    @Revan13152 Fine with me. However you have to add more. You can't just remove one part and call it good. You could redesign the life boat if you want to or add lettering.

    @GINGER01 it is ok, I am a mobile user, so I will probably get the mod on my computer, remove the mods, and re upload it (do not worry u will get full cred) ;)

    @MechWARRIOR57 well I put the mod on the plane because it helped with stabilizing the plane. However when I fixed the stabilizing problem I forgot to take the mod off.

    @Derpinator there is a link to the unmodded version in the description if you want that instead. However if you want this mod go on to the creator page of this mod. Information would understand the required mod section above. Once.you find the creator of the mod page look for the mod on his page then read about it and follow their instructions to install the mod.

    @Blitzkrieg I'm not sure why your so angry at me. I have done nothing wrong. First and foremost I don't use any xml. All I do is nudge. That is the big reason my planes are so detailed. I am very keen to detail. Secondly I've put months of work into this plane so you telling me that I didn't put any time or effort hurts me. As well I like to model my planes after actual planes. That's why there is a replica tab. I build replicas. Also you can see I am an android user. All my planes are built on Android I do not play simpleplanes on steam. You probably have more experience than me. You've been here longer. However I've been here since 1.2. I've seen this game evolve and community grow. I have no control over who upvotes my planes or whether it gets featured or not. This is the first time one of my planes has been featured. I have no control over how popular my plane will be. I just post it and let the community decide if they like it. I have absolutely no control over this.

    @Blitzkrieg you can XML mod on Android (not sure about iOS) and even with XML It takes ALOT of skill to place parts as you are only working with X,Y,Z coordinates
