Jello Aircraft Corporation Light Tri-Gear Fighter Jet Conversion

by   1,727 JelloAircraftCorporation  4 months ago

This aircraft, the first foray into jet propulsion by J.A.C., is a conversion of a Light Tri-Gear Fighter to be powered by two Blasto Corp. J15s. Considered a success, it did have some teething troubles, including heat damage to the fuselage next to the engines and the tail surfaces. These problems were solved by fitting titanium heat shields to the affected areas. This aircraft convinced Jello Aircraft that the future of aviation lay with jets, and was the start of an illustrious history designing jet aircraft. It is here depicted in the J.A.C house colors of silver and red. This aircraft has realistic performance for a jet aircraft of this era, so don't expect particularly high speeds. As always, feedback is appreciated.

    Nice! Yeah Sarpanitu’s mk.III uses the historical cockpit and looks really classy interior. Easy to install too. He’s an incredible builder! @JelloAircraftCorporation

    Yeah, I do that with all my planes. I'll look into Sarpanitu's cockpits- I think I have one of them, but it's a modern one. Thx for the spotlight btw @Hyattorama

    I figured it out! Haha. Thanks for the instructions. I like this plane! And I like the history you wrote along with it. I never thought to do that haha. Makes it feel like more than just a 3D model in a simple game.

    Maybe you should install Sarpanitu’s mk.III historical cockpit on this plane ;)
