[AIRCRAFT] Folland Gnat T1

Post by Dan » Mon Dec 15, 2014 4:32 pm

Folland Gnat T1 Collection
After just 3 weeks work on this model (new record for me!), I present to you the Folland Gnat T1. In this pack I have included most of the the Gnat's Royal Air Force schemes from the present and past. The Folland Gnat T1 was built as a subsonic jet trainer and fighter aircraft for the Royal Air Force. Although It was never used as a fighter in the Royal Air Force, the Folland Gnat T1 trainer variant was extensively used. The Folland Gnat T1 was most commonly known as the aircraft of the Royal Air Force Yellow Jacks and the Red Arrows aerobatic team.

Wow, amazing work. Great to see you back again and even better at modding!
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Beautiful! I know a lot of people have been waiting on these. One question though. Are the pilots supposed to be invisible (stealth?)?

Thank you very much guys for your kind comments I fully appreciate them all. For the pilots I didn't intend on adding any to the model, which is the same as Lordflashearts Hawker Hunters. Though I may return to the Gnat in the new year and add Pilots. I hope you guys have a good Christmas and a happy new year to you all.

Right guys, I've updated the download link. The floating decal issues have now been sorted however, to do this I had to remove the control column animations in order to re-order the DNM tree on DNM viewer. I have also added two RAF Pilots to give the aircraft a more realism as suggested. The download link above has been updated so please download the new version.

Many thanks.

Very, very, very nice aeroplane!

Permission to reduce MANESPD1, add speedbrakes and make slipper tanks jettisonable, for personal use strictly, sir?

The reason I excluded jettisonable fuel tanks is to simplify the animations. Also on the real aircraft, especially the display aircraft, they're always fitted. There are no speed brakes on the Gnat T1 uses it's gear doors when open to slow down as well as the flaps. This is why the gear doors are connected to the landing gear. I am not sure what you mean by adjusting MANESPD1 as myself and Dave have tested the Gnat T1 thoroughly with no real issues with the power settings. If you really must modify it then do it.

Those are really nice Dan! A Gnat model has been long overdue in YS Flight!
