I'll admit it, it's way too dark ok I can see that now but I'm sure it isn't too much of a hassle to change it after downloading

So I could be one of those guys who gives you an informational on the planes history and other things about it, but I am lazy and knowing me it wouldn't come out very well even if I tried,

This started as what i thought would be a quick finish up of an old wip I posted a couple months ago, but then i had to redo the body of the plane so it was in proportion then after making the wings i decided to make them fold and i redid those, then i decided i wanted the fuselage to move with the control surface i redid them again, open detailed cockpit, text, emblems etc.
And at this point it isn't right to call it the same plane,

CONTROLS

LAUNCH ROCKET to deploy the smoke trail credit to @Minecraftpoweer for the smoke pod

VTOL to unfold the wings

1 to launch the ejector seat and parachute (I call the chair Jeff, its also a recliner i don't know why)

2 deploys the hook

The plane fly's but suffers from some wobble and isn't as maneuverable as I'd hoped, this is because I made this with the mindset that i would fix the flying after it was built which I couldn't properly do because to increase performance all the wings would have to be dismantled or the fuselage roll would need to be made smaller and at this point these were covered in decals, well lesson learned and next time I try hopefully i can create a plane with higher performance,
here's hoping this one does better than the old W.I.P

    If I'm going to be honest I actually had no idea custom landing gear was a big thing, last time I played Fuselage wings and custom cockpits were the one thing you had to do @CursedFlames

    It looks amazing, though it's pretty rare to see a build this detailed use the game's landing gear!
