CAC CA-13 Echidna

3,640 KangaKangaTheRoo  2 months ago
Auto Credit Based on KnightOfRen's WW2 Bomber Challenge! (CLOSED)

Welp, lost motivation in this one. So yeah, I’ll just upload it and see how it goes.
This is my entry to KnightofRen’s bomber challenge, I liked building a bit but then lost motivation :P
Controls:
AG1 + Pitch and roll, rear turret (make sure you don’t hit your tail!) also be sure to deactivate AG 8 so you don’t stuff up your aim.
AG2-6 Jettison bombs
VTOL down: Flaps.
Backstory: Australia had somewhat of a lack of bombers, so the CAC were asked to make one, within 3 months a plan had been sketched based upon the Lockheed Hudson. After another 2 months it had flown. It was approved for the RAAF in 1941 however suffered severe losses due to being outdated when engaging against the Japanese enemy. It was retired at the end of 1945 once the war had ended.
Hope you enjoy!

    @Alta2809 Well, thanks : ) One thing you should never do is compare yourself to others, because that way lies unhappiness. Find what you're good at, and then keep at it until you become one of the best. The only person you should compare yourself to is you, from yesterday.

    That said, your builds aren't potatoes. I tried this one, and it flies quite well, which in itself puts you above most players. Then there's nothing stopping you from enhancing it until it's platinum-grade. A simple way to do this is to take one section - say, a wing - and make it its own build so it's easier to work on. Then keep subdividing it into smaller and smaller pieces so you can add more detail. You probably want to make the wings thicker, for one thing, so they get that curved surface. Once you're happy with the detailed section, make it a subassembly, and replace the original, simple section with the new one. Keep doing this until you have a platinum-grade build.

    @SledDriver Yeah good point there, I've always looked up to you among others. Your builds are unique, Mine are like a sack of potatoes, Just one of many others.

    @Alta2809 Well, if low-ranked players' builds don't get upvoted how will they ever reach a higher rank? It makes no sense to be snooty so that you only upvote platinum-level builds...
