- The Idea:
Starting a Kickstarter to fund Busou Shinkis being added into X-Plane 10+. The idea is to add Arnval Mk II, Strarf MK. II, Asuka, and the Vic Viper girls into the game. Not all of them, but extras wouldn't hurt if people were add more. I doubt people will support the Kickstarter but wouldn't hurt to play around with the idea of adding Busou Shinkis into a X-Planes with combat.
- X-Plane - Custom Aircrafts:

we have even certified a few of these aircraft for use with the FAA-certified version of X-Plane. As you can imagine, this work is priced accordingly and is not inexpensive. Typical costs range from $3,500 to $10,000 per file.
- Nas's Idea - Expanded:
Having the Shinkis change into their robot or combat form when unleashing hell and staying in their flying form to do nothing.
- A'K's Idea - Expanded:
Keeping the Busou Shinkis at 1/1 scale (15 cm). More of a short-range "aircraft" than a full-sized passenger type aircraft. Shinki would stay their full-size in the world. Would fit it better than an awkward incomplete Anime mod. Think R/C planes or similar.
- Why the money?
X-Plane developers would go out of their way to produce a high-quality plane model if you would fund them around $5000 for whatever plane model you need, plus any extras if they go past it. They would make the plane model fit the game as best as they would.
I'm just leaving this here for you guys to play with this. Do as you wish with this topic. If we're serious we could pop open a kickstarter. What Shinki reminds you of a plane more and which one do you want the most?
-> Liberty (Red Vic Viper) for me with Arnval Mk. II as a second option
