Unfortunately I feel it does not change the dynamic quite as much, but you guys be the judge.

Special thanks to @JED for the GBU-12 Bombs
A bit shaky, but they fit nicely, maybe someone can recommend a way to fix that?

    This looks pretty sweet! Good job 👍🏼
    As far as the GBU-12, I have since figured out how to fix the shakiness of the bomb during flight and that is to distribute the weight throughout all the pieces that make up the bomb...but as You can imagine that is tedious work. I plan to make a 2.0 version of the GBU-12 with that in mind (weight distributed throughout the parts of the bomb). Hope that helps to anyone who is wondering.
