Supermarine Marlin

24.6k CrazyCatZe  one month ago

Im alive!.........kinda...

This is the first plane after a long time, it was build for the „golden age aviation challange“.
I tryed implementing glass and using the new smooth edges finction, I think it worked well, what do you think?

fictional Story

The supermarine Marlin was flown first in 1936, it’s powerful engine coupled with the counterrotading propellers pushed it to extreme speeds, the vibration of the Engine although caused high stress on the whole airframe, wich would later result in a crash, killing the pilot and as it turned out the whole plane in the same jear in wich it took its first flight. Even tough a second and third one where in production the model was never again allowed to fly races, the remaining unfinished models wouldn’t bevtuched for the next 44 jears, until a museum bought and restored them In the late 80s but sadly the renuvadet aircraft never flew under their own power.

The plane is heavily inspired by the cobra MK ll and some 30s race planes.

thanks to Judmaiern and MTBCrafter for some disign choices and help with funky code

How to fly:

Nothing special here, just be cairful on landing, land slowly, when you on the ground push the tail weel down and pull the brakes.
(Press Ag1 and fire the air to ground rocket)
And use trim.

here are some pictures i took:

    BESMIRCHED!
    Dishonored,
    My poem discarded,
    A banana peel, stepped upon,
    Made some poor worker,
    Stumble and fall among
    His papers, his drink,
    His coffee and tablet.
    Only to hate the banana peel more,
    Distaste and distrust,
    Disgust and damnation.
    Or rather laugh,
    That one poem made such as him slip,
    Fall and collapse.
    A small peel in a million peels,
    But end up all the same.
    For the peel a poem; story,
    And the story a peel.

    The Stage of Sky

    In the spiral of red smoke and spinning blade,
    I feel freedom given to birds upon flight
    A lion upon hunt,
    A bear upon meal.
    A moment where the world is flipped,
    Where those stuck to earth are now sky,
    And sky now earth,
    And the new earth unexplored,
    A vast sea of cloud and blue,
    Above is the old earth,
    One of law and order,
    Of people and city,
    But below lies adventure, leaving no room for cities or people.
    This steel bird I ride,
    A mere guide in its fast journey,
    We dance in the sky near the ground,
    Daring and quicker than two on honeymoon.
    The trail tells our story of dance,
    But person after person focuses on the dancers,
    And not the story behind them,
    To take a step towards why,
    Not who.
    This ritual of flight and freedom,
    The birds hums and sings, I lead,
    We twist and flip on our floor,
    The celestial spotlight keeping pace,
    As those below envy our freedom,
    Our life in the ocean of sky.
