Basic Description

After accidently ordering the KSC’s engineers to make aeroplane wings only 1/3 the required size for their 747-100, the KSC Big-Wigs decided that rather than just throwing them away, they would use them to build a 747-100 at 1/3 scale! Basically I decided to actually put the comically small aeroplane wings in this game to some good use. The result is an adorably tiny 747 that I think ended up being pretty good both functionally and aestheticaly. It was a fun way to burn 4 hours in any case. Make sure to control the craft from the HECS 2 probecore inside the fuselage.

Known/Development Issues

-I initially started building this craft to use .625m Goliath replicas, which actually looked really good and absoutely adorable, but they turned out to be way too small unfortunately.

-Side Note

Images like the one below really make me wish I had a powerful enough computer to play this game with the maximum graphics settings all the time, instead of the minimum resolution and low render-quality I’m usually stuck with in a desperate yet futile attempt to stay above 1 fps. Let’s just say there’s a reason why my next large cargo SSTO is taking so long to develop.
