Excellent example of Witchcraft. I have seen her and been inside her on numerous ovations and you nailed the shaping.

Good work. The only thing I don't like is the wrong shape of the wings but considering the inside mecanism it's understandable.

Well, if ever you here of it (the Witchcraft) coming to your area, you should go see it! It is really cool! I even got to go inside of it! I can't wait to see the diorama you're working on! :)

Quoting BrickBuilder7622 . Wow! That is really cool the way you made the decals! Did you get to go inside of it (the Witchcraft)?
I actually found the pictures on the internet. I've never even seen the real Witchcraft but I needed a B-24 for a diorama that I'm building and the colors fit with the lego color palette perfectly.

Quoting BrickBuilder7622 . This is incredibly realistic! I was fortunate enough to see the real plane in person, and I gotta tell you, THIS IS AMAZING!!! Great job! I really like how you made the props spin! And the decals... were they from a model kit? 5/5 job! :)
Thank you. The decals are actually screen shots of the nose art from the actual Witchcraft and photoshopped until they color matched the correct shade of dark bley and printed onto sticker paperů

very nice work yet again,the 3 piece flat tech plate might be better for the props,only thing i would change is the nose from the cockpit looks slightly long but maybe its the way the photo makes it look,everyone building planes will now be rethinking how to motorize them now.

Wow! Nice job all around. The shaping and coloring are excellent, and the power functions are great bonus feature.

Great bomber! Excellent shape, and a well detailed cockpit. The pic with all of the props spinning is sweet too.

Very nicely conceived and executed work. I especially like the details in the cockpit. Does it by chance also drop bombs?

Quoting Henrik Jensen Great Liberator! Colorscheme very true to the original. Very smooth and nice shaped fuselage. But I agree with Gabor Pauler, your propellers should be reconsidered. And just one more thing, where is the belly gun-turret?
Thank you! The belly gun is retracted... ;). Actually it would be a 4x4 clear cylinder hemisphere but was "lost in the mail" according to a bricklink seller. It's quite the expensive part so I'm waiting to grab another when I find a seller that has a bunch of things I need. I feel the same way about the propellers but the 9 diameter prop is too small and looks horrible. The smaller technic propeller with adding black 1x4 tiles with a yellow tip looks even worse in my opinion. I had a couple of other alternatives using clips with tiles (turning them slightly so they don't look flat) but they couldn't handle the RPM's of flight mode. My solution may be the same way that I had done with my u-boat propellers is to use an actual RC prop. But when on display at conventions; it will be up in the air so you won't really see the shape of them as they will be turned on but what have currently does look really good when revved up.

Quoting Gabor Pauler Very cool SNOT airframe. I would use more gradual stepping of fairing elements at the wing trailing edge. Propellers should be reconsidered to be more aerodynamic. Are the turrets positionable? Overall, very promising work.
Thank you! I would have loved to have better stepping on the wing edge. I had an angle of the long curved slopes (which was a requirement in my opinion to get the Davis wing look) but it would left a gap that needs to be covered. It looked worse than the current stepping so I decided against it. Other ideas also caused problems for landing gear as well as for the axels going to the motors and structural integrity. I agree with the props. Lego has very few alternatives. Flat tiles look worse in my opinion. Angled tiles with clips can't handle the RPM. The lego 9 diameter prop is too small.

It's an expensive part so I'll wait until I find another seller with something else I need. I'm not happy with props either but lego gives me few alternatives that look better. I may go the same route that I did with my u-boat propeller and use an actual RC prop that is the right size.

Awesome plane! The power function just sells it. It's very smooth, and I really like the SNOT in the cockpit. I can't imagine the time it took to find all these pretty rare pieces... THanks for posting!

An amazing design, hats off! The smooth hull design and the cockpit ate the best parts, the front MG nest and propellers following it. Don't get me wrong, everything is superbly built, but the cockpit left me speechless with the control and seat design.

I like the cockpit and the astrodome. I don't think I've seen someone make a LEGO plane with all spinning props before.
