Blackburn Buccaneer S.2B 6.0

145k RamboJutter  1.8 years ago
Auto Credit Based on RamboJutter's Blackburn Buccaneer S MK2B 5.1

Ag1 for rotary bomb bay, Ag2 for folding wings and nose, Ag3 for flaps, Ag4 for lights, Ag5 for arrestor hook (not advisable for landings), brake operates the rear airbrake, all moving tail, trim for elevator, the rest is self explanatory. Roundels are rounded... to fit the fuselage, yes there is some autoroll which im at a loss to explain / fix but perfectly flyable (if someone want to identify why it would be awesome), thanks, i think, to @tang0five for the inspiration and sanity checks during the build. I left off some lettering and odd bits like aerials etc as it was starting to get too high a part count for my poor pc. enjoy.

    @RamboJutter well it's because i think that you can do it miles better than I can and I already tried to, it's pretty bad

    @Moosehouse yes I can, but I don't know if I really want to, why not try it yourself?

    Can you make an F-4U4B Corsair?

    @Vuki11 it's an all moving tail plane, it's only down when the elevator is applied.

    @Alien thanks, I'm looking on the positive side, it has extra manoeuvrability if u turn right :) glad you liked it though.

    Lovely job mate! My Bucc had(has) autoroll problems too. I thought it was the offset refuelling probe at the time, but no. Destined to remain one of the unsolved mysteries of our age, methinks.

    @RamboJutter They were indeed a technologically-sound plane with few problems (aside from the ever-present metal fatigue issue that crashed several planes), great plane all-around, don't get me wrong. But they were short-lived, under-produced, and overshadowed by replacements too quickly to remain relevant. They were very under-utilized, and are remembered more as museum pieces than weapons of war. A victim of obscurity, sadly.

    @Sunnyskies as man it's an awesome bit if kit, I've stood near them as they thunder down a runway and watched documentaries showing how they bosses the yanks at red flag etc, designed for a purpose that they fulfilled perfectly. Plus with all those pivoting, rotating and turning bits it's ideal for this game :)

    Nice. Never liked the BlackBucc much, but this a very nice build regardless.
    Well done.

    @ChiChiWerx thanks man, that's one of the most detailed and positive comments I've had. Glad you like it, I enjoyed building it but as you can imagine with so many moving bits I'm a bit frazzled (I so wish the game wouldn't randomly attach parts, I'm working on the airbrake so why has the nose stopped working... ). Thanks again :)

    Good proportions, nice detailing, I especially like the curved roundels (must have taken a bit of work), flies pretty well (auto roll is a bogey to almost all complex builds, would love to solve it for the entire community). A couple of design choices led you into directions I wouldn't necessarily have gone, which I find interesting. I especially like the speed brake function...very accurate...843 parts, wow! Very heavy, though newer devices (such as my iPhone 8) won't have problems handling it, so don't think it should be as much of a deterrent as some builders. Nice, wish I could Spotlight this, but I don't have the points!
