Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress

7,849 GINGER01  2.1 years ago

Here it is. The B-17G FLYING FORTRESS

I have put so much time and effort into this build. I hope you do enjoy this plane as much as I have. This plane is very stable from my testing. As well the cockpit is a makeshift bombsite. (It's not accurate). Also there are cameras at each turret and gun spot.

If you have any questions, comments, or constructive criticism, I would love to hear it.

INSTRUCTIONS
AG 1 Top turret.
AG 2 Chin turret.
AG 3 Ball turret.
AG 4 Rear Guns.
AG 5 Waist Guns
AG 6 Landing lights.
Thanks and enjoy.

    @hellcatz yes the waist guns work. Press AG 5 and VTOL slider. I mess up the description. The waist guns move in an up and down motion.

    @hellcatz also the radio operator and the cheek guns in front are not supposed to work. I didn't want to add the the part count. Its all ready big. Those positions to me are the least used guns so I didn't make them rotate.

    @hellcatz they all worked when I uploaded it. Try redownloading the plane. I made sure everything worked before I uploaded it. Make sure you follow the instructions. Press the AG groups and use the VTOL slider for the movement of the turrets.
