  1. I just made this account so I could ask you this and says I'm too new to send messages, but could you provide a link to download that turret you made?

  2. Thank you! Generally each model takes a couple hours to build, and then another hour or so of tweaking to get right. That's if all goes well, of course. I have some planes that have taken over 5 hours to get flying right and they still aren't done.
  3. Nice! It really captures the feel of the Goose. Like said previously, a little work on the tail would improve it drastically.
  4. Ah you're right - I'll definitely have to alter the wing shape, is there anything else you noticed about the body? Thanks for the feedback!
  5. Thank you! It takes a few iterations to get it right, but this one just felt right. (I'm gonna have to go back and update all my planes now to keep them up to standard )
  6. I just updated the Spitfire I have, it's still 1:1 scaled but has a few greatly needed tweaks to the shape, specifically the wing root and wing shape, along with major changes to the flight characteristics (Now it flies a lot more like expected, with fantastic control responsiveness). The top speed is also relatively close to the actual, at around 125 m/s.
  7. The Mk VI was a Merlin variant, but you're definitely right about the looks (I never noticed that). I might look into other options for the cowling.
  8. Hello all! I'm back with another upgrade, and hopefully I can release some new planes over the next few weeks, now that the school year is wrapping up. Right now in the R&D hangar I have an F4F Wildcat, TBF Avenger, P-38 Lightning, I-16, and a highly upgraded F4U Corsair (Very exciting, I know). At the moment, however, I'm ready to release an upgraded Supermarine Spitfire! While not the most numerous RAF fighter plane in the war, the Spitfire is arguably the most famous - Considered by some to be the quintessential British fighter. With a top speed of 125 m/s, and fantastic control responsiveness, this is a plane to be reckoned with. This replica is 1:1 scale, and includes functioning flaps and realistic control layouts. Take-Off Procedure: I've found the best way to take off is to lower the flaps and set full throttle, but don't pull up until the plane tips onto the main wheels and the tailwheel is off the ground. Then pull up very gently, and retract the gear and flaps. Download Enjoy! I apologize for the long absences, with summer coming I should be able to get back in the swing of things!

The replica is also an upgrade to the original Spitfire I made, and is part of my WWII replica project (See signature) which I'll hopefully be working much more on with the onset of summer! Download Enjoy!
  10. That looks awesome! I'll have to try it with some of my naval fighters, and maybe take some ideas for the Essex class I'm working on Great work!
  11. This sounds like a fantastic project! I too have a BF109 and Spitfire built, so you can of course decide who's you'd like to use. Mine are 1:1 scale and I can definitely reduce the part count if needed for the film.
