Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat (Minsi III)

60.4k EpicPigster1  3.5 years ago

The second plane in my ultra detailed series. This time, she's even better, with proper wings (with working flap things!) and a historically accurate cockpit. Easily my best plane and best Hellcat on the site.

This plane is a direct replica of David McCampbell's Minsi III, complete with the accurate lettering and 25 kill markings (he got 34 kills). Guns are also historically accurate, as well as Sto Wings.

Massive thanks to @BogdanX for helping to fix the engine and @Weaverfish for letting me base the gunsight off of his.

CONTROLS:
AG1: Sto-Wings
VTOL: Flaps
TRIM: Trim

Pilots Notes:
- Gunsight it deadly accurate, use the inner ring and lines to line up your shots. This gunsight is capable of shooting down a Zero from 1 mile away using the inner ring.
- Land VERY gently, the springs are very sensitive. Come in at around 145 to 160 mph and touch down as gently as possible with a nose attitude of at least 0 degrees (5 degrees recommended).

If this thing hits 100 upvotes i'll make another one.

    @Rodrigo110 Yeah, it really sucks. I would never do something like that anyways, my brother is always trying to screw me over. Should I make a forum post telling everyone it isn't me?

    Ok, sounds good. I really sympathise with the situation you’re in; everyone that has seen that forum post now thinks that you’re begging for upvotes @EpicPigster1
