Lavochkin La-200B

Another challenge, another day. I tried to make this look good with only 104 parts avaliable, and I think it went pretty well.

Description:

The Lavochkin La-200B was an experimental all-weather interceptor designed by the Soviet Union.

Nothing too snazzy, VTOL for flaps.

    @BogdanX Yeah. I can see a lot of room for improvement on my part. it's unfortunate that some people don't

    @asteroidbook345 that was the beauty of the challenge. Low part count means compromise and finding clever ways. Is more difficult to make a nice plane with 100 parts than make a beautiful one with 1000 parts.
    Thank you for your effort, is sad people turned against me just cause i was rating fair

    @BogdanX Thanks. I couldn't quite figure out how to do the bluepring matching until after it was uploaded so that's part of the reason it's not great. I probably could have made it nicer, but 104 parts is a difficult task.

    Visuals:

    fuselage lines too thick, basic red star. Main color is not plausible, real thing is gray with very few gloss.

    Construction:

    basic wings (ailerons, flaps, rudder, tailplanes), thick trailing edges, no custom Lg (except front), poor canopy and intake construction. Deployed flaps sink inside fuel tanks. Good cockpit view

    Functionality:

    No autoroll, trimming function present, LG turning function present. When deployed on runaway, tail hits the ground. Severe deviation during takeoff run. Flaps a bit too strong. Good stability and handling, roll and pitch are plausible. YAW is not great.

    Replica:

    Blueprint and specs matching is not great
    MAx speed (around 900mph at 36,000ft) is 200 mph higher as it should.

    @asteroidbook345 pick one, rule say only the best entry of one builder will be evaluated (is not fair that a player with more builds to have more chances than a player with one entry. This challenge is about quality, not quantity.
