    @Dumbpilot1234 I think mostly its because I have been around from the start and have experimented a lot... If you check my early builds there are not so many downloads...

    Hi! So I've been looking lately for a P-47 Thunderbolt and Found Some nice Detailed but Not Flyable Models so I decided that I'd come to the #1 Builder in the game and ask.....
    Can you make me a Detailed, Flyable, P-47 Thunderbolt? @SpiritusRaptor

    could you build the quinjet from avengers 1 please. the blades that make it vtol is in the wings. when it goes to heli mode, the wings open and the blades show up. when it goes to plane mode, the blade close. you can see this in captain america 2 during captain america was trying to take back a shield ship.

    2nd note: mainly you got my vote for adding the pitot tube (which was one of many Northrop shortfalls in design). The handling is decent within the SW sim boundaries provided by Jundroo SP. Sim speed is close to the real "clearance area" article tested. By accident, I suppose...... good job!

    Great plane! I noticed one problem though.. As you slowly use up fuel, it becomes less and les stable, until it becomes uncontrollable at about 75%. Must be the fuel tank positioning or something.
