Night Time

Controls

Trim.....................Trim

This Stratocruiser features

-Pan American World Airways Livery
-Functional Instruments
-Basic Cockpit
-Pushback
-WingFlex!

Note

Tested Max speed is 480km/h, tested stall speed is around 155km/h with full trim support, and at takeoff; it is recommended though not necessary for proper operations, to set trim -25% to alleviate stress at nose gear since its lower to the ground than the main gears.

Since I properly registered in simpleplanes I wanted to fly the Stratocruiser, one problem; the offerings are either good enough but no interior cockpit, or has interior cockpit but not my taste so what ones to do? Well build one of course but I was absolutely garbage at replicas and woed at the proposition of building one mainly for the fact that the fuselage cross section shape is well... Unique. It was too hard for me since I do not know any better then.

Well, after taking on the Beluga and SaRo Princess projects, both of which features a double circle cross section, I am confident enough to take on the 377 project. Funnily enough the most challenging section of the plane is not the fuselage, but the cockpit only because the drawings I got are a bit distorted from the livery decals, a lot of conflicting info.

Anyways, after days of revising the cockpit I finished building the aspiration that led me here in the first place, the Boeing 377 Stratocruiser and boy did I made a satisfactory Boeing 377 in this site, of course there are some thats better but I am proud of this.

Next project is going to be a big one, might take half a year to finish because its the largest plane in the world.

    Aight, Thanks for the info

    @Strikefighter04
    Quite flattered, Its all in practice, and the fuselage parts arent actually full on circle cross sections, they're a polygon with huge flat surfaces which I then exploit to make sure it wraps in cleanly.

    Yes this is awesome! Especially how you blended the letters and decals so smoothly into the fuselage. That is a difficult skill to master in SP. @jelybaca

    @NightmareCorporation Its all in practice, and obsessive use of sub assemblies. All my planes share the same Cockpit with some manipulation to fit the flight deck and the proper interior of it.
