B-17G Flying Fortress

Happy Veteran's Day!

In celebration of our great veterans, I created this WWII B-17G bomber. It is one of my favorite WWII planes and I wanted to make a small version of it. The color scheme is based on the "Fuddy Duddy" B-17G. This replica is a very accurate replica. It has the wings in the right place, a correct fuselage shape, and even GUNS! Yes! GUNS!

Sorry for the sluggish controls, I wanted it to "feel" like a real bomber. I had to add a jet engine as the main power because the propellers failed me. Also, don't activate group 1. Just trust me. It activates the rotation on the hidden VTOL Jet.
