H.M.A. Broad Vista

79.3k Treadmill103  2.5 years ago

Take-off: 50% or more throttle, once airborne, raise gear and throttle up as required.

Landing: 30% for final approach, power off just before wheels touch.

Taxiing: low throttle and yaw.

AG1 Rotary cannon. AG2 machine guns.

In a parallel universe somewhen: His Majesty's Aircraft “Broad Vista” with its crew of three, carries out a range of tasks which include low level reconnaissance, artillery spotting, command and control, el-int and radio jamming. For defense and targets of opportunity, the craft is armed with two rotary cannon and four machine guns. As always, messages welcome. This is my take on an awesome Cutangus design.

    @Treadmill103 Neither could I. Neither could I. At best it would be random pencil sketches on a random notebook, at worst... well, I can't even imagine what it would look like so yup.

    And yet, I can’t draw or paint but nonetheless it’s all clear in my head@ThomasRoderick

    @Treadmill103 The thing is, since young I grew up watching documentaries on historical designs, and when I grew up, I spend more time on wikipedia pages on real-life cars, planes, boats, trains, etc. than I probably should have. So yeah, it's almost as if I have an internal block against making anything weird because I'm too familiar with how real-world ones would function and look like.

    @Treadmill103 Do you have to use THAT percentage? Also, I want my liver to be intact so regrettably no. Sorry.

    Well, I guess you need to stay drunk then.....the trick with me is, I imagine crazy designs then try to convince myself not to build them; if I can’t convince myself, then I build them! About 60% of builds I start never get finished though... @ThomasRoderick

    @Treadmill103 Nah, once I get sober again I would cringe over whatever the **** I've just written for the better half of the next decade. Hell, the only reason why I came up with that sentence is that your builds are just... poetic... Like, some form of abstract art that cannot be better described any other way... Hell, a novel requires world building, and by whatever deities we're gonna find out there I SUCK at that. Nor can I ever come up with builds like these to trigger the poetic bursts.

    Yeah I probably should stop drinking. Now would be nice.

    Thank you! Decent handling is the number 1 thing I go for when I build, often a big challenge because my builds are somewhat weird!@zoomzoomzoom
