Crimson Skies Brigand

Hello everyone, here is my recent creation of Crimson Skies Brigand.

(For those who doesn't know what "crimson skies" is - it is a great flying simulator for PC and first generation of xbox console)

Here are some teasing photos (I'll upload more after proper resizing)

Blades must be like this, but I had no money to buy a set of parts =(

Ask questions, I'd be glad to answer!

Awesome! How many cylinders does that engine have? Is it an X engine? I can't wait for more! :moar:

Thanks!

It's a V18

I was trying to recreate Pratt&Whitney R800 radial engine, but I didn't have some parts, so I decided to make a "sport" version. The X engine didn't fit with all the mechanical parts.

There will be a video tomorrow or a day after tomorrow of all mechanics and functions.

More photos uploading... :grin:

My only request.....don't keep us waiting for the video too long! :laugh::wink:

Absolutely awesome!

I love these big airplane MOCs, and this is truly unique!

I too can't wait to see the video!

Oh, and the propellers look great in white! :thumbup::wink:

I'm not familiar with the game, but it's always great to see an aviation related mod! This is great! I love all the functions.

OK. I'm not looking any more. What part is the nose cone?

Available in multiple colors

The nose cone was one of the main concerns alongside with blades. But I found a descent part to play the role. If you want to get one - keep in mind it bends pretty easy. It's not rock solid.

This plane was the best plane once you had enough tokens to upgrade it to 6 guns on the wings. :devil: Looks nice!
