    Visuals 9.5 (It has almost everything. White belly, logos, text, gold ring on tail, swastikas etc. Fuselage shape is just beautiful. Turrets look impressive. -0.5 for dark green color, not ideal for a sea-plane. Maybe a petrol green or something more grey would look better)
    Construction 9.75 (Impressive visual details that follow fuselage shape. Complex hull shape, excellent sculpting. Beautiful custom cockpit. Cockpit view is spectacular, you can see the entire custom interior and nose turret, but is almost useless for flying. Better use a camera for that and put cockpit part somewhere with a better outside view. Custom wings with custom controls. -0.25p for using unnecessary parts on some areas, there are tricks to save parts while visuals are not affected)
    Accuracy 9 Blueprint match very well on plane shape and wings geometry, only problem is with engines size and position.
    Scale is almost perfect. Length/wingspan/height (72, 87,19) is similar to the real thing (71.9, 88.7,18.1). Loaded Weight is close too 31.5 vs 35.
    Max Speed is good. Around 210-220 at 15,000ft
    Functionality 8.5 (A little nose drop and no TRIM to fix it -0.5. Flaps are just decorative -0.5. +0.5 for excellent YAW. No auto-roll issues, it takes off and lands on water easily. Weapons work, cockpit/interior is functional.)
    Impression 10 (great description, superb project etc... still you get the 10 for the binocular on the dashboard. Genius)

    Score 46.75 (of 50)

    I'll think about it @Flameslinger, I think it works if i remove the cockpit or just some instruments.
