Auto Credit Based on BaconAircraft's Convair CV-580

Updated version!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my first attempt at a circular hollow fuselage! Seriously. I can't even believe it myself. I'm so excited to upload this!!!
Features:
- 1:1 Scale! (Most of my planes are 1.36:1 scale lol.)
- A fully refurbished interior and cockpit, (cockpit is fully functioning)
- Realistic flight charicteristics and performance
- An Awesome Air Chathams livery
- Fully functioning flaps which also slide back and forth
- Working lights and stuff (Act 1 to activate landing lights and runway lights)
The part count is rather high because of the detail of the seats, and the lack of knowledge with this kind of fusalarge. Credit to BaconAircraft for helping with the aerofoil and the suspention. Enjoy!

    @TheSleepingInsomniac Yeah that is an issue. BaconAircraft gave it custom gear with suspension right before I was gonna upload, and I didn't test it with landing. There is a link to an updated version at the start of the descripton which has longer landing gear if you want.

    Don't know if I'm shitty at landing but it seems the props like to break?

    Well I don’t think I have anything from the past 2 years with less than 100 parts, never mind 100 parts and custom landing gear. Sorry. :/ @AviownCorp
