Vought F4U-4B Corsair

12.8k KingOfTypos  one month ago

Fixed

Fixed Catapult launch version on USS Beast by giving it a catapult connector.

History


The F4U-4 was the latest and last variant of the Corsair family to see action during WWII, it was fitted with a more powerful P&W R-2800 Double Wasp Radial engine, aswell as receiving a 4 Bladed Propeller rather than the 3 bladed one. It was also fitted with an Air-Intake under the nose and a Flat bulletproof glass rather than a Curved one, it came at a cost of reduced range by removing the unarmored wing fuel tanks however.

The F4U-4B variant was fitted with 4 20mm AN/M3 cannons rather than 6 .50 cal machineguns.

Outro

In gonna confess, i kinda messed it up, the plane was supposed to be 12.5m wide and 10.2m long, but by the time i realized it was a bit too big, i was already done with its wing construction. And so the size of this thing is 0.8m longer, and 0.7m wider than what it should be.

Credits to ReinMcDeer's F4U-1D where i basicly got the landing gear from, and from ChiChiWerx for the USAF roundel.

    A little... fineTuner cheat you can do, basically, take the length and a calculator and multiply it until the golden length is reached, let's say your plane is a bit too big, multiply it!! by lesser number of course, get to that sweet decimals and alakablam there you got it pal

    @JustDragon, you need to try and slice the fuselages in order to make the rounders blend seamlessly instead of looking like stickers on a model aircraft. You chose the easier latter method.

    @ThomasRoderick basicly made a spawn location near USS Tiny Two fleet, then repawned there with the quadcopter and land it on USS Tiny Two flight deck, before making another spawn location.

    @Bellcat im not exactly good at making roundels, aswell as detailing the cockpit, so i just downloaded a "Sub-assembly" in the website. And just basicly did the cockpit interiors with the necessary gauges and controls.

    That’s pretty good (although the roundel’s looks ruined the plane’s looks).
