WIP F4B-4
« on: July 28, 2021, 09:04:52 AM »

Am I obsessed with yellow wings?

Maybe. I intend to fill another important gap in US Naval aviation.
Before the F-4 Phantom II there was the F4B by Boeing, the mainstay of the carrier fighter force in the first half of the 1930s, before Grumman took it all over. Coming to a flattop near you.

There is a P-12 version by Dimon, that needs to be navalized a bit.
I want to Americanize the stand in cockpit and clean up the tube gun sight. Thanks to Whistler I know how now.

I'll do a single mission for it when it comes out.

Now that sounds like an incentive to get this finished :)

Bombs added:



funny fact, the F4B was used as an intermediate in actual VB bomber squadrons!

I love this plane, hope someone will make the skins of the various squadrons.
Please, replace the 100lb Army bombs with the 100lb_GP_Mk1_Mod2 (the Navy 100lb bomb of the period)
