Fokker DXX. Fictional WW1 Fighter

3,102 Chrisk1993  3 months ago
Auto Credit Based on LaBaguette's WW1 (Fictional) Warbird Challenge! [CLOSED]

Fake History: The DXX. was developed early in WW1 as a small fast dogfighter. The low wing biplane design gave a good mix of lift and maneuverability. It was also quite fast for the time. It had a pair of forward firing machine guns firing through the prop.

    @Mikey101234 It's not supposed to be the flag, just the colours of Prussia. I probably should have switched the red and black so it doesn't look like the modern flag. As for th gauges looking steampunk style I imagine they would since that aesthetic is based in technology from the same era as this plane.

    @Urocyon that's wierd I test flew it before I posted and I swear the rudder was fine. Oops. but thanks the wings were a pain.

    @Chrisk1993 After a bit of searching I found that the forward top red tail piece is connected to the dorsal wire, it's what prevents the rudder from working.

    I do like how you constructed your wings, BTW.

    @Mikey101234 I'll admit I wouldn't know about the gauges, but the Ansaldo SVA and the Eindecker would like to disagree with you on the engine cowl.

    First off, the most reasonable thing about it is that the flag on the rail is the flag of Germany today, the flag that is supposed to be on it is the Imperial German Flag, and second off, the cover of the engine wouldn’t be just bare metal, it would either be painted or most likely be covered In cloth and the gauges look to steampunky@Urocyon

    @Mikey101234 I don't really see anything steampunk about it. It literally has exhaust for a gas engine?

    @Urocyon rudder works fine my dude and I wouldn't say it's missing a windscreen I just didn't put one on. And I'm using my imagination cause apparently this game won't let you fire through the prop unless the gun is right up against it.

    Really cool!, although it's missing a windscreen and working rudder. I guess you're using the experimental deflectors instead of a synchronization gear? Overall, very nice.

    @Mikey101234
    I dunno, looks about spot on to me. Some of the late fighters got around 150 mph too.
