"Very simple"? - Well, the model certainly isn't!

 

Thanks for these pics of Heinemanns wonder bomber.

Nice job as usual!
I know you guys are very very very busy to finish BOK on time, so thanks for this headsup!

hey this is an awesome video.  I wonder if we could actually apply these wartime training clips to our practice in Sim.  There are quite a few and very informative.

The landing sequence from rear of aircraft gives me happy thoughts for the future!

Whats all that room behind the cockpit for?

Looks great!

 

A reflector sight with that size and location can make any Soviet fighter pilot envious.

The only plane with the P39 to not spin on taxing, I will miss this!

I too would love these kinds of vid in game.

 

Some kind of machinima perhaps?

 

The cockpit looks great!

Appreciate all the FM work.

 

Hope that gets through to the team. It was a big leap forwards.

The Russians used to do barrel rolls over the runway.

So much for forbidden acrobatics.

barrel rolls can be 1g manoeuvres. Stretches the definition of non aerobatic though. Didn't a test pilot do one in a 707?

Yes he did. I also saw him in an interview later demonstrate why it was safe by putting a cup of coffee on the dash of the light prop twin he was flying (eg a Cessna 330-340 or similar) then performing a barrel roll without any coffee spilling.

I did build two or three models of the A20 or the Boston in my 1/72 or 1/48 modelling period but I have never seen this level of detail in any of them.

Great job from the development team, thanks!

The immortal Bob Hoover. Best stick and rudder pilot that ever lived. He also escaped German captivity by steeling a FW 190 and flying it to safety.
