Saurian Version Arwing's Model

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone :)

I'm currently making airplane (arwing) model for Flight Simulator X.

So far, my model is "just good enough"... Although it still needs "much" tweaking...

I heard that the Saurian Version of Arwing has landing gears, since it was separated from Great Fox for a "long-enough" time..

I was hoping that someone could take a picture of the arwing's landing gears, since I haven't play SF Adventure....

Thanks :D

p/s: I don't know if this's the right thread to post... :(

Found a video of it. But the quality is quite bad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1B8_itv5TA

As you can see, the landing gear extends hydraulic out of the Arwing in three different areas. One at the front, and one out of the bottom of each G-Diffuser (The blue-painted things between the main hull and the wings.)

When in flight, these are retracted such that they follow the countours of the Arwing, and are thus hard to spot.

This thread is in as right a place as it can be, and I'll let it stay here unless no other staff members have any better suggestions.

Best of luck! And keep us updated on the progress.

I think the arwing model I have for gmod is a assault one....but if you'd like I'll take pictures of it.

The SF Adventures Arwing looks very similar to the X-wing from Star Wars, as far as forward fuselage and nose gear goes. here's a pic from a website which I believe belongs to one of the guys who modeled the SFAd Arwing. It shows the landing gear.

What are you basing the flight model off of? If you need a beta tester, just give me a shout.

That does look alot like  a xwing with the landing gear coming from the lower  g-diffusers and the front one coming from the front nose section.

That SF Adventures Arwing sure looks a lot like a rounded version of the N64 Arwing

I donno, the SF64 Arwing had a much shorter, more angular nose, more prominent vertical fairings over the G-Diffusers, and a much more pronounced wing. Although the later one is much more rounded, reflecting the higher polygon count available on the gamecube compared to the N64.

It's just me, but I like to think of it as an entirely different bird.

Thought I read somewhere that was because Slippy tweaked it a little, taking it away from a pure fighter role, giving it a larger cargo compartment, longer reach and stuff that would be more benefitial to the team as jobs got scarcer and further between.

Makes sense. Like a long range, multirole version. It seems all fighters start out small, then get larger for those very reasons.
