Phoenix Aerospace, aka. In which I don't know what I'm doing.

Post by AdmiralKew » Tue Nov 29, 2016 1:10 am

After the Harpy, I got it in my head to make a sea-landable cargo SSTO that should be also accessible to regular airports that can service 747s and A380s.

Image
I cranked out a basic shape for the fuselage.

Image
Image
Fiddled with it a bit more.

Image
Got to detailing.

Image
And then started making the engines. Pic was from an earlier try, before I settled on something hexagonal.

Image
What am I doing? I don't know. Something Vulcan-ish for the engines maybe?

At least half of the intended gameplay won't even work in YS anyway, since it's supposed to be an SSTO. :cry:
