Auto Credit Based on CRJ900Pilot's Mig 17 challange wip

I present to you the one and only, Mig-17 Fresco

(Important information is after the gallery, and credits are at the end)
Here is my photo gallery of the plane. Some pictures show features, others are just for viewing pleasures:











Anyway, here is the important stuff as the challenge requires

  • Introduced in October 1952
  • Designed by Mikoyan - Gurevich
  • Brief history

    • The Mig-17 was a remake so to speak of the Mig-15. It was bigger and stronger than the previous successor. It had many variants, some to name are the Mig-17 Fresco (Fresco A to E), Mig-17 SN, and there are a few more

  • Options and Specifications (in real life)

    • Length = 36 ft, 5 in

    • Width = 31 ft, 7 in

    • Height = 12 feet, 6 inches

    • Weight (Varies depending on fuel, armament, load out, etc.) = 14,770 lbs

    • Engine = Valer Klimov VK-1 turbojet


  • Controls

    • Vtol Up = flaps

    • Break = Air breaks

    • Ag 1+Gear = Close gear doors (Retract gear, press Ag1, and leave it on. Extend gear normally with Ag1 still on and then turn off when gear is extended)

    • Ag 2 = Afterburner

    • Ag 3 = Drop drop tanks (Recommended when pulling high G's)

    • Ag 4 = Deploy and toggle landing lights

    • Ag 8 = Toggle navigational lights

Heres a blueprint for your viewing pleasures

This SP model is an almost perfect blueprint match, I would say about 95% accuracy
Hope you enjoy this, I spent a while on it. Have fun!

Here are the credits:

  • WalrusAircraft for the B-52 in one of the pictures
  • EternalDarkness for making it fly and rockets
  • Sauce for the engines
  • mikoyanster for guns, missiles, and making and exception to the part count
  • ForeverPie for help with wheel breaks
