[AIRCRAFT] XB-42 Mixmaster

[mod=XB-42 Mixmaster][previmg]http://k.minus.com/jI3GjzVWRD69s.png[/previmg]
[moddesc=http://min.us/mEE4kKL59]Here's another of my favourite planes: the XB-42 Mixmaster. It was designed as a bomber capable of the B-29's range without its size or cost, powered by two V-12 engines using in-line contra-rotating props for aerodynamic efficiency.

The .DNM:
The four aft-firing guns were supposed to emerge from opening panels in the wings, but I'm going for overall effect rather than exact detail. Likewise I'm only assuming the position of the forward-facing guns, "either side of the forward fuselage" which don't appear on any of the prototypes.
I did borrow the pilot from a P-51 (from CEP and / or YS Major), and the propeller section from a B-17 (originally by Masa-At). If you're going to steal, steal from the best.

The .DAT:
I took all the flight data from Wikipedia and tweaked all the other variables to make it flyable. This model may be more manoeuvrable than the real thing. Who knows?

NOTE: Nose it up GENTLY at 110 knots. Any more than 5 degrees rotation will kill it.

Feel free to repaint or redistribute this model, so long as I get credit for the original.

Yeah... once you're on a roll, there's nothing else for it.
