    @Flyer24 I have thought about making it with a tail landing gear instead of a nose landing gear but then I said "nah I'll purpose it for carrier take off and landing"

    Nice one, I like it. (It looks like if the P-38's engines were replaced with a single jet engine because the US missed the 38 in the cold war even. lol)

    Now to talk about flight performance:
    Its pretty good weight distribution finds a good balance between maneuverability and stability. However, lucky not to have too much drag and heating caused by it in SimplePlanes, the concrete runway would grind that engine off very quickly. Move the rear gears backwards a bit so that the plane doesn't "sit down" when it's on ground. It will make takeoffs a lot safer.
