Auto Credit Based on RamboJutter's Engish Electric Canberra B1 (8.2)

Introduction

One of my favourite cold war bombers has always been the Canberra, i have been fortunate to sit in a few examples in museums. I also made a Canberra a long time ago, it is still my most upvoted build to date here. I thought it was time for a new version and as look would have it one of the Museums that actually lets people sit in their Canberra was holding a little friendly Canberra art contest museum weblink here

Controls

VTOL down = flaps
AG1 = activate bombs and opens bomb bay
AG2 = finger airbrake activation
TRIM = elevator trim
(Thanks to chichiwerx yet again for his help with gear door sequenceing formulas.)

    The monkey puzzle trees are well beyond me. I sat my gcse maths (that’s right Americans it’s got an ‘s’:) got a ‘b’ and never looked at it since barring simple DIY applications I thats really handy! Cheers for sharing that! @RamboJutter

    @Tang0five I dont know if you have already accumulated some funky tree commands (or are a funky tree magician yourself) but the following are what i use most often (please note i havnt written any of these): for doors that are shut then open to let gear up then shut again.
    abs(rate(smooth(GearDown, 0.5)))

    for doors that delay retract i.e already down.
    clamp01(smooth(-GearDown, 1.0))

    Engine 5% startup
    ((0.95 * Throttle) + 0.05) * (IAS / TAS)

    @Tang0five you and me both, dont get me wrong it wont stop me building what I fancy, it just irks me when I've spent so long on something for it to "slip under the radar" sort of speak (pun intended)

    I know what you mean. Some of these F, SU and Mig numbers are getting pretty tedious at seeing but that seems to appeal to the vast majority of users unfortunately. I just build what interests me and be damned! @RamboJutter

    @Tang0five wow, 23 upvotes on my 1000part x32 ripoff... that's a bit of a kick. I wonder whether it just didnt appeal to the masses (well it's not a f105 or f15 is it) or if I just caught everyone asleep.

    @Tang0five washes, oh my, everytime I buy them they sit on the shelf and by the time I want them they have dried up... I have a tendency to get some built ready for paint and then abandon them for a year or 2 but so far so good this time. I finished an ac130, p47, f15 and hellcat that I had "floating" about and then built a whirlwind, mustang, gnat, hawk, jaguar, x32 and x35. Now I'm waiting for my humbrol delivery of varnishes :) I've built more in this lockdown than I have in the last 4 years.

    Airfix was pretty much my childhood! I still like to dabble occasionally for instance when the other half is struggling for ideas birthday/Xmas time I give her a wink and a nod. I’m no wizard at it either, just started playing with various washes to highlight textures - oh boy that’s a world of hurt! @RamboJutter

    @Tang0five not sure it might have been, it has slowed my building down, i have 2-3 almost finished builds that i tinker with from time to time. To be fair i have been enjoying the lockdown and have been tinkering with some of my plastic kits again, im no modeller thats for sure but i enjoy it and its nice to get some of them out of boxes and on the display shelves lol

    Oh I hear you alright! I’ve been dragging small bits out of my sub assembly and it sods-off half a mile from my build! Still, this should have done better, did you upload on a Monday or something?! Not that day of the week should matter right now!

    @Tang0five your not wrong, I also notice that if you are not one of the top 5 users then votes are more difficult to get, if boggy posts something he gets 60 plus guaranteed but that's just the way the cookie crumbles :) What's been getting me of late is how much I'm fighting the program, buts keep detaching, moving or plain disappearing without my direct input, not to mention how the parts keep forming random connections...

    It’s criminal how short of support something like this gathers these days. If it’s not an F-somethingorather or the same mig we’ve seen yesterday and the day before, and the day before, people aren’t interested these days.

    @Diloph I have a walkthrough here if it helps, it's just a bit of paneling with a bit of forethought as to shape etc.

    Britain over here trolling us by not putting the cockpit centered to annoy the OCD enemy pilots

    I think this is more of a B.5 Upwards rather than a B.1, as the b.1 has the dome canopy, and the mk.5 was the first variant with the offset fighter canopy

    I've always loved Canberras and you just did it justice. WELL DONE SIR! The flight model is perfect, the details are perfect, the WINGS ARE AWESOME as well as the flaps, and that CAMO! DAMN, this is the best build you have ever made!

    Still wondering how you do that camo

    People are always saying stupid things, such as: "Best Canberra on site!"...how do they really know? Have they seen them all, have they even done a cursory check? Probably not, so I don't take much stock in those comments. However, this one is just beautiful...if it's not the best Canberra on site, it's certainly one of my "favourites" and certainly your best work that I can remember. Everything is integrated well, the shape is spot on, the camo job just blows me away with how good it looks--you've always been good at that details are fantastic and the flight model is great. Very engaging, it flies like a larger jet with a lower wing loading, one has to anticipate roll ins and roll outs. Great work, I'm impressed.
