MASSIVE THANKS @CoolPeach FOR THE LANDING GEAR!!!

Here it is, a bit late, but my 100 follower special, the F8F-1B Bearcat with Douglas Mk. 1 gunpods! It's painted in a fictional WW2 livery and took me quite a while to build (about 3 weeks) so as usual, if you enjoy, please leave an upvote and if you really love it, maybe a spotlight?

Controls:
VTOL: Flaps
TRIM: Trim

Have fun!

    @EpicPigster1 oh ok, do they actually fire? Or is it just a regular gun on a pod? (By the way, it wasn't a question to your specific plane, it was to the F8F in general.)

    @shipster I wanted to give at least one of my planes the optional Douglas gunpod. This plane just happened to be the one :)

    @EpicPigster1 ah great! Actually I'd like some feedback on my newest design. See how you'd improve it and such, I'd love it to have actually handmade landing gear I Also struggle with rudder design a little. Here! Take a look. Ta! Blohm-Voss-Bv-P-170-Three-Engine-Bomber-Exp

    @EpicPigster1 no problem! I've just started using self made cockpits and all that crap on my designs, I've only been building for a week or so but this is amazing! Hope I get this good one day you've definitely given me some pointers and tips.
