Boeing B-17-G Flying Fortress Aluminum Overcast

Finally, after 2 to 3 months, and many crashes in the designer, she is finished, featuring a full, extremely detailed cockpit, full interior, (mostly), and much more. This was made in 1.11 inspired by WIZARD2017's B-29. I've also been waiting to build this ever since I was making the F-14D which has been cancelled a while back. I haven't updated to 1.12 while making this even when 1.12 already was released. Also, because of reasons, I could have saved a lot of parts without panelling the fuselage but I wanted to do it to get a realistic damage model. This is definitely my best build yet.

  • Damage Model

  • Semi-Realistic Engine Startups

  • Camera Aiming Turrets

  • Working Norden Bombsight

  • Working Nav Map

  • Full Interior (not exactly)

  • Working Bailout Doors

  • Somewhat Accurate Nose Art

  • If you want a truly immersive experience, be sure to follow the instructions precisely when starting the engines.
  • I made a huge mistake with the tail. It's supposed to be more wider, and I hope I can update it in the future.
  • the switch beside the "lock control surfaces” is the switch to lock the tail wheel, make sure you to not touch the yaw in order to not be locked sideways or else you'll be spinning
  • the overhead panel is for the lights
  • all the turrets are camera controlled except for the top and ball turrets, they are auto aimed

  • @WIZARD2017 for teaching me how to make the damage model and other stuff. He played a huge part in this build.
  • @PlaneFlightX for testing and recording footage for me to see how the B-17G acts, and for taking some screenshots.
  • @SnoWFLakE0s for the bombsight coding.
  • @Sparky6004 for providing me with images for things I couldn't find on google.
  • @Scratch for lending me his camera aiming system.
  • @Phox for testing a few things.

Also huge thanks to the Funky Trees Lab for helping me with some of the funky codes. I would suggest to join their discord server, they are a very helpful community for some funky trees and other stuff.

    @LEDOverCharge My PC specs are these. I'm the one who tested it and flew it, at a measly 30 FPS.

    Please note: there is no teaser video for this aircraft at the moment as @PlaneFlightX's computer was lagging so there might be a delay to the teaser video

    Also all tags have been requested

    Also here is the gallery if you wanna see it clicky

    @MrShenanigansSP this is a phenomenal replica of the Aluminum overcast, I don't know if it's still there, but I look a tour and a flight on it in Oxford Connecticut, it was a true joy. I was 6 at the time, I would oh so love to she her again, I turned your plane into a cross section [ no wing or elevators] so I can save it without my phone blowing up!

    You sacrificed your phone to build this. You deserve my upvote comrade

    I must ask, what are your pc specs? 6k is just insanity, also amazing work I love the emphasis in the damage model.

    I LOVE the aluminum overcast, I even took a tour in it as it was on an airstrip in I think Oxford CT when I was around like 6, this particular plane was a place in my heart

    Ok, giant question not particularly related to the plane, how do you put pics in the description? I have a model jet engine that I want to demonstrate through pictures in its description but I can't figure out how to
