The kind of aircraft presented in this package, the XB-35 Flying Wing, is something that I’ve always had a lot of time for. They remind me of some of the best toys I had as a child, and represent a rather fresh kind of aircraft that I haven’t quite managed to fly to death so far! However, the thing that impressed me the most about this aircraft was the massive attention to detail that it managed to bring to the table.
It really made a big difference to the overall design and style, making it nice and simple to get used to; sometimes a design can be a bit awkward to look at and get used to but this really did a good job of making each and every part of the model nice and clear. Given that it was made for software that is nearly a decade old, too, and you have to really give credit to the quality of the design by Kazunori Ito.
This makes a massive difference to just how realistic everything can feel in general, and plays a big part in making sure that you can truly enjoy the unique nature of the Flying Wing aircraft.
Given that these were some of the first bombers to look like this, I was always really intrigued by this aircraft – it really did set the trend, making it very easy to put the whole thing together and bring the entire package into one specific look and feel. It also makes sure that you can really get used to the makeup and style of the aircraft, so it was something I was immediately drawn to.
The big thing about this aircraft, though, is the fact that it set a precedent despite the fact it was never used for the reason that it was built in the first place. It never served during the Second World War thanks to a vibration issue with the rotating propeller, and therefore it was not used in any kind of battle arena.
This particular aircraft itself never made it to mass production and therefore became a bit of a relic – until the invention of the YB-49 and YRB-49. These really set the tone for this kind of aircraft to come onto the market and make a big difference, and for that reason I alone I was quite inspired to see how this thing would fly.
Therefore, when I first trend the mod I had done so with some very high expectations! It made it much easier to get to grips with the aircraft given that I already had such an epic outcome in my mind, and when I first started flying this I was blown away at how well they had done to create the feeling and effect of the real thing. I spent a lot of time reading about this aircraft prior to flying it and now I’m more interested than ever- it provides a true snapshot of what this would have been like had it been released when it was supposed to be.
