Thanks guys, so I made this and wrote the blurb before I went off to university/college and for whatever reason thought I'd let it stew a bit before I posted it. The build isn't perfect but I'm pretty tied up so I don't see myself tinkering much with it anytime soon. Ergo here's another plane, might try a different camera angle too if I ever retake it.

Snatch Raider N. 45 of the Penal Air Corps

When the Snatch Raider fighter-bomber was first introduced airmen disliked it for its underwhelming flight characteristics, and  it was widely proclaimed a deathtrap for the way its rivets sheared off under fire.

The Snatch Raider (and several of its dissenting pilots) were transferred to the Penal Air Corps for duties attacking flak emplacements and aerodromes. To convert the standard plane for penal use a locked cockpit cover was added to prevent pilots jumping out, with explosive charges and an antennae for remote detonation placed just behind the cockpit to ensure orders were followed to the letter.

Yes it's blurry but I only managed one take before my batteries died. Forgive me for my sins. idc

This is absolutely wonderful! I must ask did you base this off the soviet flying submarine because I'm getting that vibe. Great build lovely as usual continue the great work!

Needless to say, this subplane is pretty neat.

Haha it wasn't actually inspired by that thing although with the slightly obscured cockpit I can see a connection. Having said that I was trying for something that looked more like naval architecture than aeronautical engineering, and I tried to copy some vibes from the soviet Il2 Sturmovik (designed for defending the motherland, whether the pilot wants to or not).

It's like these would fit perfectly in the Adventurers theme world! The van with Johnny Thunder and Dr.Kilroy helped a bit, ahah.

Giving a fine example of originality and quality photography here, Ikensall. Kudos  :ftw:
