Auto Credit Based on RamboJutter's Shorts Hartlepool MkI 2.2

My best flying boat yet.

Based on a fictional development of the Short Sunderland with jet technology late war.

Ag1 retracts wing tips, Ag2 for flaps, Ag3 for extending bomb bays (use before releasing any bombs please =) ), Ag4-6 for releasing bombs in batches (bombs are retarding so they can be released at low level high speed and not damage the plane on exploding), Ag7 enables turrets which are operated with roll and pitch and should be used in conjunction with Ag8 which disables ailerons and elevator.

Yaw is provided by splitting the ailerons to cause yaw (which works really well). Barring that the camo came out nice and its beutiful to fly with no autoroll and very limited pitch trim needed (speed dependent).

    @Blue0Bull thanks, glad you like my builds, thanks again for the upvotes (I'm enjoying the old flying boat genre at present so may be more to come)

    OK. This would be a great build even without bombs; with functional bombs, it's wow! @RamboJutter

    @Stingray yeah I thought about that and surface mounting under wings but I like the bomb idea as otherwise the fus was a big empty shell. The real Sunderland had depth charges on retractable side racks which gave me the idea

    Very nice! All AG functions work. Suggestion: instead of side-mounted bombs, you could easily install missiles.

    Holy cow this is great. The fact that my phone runs this without lag is also astounding. Wonderful build, as always 👌🏼

    Mmmmmmh... 🤔
    The result of a Sunderland, a Camberra, a Short Sperrin and your Supermarine 300 that had sex together ?
    Interesting... Very interesting...

    @RamboJutter I know. Otherwise I'd have stripped the plane myself. Only way to reduce the lag significantly would be to delete bays, but that would ruin it.

    @EternalDarkness :( I can delete the camo n some other bits but can't reduce part count by much. Only scaled bits are wing panels and a few rotators.

    Nice bomb bays. Unfortunately, my laptop can barely run it.
