Auto Credit Based on poopatron71's 1935 Bomber challenge (CLOSED)

My Entry for the "1935 Bomber" Challenge, powered by a pair of tuned Wright Cyclone engines producing 850hp each, and with a crew of 4, this medium bomber can haul 8 250lb Bombs at a top speed of 207MPH at 10,000ft. the turrets are positioned to cover as much area as possible, and one operator can switch between two guns within the same turret (this keeps the crew number, and therefore the weight, low).VTOL UP to open the bombay doors

    @Mostly Cheers man! :D this is actually the first challenge I've competed in, and I hope to compete more once the deadline passes so I can see the results. this is also the first plane I've made to get more than 7 upvotes (the last one to get that high was a halo 4 Pelican gunship)

    Out of all of the other competing bombers, this is definitely my favorite one. Absolutely amazing job!

    @F4f879 :) pretty much immediately after uploading this one I upgraded it with and elongated bomb-bay and more powerful engines, turrets are more modern on the "Production version" too. If I can wait until the end of the challenge to post it I will, But I don't think I have the patience for that hahaha
