First of all, my commiserations to the 6 people involved in the mid-air collision more than a week ago. It was originally a month or two break before i get back in SP again, but after seeing the news i decided to build this P-63F Kingcobra (albeit 4 days late before starting to build it) as a commemoration, to not just the fallen, but also the B-17 and the last surviving F variant of the P-63 in existence.
R.I.P. Craig Hutain who piloted the P-63F Kingcobra during the airshow
The P-63 Kingcobra was a successor to the infamous P-39 Airacobra. The design was based off the XP-39E, which was intended to use the Continental I-1430 engine, it wasnt delivered in time however, so it was replaced with the Allison V-1710-47. In P-63's case also had the same Engine. (And the F having the Allison V-1710-135)
The "F" variant in particular were only built in 2 (43-11719 and 43-11722) . The last Surviving F variant sadly got into a Mid-Air Collision tragedy during the "Wings over Dallas" airshow in November 2022.

Credits to OllielebananiaCFSP for the outstanding screenshots.
I had to rush build this thing, so some details may seem off (especially the cockpit controls) from the real one, aswell as not having experience VR (yet), so do take note of it.
The Size are 1:1, but the weight is sadly 800kg less.
For anyone with a SP VR, pls try the VR controls on my behalf if its usable, and send me your feedback on the comments so i can tweak and update it in the XML file.
I forgot to mention that this aircraft is my first tricycle wheel aircraft. you could say its a also a testbed for similar layout aircrafts in the future.

A perfect build
Another extinct plane 😞
I feel so bad for the families of the P-63 and B-17 pilots, this plane is one of the greatest and will always be remembered
@OUGHTO it had to be done, beautiful planes, beautiful builds, bravo guys.
Rest In Peace...
RIP for my favourite WWII fighter P63.
@OUGHTO that would be thanks to OllielebananiaCFSP for thinking of such background. And ye same, just like my previous builds, i cant take my eyes not stare at it in awe lol.
I am a simple man. I see Kingcobra, I upvote.
My thoughts and prayers for those effected by this incident
