NOTES:
I’ve been working on this project ever since late april, I would’ve gotten this project done by the beginning of july, but I was busy this summer; But now it’s finally here! I vowed to never, ever upload a P-51. EVER. That still stands, kind of. This is borderline legal, but I really wanted to make an F-82 so here it is, in all of its glory.
INFO (from wikipedia):
The North American F-82 Twin Mustang is the last American piston-engine fighter ordered into production by the United States Air Force. Based on the P-51 Mustang, the F-82 was originally designed as a long-range escort fighter in World War II. The war ended well before the first production units were operational.
In the postwar era, Strategic Air Command used the planes as a long-range escort fighter. Radar-equipped F-82s were used extensively by the Air Defense Command as replacements for the Northrop P-61 Black Widow as all-weather day/night interceptors. During the Korean War, Japan-based F-82s were among the first USAF aircraft to operate over Korea. The first three North Korean aircraft destroyed by U.S. forces were shot down by F-82s, the first being a North-Korean Yak-11 downed over Gimpo Airfield by the USAF 68th Fighter Squadron.
CONTROLS: (It’s a lot but bare with me)

    @Mostly You DID say you would never make a P-51 Mustang so I am confused. Sorry.

    @TimeTraveler Look at the bottom of the description, you will find the gun pods, fuel tanks, rockets, etc. to attach to your plane.

    Please add the freedom dispenser pod at the bottom of it, (reference WT) and then, it will be perfect... but! It’s still deserves an upvote definitely

    @CursedFlames Check the modifications at the bottom of the description. That's why there are little black pylons under the wings.

    @AceOfSpade technically it’s a whole new aircraft. The f-82 only shared about two and a half components with the p-51.

    Turned out well, but it needs a gunpod for more firepower!
