Auto Credit Based on mikoyanster's WW II Master Challenge - STATUS: In forthcoming!!

Entrant into Mikoyanster's WWII Master Challenge. The P-83 is a fictional design step in between the Lockheed P-38 Lightning and P-80 Shooting Star. It was named the Thagomizer after the four nose mounted machine guns resembling the four defensive spikes found on the tail of the stegasaurus... and because it sounded mean. Standard controls. I did not include missiles. Not the most maneuverable, but it was fun to build. Entrant to compete for the allies and in any form of the competition.

    @CRJ900Pilot thank you. I posted it just as I finished it. Surprised there's more visibility midday vs. evening. Oh well, no big deal.

    @melojam yep, needed a two digit number, it seemed like an OK idea.

    If I were you post it 7 hours earlier than when you did, that way more people can see it
