    @SodiumChloride If I figure out how to make larger landing gear I may try to make the Short Stirling and perhaps have a go at a turboprop version of the B-36. I want to try to make a turboprop biplane and triplane as well.

    @LightMindedJedi currently I also am running out of ideas, so i got nothing

    @SodiumChloride the tail on the cr42 was so heavy that combined with too much lift being generated by the wings it was doing a constant vertical loop the loop on my computer. My next project is going to be converting a B-17 to have turboprop engines. Do you have any build suggestions/requests in case I run out of ideas? I may try to make a monoplane conversion of the Gloster Gladiator.

    I dont want my planes to be accurate in the flying (such as turn)

    due to simple planes physics dont expect flying to be 100% accurate, but I have no clue what you were talking about the Cr 42 having a few issues, literally just tested it again and I see nothing

    @SodiumChloride I made the wings produce more lift and altered the center of gravity at least in part by substantially increasing the fuel capacity, though I did not alter anything else. If I were you, I would make tweaks on the planes while building until they fly to satisfaction before uploading (I am not saying you did a poor job, I am just giving some general advice based on experience). I am not entirely sure that the flying is 100% accurate to the real thing but it is good enough. Have you checked out my cunard x shaped wing jet fighter yet? (Yes, I could not come up with a good name so I named it based on its appearance when viewed from the top). It has a high roll rate and flies reasonably well despite the unorthodox design. the wings are in the back half and split into two going outward, and the swept forward and swept back wing panels have their own ailerons, thus increasing available aileron area while keeping the span somewhat down. I may try to make some more historic airplanes but have no idea on how to make larger retractable gear (as in larger than what the game provides even with mods)
