  1. Here's a late/post-war fighter design, along with 2 derivatives. All made with FAR, AJE and RealFuels. Rapier Mk IF: Merlin V1650-9, large fuselage, large wing, rudder strake; heaviest and slowest variant, though extremely good rate of climb Rapier IIF: Jumo 213A, reduced wing, skinnier fuselage, smaller tailplane and rudder - far lighter, faster, much greater rate of roll, turns and climbs even better Rapier IIIF: R3350 Duplex Cyclone, fatter forward fuselage, modified tailplane - fastest and quickest climbing variant, roll comparable to IIF (same wings) albeit with a worse turn.
  2. Here's an interwar-styled monoplane fighter made from B9 Pwings, using FAR, AJE and RealFuels. Not a particularly fast fighter but extremely light (2t fully loaded, using BDArmory you can simulate an aluminium-clad wooden airframe),and can therefore turn on a dime. Using its Merlin XII it climbs and accelerates like a rocket. I'm using Scatterer, Textures Unlimited and EVE/AVP: https://imgur.com/4SruPjkhttps://imgur.com/4SruPjk https://imgur.com/4SruPjk
  3. Here's a more obscure one, the Martin Baker MB. 3: This and its later derivative, the MB. 5 were arguably the best fighters to come out of Britain during the war, but engine allocation issues and the winding down of the war prevented either from reaching production.
  4. Shame to have missed it this year I'll be there for the next one. Is the infinite turning battle thing still present with the BDA AI? I'm in the mood for a big, heavy, powerful energy fighter but alas it's never seemed to work.
  5. Yak-7B (1942 production, M-105PF engine) Performs almost exactly to historical specifications (~370 mph TAS at 3000m). I also built the Yak-7A with the earlier M-105 engine, but really the only external difference is the tailwheel being fixed in the 7A.
  6. N U T I've started work on the Yak series, here is an (almost) finished Yak-1 ser.1 Overspeed wing failure!
  7. Would be interesting to see some replicas of the new BAE Tempest II fighter project.
  8. Supermarine Spiteful NN660 (Spitfire XIV with Spiteful wings, acted as a prototype)
  9. Spitfire PR. XI For reference:
  10. Oh boi they look good! I completely rebuilt the Tempest V and made a new Tempest II out of it, it's now a hefty bit more accurate. The big difference was a slimmer, tapering fuselage that flared out to the engine, as opposed to the thicker one beforehand, as well as larger wings.
  11. P-51D-5NA No dorsal fin, single radio antennae, high-altitude V-1650-3 engine P-51D-10NA Dorsal fin, two radio antennae, low-medium altitude V-1650-7 engine
  12. Having been through some threads I've found some excellent craft from both World Wars scattered throughout. I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread for these craft to be shown off properly. Absolutely any plane, vehicle or ship designed and/or built between 1914 and 1950! Here are some of mine to start off: Hawker Typhoon IB Hawker Tempest II & V Vickers-Supermarine Spitfire, way too many marks
  13. With a bit of surgery on the Tempest V, here's a Typhoon!
  14. It uses a lot of cfg edited parts I don't think it would be practical to share it rn Some more of the Tempest V
  15. Tempest V Sea Fury FB. 11 (Bill ditched and it sunk lmao. Nice flying, mate)
  16. Beginning to recreate a WWII era twin-engined fighter, can you guess which one?
  17. yeah this has been a problem, had to replace the control surfaces on all of my aircraft
