Torpedo Bomber

2,225 Mickk  1.2 years ago

I made a WWII airplane and as it was not much good as a fighter, I made it a Torpedo Bomber instead.

4 Torpedos, 6 heavy machine guns for weapons.

Countermeasures because the bad guys have missiles, the cheaters.

Aussie markings because why not?

Controls as per normal.
Stalls come on very quickly, so watch your speed on landing.

EDIT: I have apparently gotten the markings wrong.
I found this out while doing a little research on Australian WWII aircraft markings.
The roundels should be BLUE, WHITE, RED, with the red being the smallest.
I got it right on my other WWI plane, the WOMBAT.
Other mildly interesting info in the comments.

    @WarHawk95
    LOL!
    No, I'm Australian. I goofed on the markings, as I mentioned in a previous comment here.

    So , as noted in the edit to the description, I goofed. D'oh! /homer off.
    I also discovered that during WWII an Australian aircraft was mistaken for a Japanese aircraft due to the RED center of the Australian Roundel, so the red bit was removed, leaving a blue roundel with a white center.
    When I make my next fictional WWII aircraft, it will probably have that on it instead.

    So, I'm trying 'new' things, new for me that is.

    The separated flaps/ailerons from the wings for instance. I've done this ONCE before.
    I think it looks good and it is one less thing that needs to be done by adding strips that pushes the part count up needlessly, well not as much as it could.
    Some builders are big on details, me, not so much, but I'm getting better at it.
    Constructive criticism and advice is welcome.
