Auto Credit Based on SimpleFlow's B-36

Hey everyone! After about a month of work, it finally is here!

This was once the word’s largest aircraft!
It is pretty much built 1:1

I hope you enjoy this mammoth aircraft! It is pretty fun to fly!


Instructions:

AG:1= Dual bomb bay
AG:2= Navigation lights
AG:3= Landing and takeoff lights
Landing Gear= Fold out 8x20 mm turrets
Vtol= Flaps
Trim= Trim

Historical information:

The Convair B-36 "Peacemaker" was a strategic bomber built by Convair and operated solely by the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1949 to 1959. The B-36 is the largest mass-produced piston-engined aircraft ever built. It had the longest wingspan of any combat aircraft ever built, at 230 ft (70.1 m). The B-36 was the first bomber capable of delivering any of the nuclear weapons in the U.S. arsenal from inside its four bomb bays without aircraft modifications. With a range of 10,000 mi (16,000 km) and a maximum payload of 87,200 lb (39,600 kg), the B-36 was capable of intercontinental flight without refuelling.

Entering service in 1948, the B-36 was the primary nuclear weapons delivery vehicle of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) until it was replaced by the jet-powered Boeing B-52 Stratofortress beginning in 1955. All but five examples were scrapped.

Ps; this was built on Android but uploaded on OSX for better screenshots.

Enjoy!

    The problem abou this plane in real life is that the jet/prop combination did not work as well as they had planned. When the jets would turn on, the plane would get too fast and overspeed, and break the props, then causing a loss in power, resulting in a crash. I went to the South Dakota Air and Space Museum, and the one of the founders of the museum was killed in a B-36 crash. Just thought I'd let ya know.

    @SimpleFlow - Yes, it loads well on the iPhone 7 but crashes when attempting to run. Not sure why; it is a new phone for me. I should point out that Andrew has an idea on his whiteboard to allow us to create a box in design time that would allow all parts in that box to have part collisions turned off. This should significantly reduce lag on massive builds.

    @WalrusAircraft
    Thank you so much! And yes it was long to build but I built it in sections, fuselage and wings, cockpit, tail, and jet engines. All built separately to reduce lag. At the end i just “subassemblied” them together. But you say you cant run it on your iPhone 7? I got one and it can run about everything on this site. Very powerful. Thank you very much again!
