The Futurama Planet Express[WIP]

This is build log number 1 of 3, you find the others here:
Build log Number 2
Build log number 3


Once again its that time of the (year? month? when I actually post?) to start on another big project, the last one being the Monster-buss which ended up pretty well

Anyway this time round I've started working on the planet express ship from Futurama, I made one of these way back when i first started on the site but its safe too say it wasn't exactly the greatest

Back then i was limited a lot by in game restrictions(fuselage could only go up to 5, no circular corners etc.) and general lack of experience.

Below you can see some screenshots of the wip

Working turret, can aim up down and spin 180degrees


Now for the Plan

The idea is to get this fairly show accurate, this means doing so without changing any part of the appearance even for the sake of flight
for example in my old version where i had to greatly modify the wings.

This means getting this to fly will be incredibly difficult due to it having literally no front wings, at the same time its supposed to be capable of vertical takeoffs and landings.

So the idea of I have is to basically take all the skill out of making this thing fly and instead XML mod all the parts of the ship to have zero drag and weight(essentially murdering my pointer finger from clicking), from there I'll make another small VTOL plane and put it inside of the ship with the help of fine-tuner, this would mean that the ship is essentially a cover that goes on top of the real aircraft.
I don't know any thoughts?

also feel free to suggest any Easter eggs I should hide on the ship, because you bet I'm going to do something!

    @Carbonfox1 parts of the bottom are home for the sales of to The cargo Bay, not all of it is because of clipping from other parts of the fuselage

    @spefyjerbf yeah I'm thinking of going more traditional VTOL, as in I still want the shop to be able to room etc.
    but I'll make sure to look into your creations

    VTOL flight isn’t too hard if you have a good enough gyro. Feel free to dissect any “2D VTOL Systems”.
