Spad A.2
The Spad A.2 was designed by Louis Bechereau, and first flew in 1915. It had a wingspan of 31 feet, 4 inches, was 23 feet 11 inches long, and 8 feet 8 inches tall. It had a top speed of 95 miles per hour.
About this creation
The Spad A.2 had a nacelle in front of the propeller, with a machine gun on a tubular mounting. Credit to Jeremiah L for the tube mount.

While it gave a great field of fire, it obstructed the view of the pilot.

The landing gear ,was tricky to build, as it needed to support the weight of the nacelle without getting in the propeller's way. I do believe I made the axle with a new design.



"Working" ailerons.

"Working" rudder/elevators.

I give credit to "Q M" Christopher Honkzo6for the strut design.

A better look at the engine.

You can see a bit of the Caproni 42 in the background.

Excellent work, and thank you for giving me credit, although I doubt I was the first to come up with such a concept. It's an unusual plane, and I think you dealt with it extremely well, carry on!
