    @RamboJutter Would you mind if I use your front gear from this build? If not, I would not take offense:-)

    @ChiChiWerx well ive re-scaled it and sorted the airbrakes as you mentioned but either my wings are much too wide or the fus is too short and neither look out of proportion. ive scaled it so the wingspan is ok but the fus is 10ft short.... now extending the fus looks aweful. I'll wait and see who else comes up with ideas though.

    @ChiChiWerx thanks for the comments, I can't believe I built it nts... oops. I'll rescale it and add selectable ab (the lab's deploy lower than the wheels on the real one, must have lead to some interesting landings.

    Make it 1:1 scale, but that would require a rebuild. Add selectable AB (one you can turn on and off). That’s what I would do if I were you...

    @Blue0Bull Thanks, I'm glad you like them, I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Yeah I don't tend to get many votes for some reason.

    I was just browsing through some of your stuff and holy crap dude, You make awesome creations but in a way you seem very 'under-rated'. I honestly think more people should check out yourself.

    @RamboJutter on just the crusader or your overall build style? coz for the firs of these, idk much about the plane apart from it being full of beauty. And the other: well it says it in the previous comment :) although, engine spull time is quite fast on all sp engines (that can be increased by increasing max input)
