Title: Supermarine Type 224
Post by: Adamo on October 20, 2018, 06:41:24 PM
Supermarine Type 224

The Supermarine Type 224 was an inverted gull-wing monoplane fighter aircraft designed by R.J. Mitchell at Supermarine in response to Air Ministry Specification F.7/30, which sought a fighter for introduction to succeed the Gloster Gauntlet. It was powered by the Rolls-Royce Goshawk engine, which used an experimental evaporative cooling system, and problems with this system, combined with its disappointing performance, led to it being rejected, a contract for production aircraft eventually going to the Gloster Gladiator. It is nevertheless notable because R.J. Mitchell learnt lessons from its failure that were to contribute greatly to his success with the Supermarine Spitfire. Wikipedia

This is J R Lucariny FS 2004 Supermarine Type 224 model so I make no claim to building or ownership of this. I merely adapted it for use in IL-2 by baseing it on SAS~CirX's Spitfire Vb Tropical which is available here: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,1615.0.html

I've added the skin folder with a skin to start with and I will be posting a template in that section as well
 
I am again asking that this "NOT" be used in anyone else's youtube videos as I plan to make my own. Thanks.

I tinkered with a dedicated flightmodel, taking into account the little data I could find on the web...
If anyone wants to tell me what they think, go ahead.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/xzh0ps5lxp3l9if/Supermarine224_FM.zip

I made the landing gear fixed in the FM.
I get to altitude ~ 4600m in ~ 7 minutes (maybe a bit better than the original)
Tops out at ~ 370 km/h there. (quite close to what I found)

VP, used the new FM in my DBW1938 (and below).  It works fine.  I like the revisions.  Thanx and cheers

Thanks again everyone  :)

 I've added the new FM by SAS~vampire_pilot to the first post and no fears A1_Phoenix. There's plenty of trousers to go around. ;)

This is a little bump of this aircraft's forum, but it's nice this aircraft has been made to fly in our simulator... granted this aircraft was a definite failure but it's a widely forgotten predecessor of the Spitfire which was an evolution of this poor design... but you can see where R.J Mitchell was going even in the early 30's...

If you turn the engine overheat settings off she is a pleasure to fly...
