Arado E555 Amerika Bomber 1.9

145k RamboJutter  2.2 years ago

In my opinion, my best SP build yet. Flies brilliantly, floats in for landings, AG1 enables the bomb-bay which is controlled using vtol up, Vtol up and down rotate both gun turrets (which have my recoil guns fitted), trim up controls attitude of both guns and trim down controls other axis of rear gun. Landing gear and doors all on landing gear button. One big bomb in the bay. The Arado E.555 was a strategic bomber proposed by the German Arado company in response to the Amerika Bomber project

    @Mustang51 I borrowed a book from my dad which was about German secret bomber prijects here, the series is well worth collecting.

    @Mustang51 help yourself, this wasn't fictional just never got past the final design stage due to the war progressing badly for the third Reich

    Well if you don’t mind, the next time I take on a large fictional bomber project I might use this as inspiration.

    @RamboJutter Yeah, but it's tricky. Couldn't have done it without your fan, and really makes me happy to see you're actually interested. Also, taking a bit of a break from SP.

    @ThePrototype I haven't decided yet, there are a couple of small single seat arado fighters I've been looking at but I'm not 100% sure I'm going to build them

    @bigguns1234 it's not amphibious, I never said It was, It lands at a slow speed hence floating in to land which is a pretty common term for something that flies slow and is still controllable.

    @RamboJutter When you say “floats in for landings” do you mean that literally or figuratively as in you mean it’s so smooth it’s practically floating in the sky when landing? Because I’ve been trying to land this in the water and it keeps on sinking...?

    Reminds me of that Indiana Jones scene where Indy takes on a prop version.
