Auto Credit Based on temporaryaccount's Boeing B-17G Nine-O-Nine

Edit: Cheers for the support, I cannot believe how much you guys like this.

After much blood, sweat and tears, (and a toasty iPad) I'm really proud to present the Boeing B-17G "Nine-O-Nine". She features a custom cockpit, interior, classic "Nine-O-Nine" livery (missing some bomb tallies, but I wasn't gonna put all 140 on there), gunner positions and much more. This is probably my best build so far, considering the new 1.7 tools for iOS.

Please enjoy this beaut, and if you didn't, tell me why.
Mobile Version: (Coming Soon)

Massive thanks to @temporaryaccount for being my advisor/XML modder during this build, couldn't thank him more. He played a big part in getting this together. Also thanks to @EpicPigster1 for helping out too.

    My great-uncle died in one of these. He didn't jump out; he stayed, shooting at the Nazis' fighters. Lest we forget.

    Thank you, I had to get some external help regarding XML but this was mostly accomplished using the Part Transform tool in 1.7 update. @ACMECo1940
