If you wish to participate, state your country and class of fighter in the comments.

So basically, this challenge is pretty much a rip-off of LieutenantSOT's WW2 Fighter Challenge, but WW1. I hope to be collaborating with LieutenantSOT to grade and test planes.

Anyway...

RULES:

  • XML is allowed (no mods)
  • Must be above 50 parts and below 1000. Let's be a little mobile friendly.
  • Props only, guys. This is WW1, so the rules are a lilt stricter.
  • Must be original.
  • Must be fictional, but must be realistic.
  • Try to make your plane look like it's from your chosen country.
  • Try to make the speed realistic. So yeah, no supersonic biplanes.
  • Must be a successor.
  • Armaments (if any) must be realistic. So light machines guns either firing through the prop or on the top wing.

CLASSES:

  • Medium/Light Fighter: Small, single seater, single engine planes with mainly offensive machine guns as armaments. Speeds around 170-190 mph.
  • Heavy Fighter: Usually larger than medium/light fighters, wing a pilot and sometimes a rear gunner, but still single engine. Speeds around 160-180 mph.
  • Scout: Basically a fighter without guns. Should be a little slower though. Speeds usually around 150-170 mph.
  • Bomber: Big, multi-engined, and slow as f*ck. Can carry at least three bombs. Have fun on this one.

COUNTRIES:

  • France
  • Britan
  • United States
  • Prussia (Germany)
  • Italy
  • Russia
  • Japan

(IF YOU WANT MORE COUNTRIES JUST TAG ME AND SAY SO)

Deadline: I will stop taking builds on January 31. Testing will go on for a week or two, or until further notice.

Tagging Requirements: Tag both me (MajorSix) and LieutenantSOT on your final post.

Happy building!

    I have made an example plane for participants to study and get a feel of what is expected. You can find my aircraft here:

    @MajorSix I'm making a japanese type warbird, dunno if you need to know this before i post it, but im gonna say anyway.

    An experimental Japanese futuristic(For the time) Airplane made for use in WW2, but may not make it.
    The plane is not supposed to fly, and is only for display in the Museum of Aeronautical Science.

    I know this is for ww1, but this warbird was still created in the WW1 era, just it can't be flown in WW1, as it's very unstable.

    @DJ2keroni Hmmmm... I try to keep the builds in my contests inline to the rules... If you post a mobile friendly version that’s under 1000 parts, I’ll let it slide. :)

    @MajorSix Hi, I wanted to ask if it’s okay if my build has a bit more than 1000 parts.
