For BogdanX's Recon Challenge
"What's this, another old plane? A plane that isn't a fighter either!? But, but I thought the TAF only made fighters back then!" is what a guy said to us, little doe she know about of our past. Here at the TAF, we have found a plane of ours from a while ago but this time it's different. It has no weapons but still "Shoots" enemies. But how, how in the world does this happen? Well, let us explain. You see, there's this weird place on the fuselage that sticks out a bit, looks a bit to weird but hey, it was the best we could do at the time. That part of the plane actually lifts up, and it lets two cameras be able to shoot images. You see, it's painted a nice blue colour t blend into the sky at early morning/nights to sneak over enemy territory and take photos. They may be bad quality but it's a game changer to finding weak points of a base. Who said planes like this have to have weapons?
VTOL = Camera revelation
p.s. This is one the easiest to land tail dragger ever, and I didn't mod it so you can tip it over if you really want. Be warned though, don't slam it into the ground. It won't land like that and other creations of mine don't either. Just cause it has working suspension doesn't mean it will take a beating ;)

    Visual 8.5 (logos, numbers, nice color. Still, minor details are missing).
    Construction 9 (Very realistic shape, smooth fuselage. Custom ailerons, elevators, rudder, landing gear, cameras. Good nudging. No flaps)
    Design 8+0.5=8.5 (This has almost no recon vibe, it's a pure fighter. Still, the camera layout makes the recon role plausible +0.5. There are a few fighters (my UHU included) that were converted to recon role)
    Functionality = 8+0.5+0.5+0.5-0.5=9 (very nice handling, custom Lg is functional, custom surfaces work +0.5, excellent Yaw +0.5, nice cockpit view +0.5. A minor nose drop problem with no TRIM/Flaps to fix it -0.5)
    Impression 8 (Not a genuine recon design, excellent build, good description)

    Final Score= 43 (of 50)

    obviously, you'll score very high. Do you want the background now? Windows i suspect

    Do you think that I should have home with a realistic approach or just have gone and did a spaceship?

    Small fuselage blocks made to have small increments. It takes a while to do but should be a lot easier with 1.7 @AirPlaneBrosTM
