    @chancey21 @Mod all you have to do is make a plane such as @Jundroo ‘s p-51, with a bit more detail

    You should check out my SBD-3 Dauntless. Not only can it land on USS Tiny, but it fits the time period as well. Obviously I'm not submitting it for the challenge, but I figured you'd like it.
