YB-40 gunship

470 Braden  11 months ago
Auto Credit Based on Zott's Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress V0.0

i recently learned of this plane's existence while looking into if a B-17 gunship existed for building one off a real model kit. i then made a conversion to make that kit a YB-40. i did not make the airframe and i don't remember who did (sorry but all credit goes to you) today i was making my b-17 collection in game and i wanted a yb-40 and didnt find one so i just converted this one, also i saw someone made a post a few days ago about wanting one *to you; here you go! enjoy! ;)

    @Braden what a logical modification. though i think they could have fitted one more gun turret on it. smack dab in the middle of where the bomb bay was... noting says America then copious amounts of guns. X'D
