Flying always fascinated me.
For the design of the plane I wanted to have something similar to the Devastator from the game Crimson Skies. Pictures!
I took a screenshot from the flitetest video and worked it with gimp to have a rough idea of how it will look, I inverted the colors because it’s more badass and gave some room for weathering the plane.
So that’s it for the design, now for the work!
After the first few attempts I crashed the nose quite badly so I had to do some repair. I figured that fixing some parts here and there could be done in a more decorative way so first I repaired the damaged nose with some aluminium foil, which gave it a though burned paint look.
