    I must build a naval bomber, too. Seriously, I should really build one.
    Well, off to the workbench I guess :)

    Btw, I like this.

    Very cool! The past few days haven't been good for original, nice-looking builds, but yours breaks the drought. I can imagine, though, that Heinkel would have had a nightmare of a time trying to incorporate those props into the booms that way...I can see the Allied news headlines: "Nazi torpedo bomber's tail separates in flight...take that Adolf!"

    Sick dude. I love how this is so well thought out for a naval bomber - something the Germans never really had.

    I recommend you setup a genuine torpedo sighting system for this. The torpedoes are super slow - but if you setup a system and say 'release the torpedo while approaching ship at its side, at a distance of 1 mile, 400m height at correct speed' and then attach an indicator on the gunsight... You'd be able to hit it every time you setup an attack run.
