Hey guys,

Some really nice 3-Views of various aircraft.  Some are quite large drawings, all freeware.

Thanks for that Bill

I picked up a lovely clean 'Spiteful' from there. I've had an eye out for one of those for a while... Cool

That is indeed a good site.  Couldnt believe I found it.  I am always looking for various 3-Views and never had seen that one.

500 mph, 4000 fpm and that was for the production version... Shocked

Is it a 'Mustfire' or a 'Spittang'?

How about a Super Corsair instead? This one will really accelerate you...

Will be a beauty indeed!

It's pretty much a Spitfire but the famous elliptical wings had pretty much run out of road with the now approaching super sonic speeds so they fitted the Mustang style 'laminar' flow wings to a late mark 'Spit' and the 'Spiteful' and 'Seafang' were the result.

The late piston planes we're incredible and the ultimate development of the technology which have never been bettered, the BIG radials like the Corsair, Bearcat, Sea Fury vs the more complicate Water-cooled Vee's like the Mustang. If the Spiteful had been a little earlier I'm sure we'd have seen a few at Reno these days. Ahh the beauty of simming in order to attempt these 'what if' scenarios.

Jose

I see that the gauntlet has been thrown down for the challenge already, I'm gonna have to get my head under the hood with AirEd and start working on my pylon turns if I'm gonna compete with that Corsair... Wink

Just look at the length of the engine cowling on the front of that thing.... Shocked I don't think a Griffon engine is going to compete in the brute force stakes.

After getting 'bogged down' with too much technical details with another project I figured it was time to whip up some mesh thanks to LH's heads up...

You're on... Grin

I think 'Jelly Beans' will be my modelling material of choice.

A packet of multi-vits later...

Some wing tips a correction of the nose and some garish clothing, this would be sacrilege if it were a 'true' spit, but being as the RAE already saw fit to clamp some laminar flow wings to R.J. Mitchell's baby seems fair game to me... Cheesy

This should be quite a worthwhile exercise as the Seafang is very similar with arrester gear and folding wings, I only have to ditch the wings and make some new ones and alter the wing roots for a Mk24 spitty. Likewise I can ditch the body and venture into the jet age with a Supermarine Attacker which has the same wing and undercarriage.

I'm hoping for a productive year this year as up until now it's mostly been about studying the craft, I'm feeling confident now about putting some of it into practice. Apart from the above and the ongoing Jabby, I've got 4 projects planned in the hope of getting them all done by the end of the year.
