Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I NF

ANNOUNCEMENT

this version will be basic for now (so basic, it has no cockpit intruments), the VR version is going to be on a seperate post (an Unlisted one) as it takes a bit too much time (for me without experience doing cockpit intruments).

VARIANTS (WiP)

INTRODUCTION


The Boulton-Paul Defiant was a Turret Fighter initially designed for shooting down Bombers. The plan was to get close underneath the bombers to maximize shot effectiveness. This proved however to be fatal since theyre escorted by fighters. With no forward guns, they have no ways of dogfighting with its mediocre performance and thus they were repurposed as Night Fighters. They were put out of service not long after the introduction of the Bristol Beaufighter and the de Havilland Mosquito twin boom fighters.

CONTROLS

  • AG4 - Auto-Aim turret
  • AG8 - Nav Lights

    @Bryan5 yeh, the last "decently looking" defiant post before this one is like 3.7 Years ago. This build of mine should bring justice with how much time and "tech" went on over the past years of updates and development. So i expect someone to make a whole lot detailed and better than this build of mine in the upcoming future.

    @FarrowTECH doesnt mean i cant edit them out to correct my typos xD

    Oh and, some of them are just assumptions, like the aft antenna sliding down. I may not be keen on small details but i do sometimes do the mechanisms purely for aesthetics.

    There's a suspicious lack of typos. Thought you were the king of 'em. Nice plane tho, love the attention to detail of the compliant mechanism.

    @BogdanX yeh, i should have downloaded a curveable one on the website. And scale it up/down to match it.

    My only concern was the part count possibly making the aircraft go up to 660+.
