@ThomasRoderick true... yet a B29 would carry 32 such bombs on shorter runs, and even a good old B17 could have up to 16. These bombers were certainly not sent in as "lone cowboys"; hundreds of planes were often involved in a single bombing raid. As for the "need", well...
Gotta love Swedish planes. Wouldn't buy one, though -it would probably come with a cheap Allen key and a crappy assembly manual :D
Great mod! This is what we needed; the possibility to use textures rather than having to add 1000 parts just for silly details. It won't really do much good, though... SP seems to be most popular with potato-phone users; with every build, everyone's always crying "please no mods". So unless this gets integrated into SP itself... ah, well.
@PioThePioneer Oh yes! I already found a use for it... I'll put it as fuselage art on the bomb bay hatch of a WW2 bomber... "open all night" :D :D
Tora, Tora! And did I mention Tora..?
It's a real pity I can upvote this only once. This plane is one of the few I actually save to HDD and keep around. 51 upvotes is not what I expected... a few more certainly would do no harm.
Ah yes, in those days it was actually a Toyota. They have given up now, and seem to be happy to put some badly designed bodywork on a BMW chassis.
@Mustang51 Thanks! If they had built it, it probably wouldn't have flown at all. First hurdle would be to find a pilot crazy enough to try...
Quick question: not being Asian, I always fail to see the connection between cartoon schoolgirls and tanks/planes/battleships. Come to think of it, I fail to see the point of cartoon schoolgirls -period. Can anyone offer some insights..?
Other than that: cool build!
@HelloHelloTheUnt sure I'll use SP's standard gauges once they're available -until then, I'll have to make do with the mod. BTW; I never use a mod that's absolutely required to make the build work... the cockpit instruments are mostly cosmetic; you're welcome to DL the plane without using the mod, which makes the cockpit view a bit less realistic but doesn't really change the way the plane looks, feels or flies.
Low hat to you -this is extremely well made. Still, it's like taking a beauty queen to a bodybuilding contest; no matter how good she looks, she's simply in the wrong place. I'm sure there are lots of sites for anime fan-art and such; this however isn't one of them.
@realluochen9999 Standard: download, undo, redo -presto, plane without mods.
Nice- but I doubt Dassault would ever call one of its planes "Retolshiya". Nondescript as it may be, it sounds slightly Russian -never gonna happen :D :D
Very well-made. No idea which plane I can apply this to, though ;) 7-11 air force...
Love the concept! A bit blocky in some places though -and this is constructive criticism, don't get me wrong. You can build anything in SP with prolific use of paneling, but you gotta make all the connections manually and maximize the effect of the "smoothing" function. With some more (quite tedious) work, this can be a phenomenal build instead of a great one...
My Blinder gets a mobile-friendly brother at last... cool!
Definitely one of the better 109's on Simpleplanes. Great job!!
nice pic of Eddy Wally... LOL, I thought the guy was always just bragging when he claimed to be big in Japan
@Northsoutheastthrop should probably have a twin-barrel GSh-23 @ its belly, centerline, just behind the cockpit -200 to 260 rounds.
Looks cool... but what's with the neg weight?
Vintage steampunk. Nice build!
Who knew the Latvians invented dieselpunk? Cool build!
Fabulous looking Tunnan! Don't worry about the missing airbrakes -braking is for pussies anyway :P
@WarHawk95 You're absolutely right -still, I wanted to give it a bit more air-to-air & less air-to-surface in this case. Guess it was a choice made by the air force in those days, there doesn't seem to be a real technical objection wrt size or weight. So yes, you could swap & put two Martels underwing and a single centerline-mount R530.
@EngineerOtaku bah... I gave up on "camouflage schemes" long ago. It's one of SP's limitations; any attempt to camouflage patterns invariably f*s up the build. Whatever you do, it's always going to look bad and give the plane that "lego-quality" feel. No blotches, stripes, spots etc for me -at least until SP's developers discover textures. Good idea about the different models though -I may do some tweaking when I get the time...
@GuyFolk as Ennio Morricone would put it: <whistle whistle> wa wa wa...
Horten hears a who!
One year only? The communists always made 5-year plans… and then took 50 years to complete them. Well, the two or three that actually got completed, that is… 😂
A puffer fish starfighter :D :D
Nice! I'm building a slightly less potent Junkers myself :D :D
Happy B-day, anyway :D @Augusta
Great build, this. Guess I will learn to stop worrying and love the bomb...
@Tookan LOL the Revell model only has 190 parts, so you could be right...
@LieutenantSOT Thanks! The score looks good, so far at least... wait & see what others come up with...
@LieutenantSOT sure... I have something partly cooked up :P
@Ferrarivsenzoslapp what should work is to just DL the plane, when you get the error about the mods hit unto, then hit redo. Plane should load, modless...
@LaunchAttempt yes, YAK-36 "Fishface" would have worked
@Falco7 Right -but that's always going to be the discussion, isn't it? There's no such thing as "mobile friendly" anyway, since it all depends on which mobile device you have. People shouldn't complain about the part count of a build, but rather about the limits of their device.
@iniMiiW still haven't found a reliable method to catapult a 3-ton plane off a ship's deck in SP, I'm sorry to say. Putting it on a Bismarck will be no problem -flying it off one will be a bit more tricky...
@CRATE52PART2 LOL... ah well, there's probably more than a few Russians around in France, so why not.
@Luxray102 should be listed under "required mods" in the Specifications...
Great work, an absolute masterpiece! I wanted to upvote sooner, but it seems that after giving a single upvote to a build "you're doing this a bit too much" and "you have to cool down" :D :D
@DuneBoi of course you can detach the whole thing and save it as a subassembly
@asteroidbook345 so you're actually telling me to take my old Mirage, slap on the MiG-21's wings and add the lift engines from the E-7PD..? ;) :D
@EngineerOtaku No, it's not -you use much less parts, and still manage to capture the plane's forms perfectly. Your version just has less nuts & bolts & trimmings, for which I'm sure all mobile users will thank you. An absolute thumbs up!!
@Trainzo Ah.., thanks, you're almost making me blush ;) remind me to pay you a beer (or a glass of wine) next time I'm in France...
@AuroraPolaris yep... and to top it off, the damn thing sticks out its tongue at you with every takeoff :D
@Random04 Same drill as always: load the plane, when getting the error about the mod hit the "undo" button and then the "redo" button. Plane will load without the mod.
