Vought F-8 Crusader

18.0k TTHHSSSS  2.5 years ago

Hey everyone! Today I present my first realistic aircraft: the Vought F-8 Crusader. The Crusader is a carrier plane with a special wing that swivels upward to increase the angle of attack and also increase visibility in landings by angling the plane down. Controls: Act. 1 activates vtol to control the pitch of the wing and activates trim to fold the wings. Act. 2 turns on the nav. lights. Act. 3 opens the parachute, and Act. 4 turns on the landing lights. Enjoy!

    Looks great! I love that shark mouth and all the detail you have. Also, the cockpit looks nice in general.
