    An interesting build; you build as many land vehicles as aircraft, yet the flight model is pretty good. There are many builders here who should have made their flight models as convincing, yet didn’t, even though their part counts are four times as many as what you’ve used here. I took off with 30% power, as I do when I evaluate builds, to see what the actually rotate and takeoff speeds are...here it’s around 120 KIAS rotate with a 135 KIAS takeoff speed. Acceleration at full throttle is a bit too swift, as it is for all SP builds with too much power or multipliers on the engine...I know the J50 isn’t as shmexy as the big BFE, but it would help acceleration, lower fuel consumption and allow a more realistic fuel load. Currently, your 15,000 lb. jet has nearly 11,000 lbs. of fuel. It does a full turn at 500 KIAS in around 11.5 seconds, which is probably 11 Gs...more than what it should, and it certainly has excess wing area, probably twice as much, but maneuverability is plausible as planes are always designed with a maneuverability reserve and the pilot would simply look at the G meter and pull so as to maximize performance without over G-ing the airframe or blacking out. It lands really nicely, final approach is comfortably flown at 130 KIAS, which is realistic and everything is well controlled. I’d Spotlight this but you have more points than I do...however, I’ll upvote a creation with a good flight model as this one a hundred times before upvoting an 1,800 part jet that won’t rotate and leave the ground. Nice insignia, BTW. Nice work!
