I, HolidayTheLeek had a dream... ...and that dream was to build the largest weeb thing I could think of. With the help of @Xen0m3 and his brother, Mika (who doesn't have a forums account). After two months of concentrated hamon weeb energy, we managed to complete all four of the Kongou Class Battleships. Each of them being in 1:1 scale, having fully rotating turrets, and working catapults and floatplanes each. As of the 18th of June, Kongou is the largest craft on KerbalX (From right-to-left, Kongou, Hiei, Kirishima and Haruna) ----- IJN Kongou Made by Me Kongou is the lead ship of the class, and appropriately the largest one in terms of part count too. I gave her stock decals as well. ----- IJN Hiei Made by Xenome ----- IJN Kirishima Made by Me ----- IJN Haruna Made by Mika ---
I've decided to move up a war for planes to replicate (Don't worry, I'll still be doing some more WWI planes! ) and this was the result. It was my first time working with a custom cockpit, and I really hope it doesn't look like absolute trash . This replica was a lot more difficult to do than the previous two, so if quality is lacking, I apologise The plane in real life: ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Now, before I show off my replica of the Zero, I'd first like to credit MajorJim for the revolutionary stock bearing technology he's developed. Without it, my planes would still be using jet engines to fly *Gasp* (Link Here) With that out of the way, here's the Mitsubishi A6M Zero! The A6M Zero was a naval fighter developed by the Japanese in World War II. It was brought early into the war and gained a legendary status of being a fantastic dogfighter. It was so fantastic that it's kill ration was 12 - 1. It was considered the finest fighter until 1943. The zero had manoueverability that was un-matched, even compared to the Spitfire. Unlike the allied fighters however, the Zero had a lack of armour. This saved on weight which caused it to have excellent range. I based the replica primarily off the A6M2 Zero. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Pictures ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Top Speed: 52.3m/s (May vary with flight) Top Speed (In Dive): 70-80m/s (Depends on your bravery) Takeoff Speed: 19-20m/s Stall Speed: 12-18m/s ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Download and Instructions Since the instructions to fly this thing are literally the exact same as my Sopwith Camel, here's an extract to save me some time Just ignore the bit about being a twenty minuter, it ain't World War I anymore (Download here) ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thanks for reading my post! I'll be returning to making World War I Planes soon I think, coming up next is a replica of the Fokker D1. Depending on how I feel.
