Twin Hurricane MKXI (for RodWan WWII style challenge) Take 2.

136k RamboJutter  1.5 years ago

So as the British Government appears to be underfunding the RAF and they now have more pilots than planes, they have decided to go back to basics, Rolls Royce have restarted production of the merlin (but using modern equipment and materials) with significant increases of power, the airframe is now created with lightweight materials such as carbon fibre and plastics to complement the wooden frame, armament has been improved using modern rockets, guns and missiles with associated countermeasures, a robust arresor hook has been fitted for Navy use (to be fair it could land on the QE carrier with no problem) the two tone Grey scheme has been adopted so it matches the potholed hardstandings that it will occupy, A Hurricane cost approx £££5000pounds to make in 1940, this equates to about 300k today, so you can have 243 plus change of these for the price of 1 F35B. I hope that this fits the requirements better.

    Hey Rambo. I got an idea. I checked out that deviant art page of that guy you base your planes of of. AND THEY LOOK SOO LEGITAMATE. so I was thinking of making a forum post about trying to convince people that these planes where used in ww2

    The load times are terrible. I might delete the cockpit for testing
