A.61 Regional Air 80

I started this one from the inside out, it helped me plan ahead and keep my part count lower, and by doing the floor plan first I think it helps her look a little more smoothed together. I took special attention the cockpit and and doors.
I made her an overhead panel that does some fun stuff! It has the engine start up switch, and the safety releases are right by the throttle. It also has the lights control, and the switch(s) to close all the doors and hatches.
Keep an eye on the flaps and slats, they produce a lot of drag and are easy to forget.
She lands rather smooth... set throttle to 40%, full flaps and slats and just ease her down.

    @Boeing777x its definitely a step in the right direction, and this one was so much fun to work on i sorta overlooked a few small details before publishing, but I couldn't resist haha. So glad you like it!

    Wow. I really like how you managed to keep the part count lower on this bird than with the others yet make it look more realistic at the same time.
