Vought F4U-4B Corsair

19.6k KingOfTypos  9 months 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

    @KingOfTypos good news, i figured it out! It is the dummy engine that doesn't do anything that crashes the game! I fixed it by making the real engine look normal. I will upload it.

    @KingOfTypos for some reason, every time I try to fly this plane and its predecessor, it crashes the game! Is there anything you can do?

    @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.
