Thanks for your support! I'm glad you like this so much! :)

MOBILE FRIENDLY VERSION HERE: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/HULDsH/B-17F-Memphis-Belle-MOBILE

Detached cockpit version: https://www.simpleplanes.com/a/QL8i9k/B-17F-Memphis-Belle-with-detached-cockpit

My 1:1 scale B-17 "Memphis Belle" with a hugely detailed outside and even a detailed interior. I tried to make this thing as detailed as possible, and it is definitely my best work.

A huge thanks to @Antisphere for his help with the wing design, ailerons, flaps, and numerous other parts of this builds. Check him out, I couldn't have built this without him.
Thanks to @AeroEngineering for his help with the bomb bay doors.

The Memphis Belle was one of the first B-17 United States Army Air Forces heavy bombers to complete 25 combat missions with her crew intact.

INSTRUCTIONS
AG8 + VTOL = flaps
AG1 + VTOL down = Open bomb bay doors
AG2 - 3 = drop bombs

Mobile friendly version coming soon

This is by far my favorite creation, I hope you enjoy!
-John

    @exosuit
    It edits FOV if you copy-paste it in the sp designer. I comment it here so I can find it easier

    This at take me a few days, the turret shape will be a bit different since I need to create them from scratch, and my PC sucks...
