Handley Page Victor B.Mk.2

V Bomber force assembled!


“Bombs gone!”

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Handley Page Victor B.2. The third and final of the awesome V bombers operated by the Royal Air Force.

This has been my most time consuming (and buggy) build to date and it was a royal pain in the posterior to get finished and would often follow this routine; add part, attempt to save, crash to desktop, reboot SP, attempt to add part again, save with fingers crossed, (it saved woooop!), attempt to press play to make sure part works, crash to desktop, open SP, load last saved variant, press play, oh it loads huzzah! And repeat cycle for the last 20 odd parts.

Notes on this build.

Ive built her in the role in which she was intended (albeit minus the ‘nuclear’ ordinance) and is complete with a suite of free-fall bombs to utilise the working bomb bay. In the anti flash paint scheme the Victor would be armed with the blue steel standoff nuclear missile as seen on the Vulcan I made at the start of the year. For the sake of variety I decided on regular bombs.

This is 1:1(ish) scale, although she is short by 3 feet in length (arrest me now ;) )the flaps are now a gimmick as rightly pointed out by Rambo they were too powerful. It was taking increasing efforts to alter bits to this build due to the aforementioned crashes so if you really want Uber lift hit AG7 and use the flaps like normal with vtol. Aux air intakes pop up when the engines are at idle as for the real aircraft and air brakes are custom made.

Notes on landing, this thing stops on a sixpence when landing which is rather unrealistic. This is to do with the stock front wheel I used to cut down on parts and due to the constant crashing I couldn’t be bothered to make a custom nose wheel, apologies. The real victor also has a landing chute that this one lacks, it really doesn’t need it trust me!

Controls

VTOL down for flaps
AG1 raise/lower bomb doors
AG2 initiates bomb release sequence
AG8 Lights

My thanks to RamboJutter for his feedback and the SP community in general for their continued generosity in donating modded parts that make something like this possible on iOS, my thanks to you all!!

    Cheers! @EnderSharky I always thought the victor was a menacing looking bird. Considering it was designed in the 50s this thing must have looked like something from the future buzzing the public over Blighty!

    Well done! You captured this planes uglyness with extreme precision! It's the best looking ugly plane ever!

    @Franticmatty thanks for the spotlight, I think I remember reading somewhere you like the V bombers - there are issues with this one (like the others I suppose)

    Or the griffin head is like a victors cockpit fuselage? (Seen as it’s from the 50s its probably this way round! :) )@Syabil

    Ha ha yeah I can see that now! I was just trying to put a picture of all three in but there was no way I could spawn all three in game for a screenshot without an imminent crash! @MEERKAT978

    Having the Thunderbirds Theme playing in the background would be very appropriate, lining up those bombers at the base of a runway and jetting all four off the tarmac at once.

    @Tang0five i will make a post with parts with the right values... Like fuselages with no collisions, disabled Calculate drag, 0 mass, hinges and rotators without mesh and usable for only one way, LG parts like no collision beacons, wheels with low brake etc etc... You can save it and when you need something, you load it and take the right part as subassembly

    I would do although it’s quite hard to find specifics like stock nose gear with brake torque set to 3. Supposed I could have requested the modded part from someone but I didn’t think it was going to be such an issue. Looking forward to your parts for iOS users. @BogdanX

    @Tang0five you can take edited parts from other builds and save them as subassemblies. I will make a post with edited parts for IOS users soon.
