With the WW1 fighters, I want to recreate all the important fighters from the arms race that occured. New fighters were developed constantly, and a technology advanced at such a rate that a new type would be obsolete wihin a few months.

The order of appearance of some of the major planes (subject to change!):


1914

Morane Salnier L (Fr) - 1st ever plane intended to shoot machine guns
Pfalz A.lb (De)
RAF FE.6 (GB)

1915

Fokker E.III (De) - Fokker Scourge
Nieuport 11 (Fr, GB)
RAF B.E.2 (GB)
Airco De Havilland D.H.2 (GB)
RAF FR-2d (GB)
Vickers F.B.5 (GB)
Morane Salnier N (Fr)

1916

RAF FE.8 (GB)
Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter (GB)
Sopwith Pup (GB)
Sopwith Triplane (GB)
Nieuport 17 (Fr)
Albatros D.III (De) - Bloody April
Spad S.VII (Fr, GB, US)
Fokker D.IV (De)

1917

Bristol F.2b (GB)
RAF S.E.5a (GB)
Sopwith Camel (GB)
Nieuport 24 (Fr)
Nieuport 27 (Fr)
Nieuport 28 (Fr, US)
Spad XIII (Fr, GB, US)
Fokker Dr.I (De)
Pfalz D.III (De)

1918

Fokker D.VII (De)
Sopwith Snipe (GB)
Junkers D.1 (De)

Added the ME 262 Shwalbe (Swallow), the world's first operational jet fighter.

I intended to record the process of doing the graphics & adding it via the Storm Clouds resource editor, but the video file got corrupted & I lost most of it :( Never mind, I'll do another one next weekend hopefully.

Added the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, iconic USAAF fighter of WW2.

I also have a timelapse video of me creating this plane.



I'll be adding a blog post about this process by the weekend hopefully.

Well, its been over a year since I updated this topic, but I have not been sitting still. Planes are still being drawn, they come in bursts when I'm not really feeling like coding. I've tried to concentrate on WW1 planes, but I accidentally drew some early British & German WW2 planes, and some 60's & 70s jets too.

After technical problems with the gallery on this website, I decided to present the images in a new format. All planes are to scale (except for the Zeppelin, which is just too big to fit on a screen), and are at the scale of 1 pixel = 10cm in real life.

Without further ado, here are the plane sheets:
