Brigand1 by 1Wyrmshadow1 Brigand1 by 1Wyrmshadow1
My own version of the Brigand from Crimson Skies.
There wasn't a model available online, so I made my own.

You sir, have done a job on this that I cannot adequately express my amazement. From where I'm sitting, it looks like you combined elements of the TBD Devastator and the F4U Corsair, and is that a Mk. XIII Torpedo I spy under her fuselage?

Torpedo, yes. Other than that you are incorrect. This is the plane in question.

There were no models available, so I made one myself as best I could.

Oh I know about the Fairchild F6II Brigand, I use 'em myself. :D I'm talking spefically how you built this one. I've never really noticed those attributes to that ol' Red Skull Legion plane.

I'm not that great at modeling from scratch, so I try to use as many spare parts as possible. The front landing gear I got from a Corsair, along with the radiator inlets on the wing root. Propeller blades from a Zero. 20mm cannon from a P-61 Black Widow but I added the air cool vents from a M1919 .30 cal Browning and just resized. The rear turret from a B-24 nose. Main wings from a B-25 and heavily modified. The canopy from a Me-109 and also heavily modified. The rest I had to fill in using a very grainy top view picture and a lot of 3/4 views that were not helpful when measuring parts. I also did my best to measure it properly from the data on size online. It doesn't match 100% but it's pretty close.

Love the idea of the B-24 type tail turret.

Good eye. That's exactly where I got the turret from.

Man, that is SO COOL! I was on the design team for Crimson Skies, and I know the guy who designed the Brigand would LOVE this treatment!
