Sector 7 Space Laboratories - Sentinel - Alien Takeover After watching the 80's movie Top Gun recently, I really got pumped watching those Tomcats in action. After building my first F14 and sharing it on the WIP Thread I got some tips from other Kerbonauts which help make a better F14 than what I started with. Then one thing lead to anther and I decided to try my luck building an Aircraft Carrier to support the Tomcats. I remember seeing someones video making attempts to land an Aircraft on a Carrier so I decided to give it a try. Now I had my hands on what became the Sentinel Project. After hours of testing I landed a S7-F14 TomCat on the Sentinel Aircraft Carrier. The Sepratrons worked great for stopping power during landings and these landings needed precision timing, height and speed. This was such a ridiculous challenge for me and I just couldn't quit until I succeeded with a landing. This was very difficult, and if I had to guess I would say nearly 40 attempts were made for this successful landing shown on the Tutorial Video. Now with an Aircraft Carrier and Tomcats to present I decided to make a Video and Alien Takeover was the result. I have a few regrets about the Craft and Video but I really had to find a stopping point after so many hours going into it. Overall I do enjoy the work and hope you do also.
