Hawker Siddeley Trident 3B

Well I’ve thought it would be a minor distraction to change my original Trident 1C into the more memorable 3B, but god was I wrong.

Part of that problem was to change the British Airways livery to the Landor type seen in the 80s & 90s which involved the complicated crest (which I have as a separate build in case anyone wants to make their build a Landor livery - it’s good from far but far from good)

This has also been built using the designer mod on pc which I didn’t have first time around so the shape is “correct” (for the plans I used in case any rivet counters want to hound me:) )

Ironically BA apparently never flew the trident in this livery but I loved this livery as a kid and it has a certain nostalgic charm to it.

To fly. To serve!

    @Tang0five I was actually looking at how you made them. I’ve been trying to make nice swept back wings for a while but I always end up going back to one large half circular front section with pointy flaps and ailerons at the back hahaha. Nice work though!

    This build here is the one I eyeballed on my iPad. I got the dimensions off Wikipedia and compared screenshots side by side. So second time round I was able to cut it into sections and compare it to a 3B design and adjust accordingly. The overall shape was there but definitely needed improvement. @Hedero

    Wait you're saying you eyeballed this build? You didn't use a blueprint? @Tang0five

    See the original in my builds if you like, you still can get designer suite on old devices so I had to eyeball it originally and goodness did I get that way off in places! And no I appreciate the feedback - I’m a big boy and won’t go and cry :) :) @Hedero

    I was completely unaware of that actually. I had no idea this was an old project made on an old device. For that I would actually say this isn't a bad build. And for the record I was not in any way trying to be rude or anything about my critisicm. I think you're actually a pretty good builder, this one in particular just didsapointed me but now I know why. @Tang0five

    Agreed @Hedero but then again this is a minor distraction from real life and I don’t have the time to plow in to it unfortunately. As for the wing I again agree with you. It was made nearly 2 years ago on a 10 year old iPad and if I were to remake it I would have used fewer parts and made it smoother. Couldn’t see anything falling off the landing gear on my phone or PC prior to me releasing this but I’ll take your word for it. Cheers for the feedback!
