    Default Boeing XC-105 Cargo

    On 6th May 1943 the US Army converted a XB-15 for cargo use, the XC-105.
    Well a fictional company in England got hold of it and this is what happened lol.
    She is a big monster but she flies nice.

    It has the general lines and proportions of a B-17. Was it a derivative or did most Boeing planes of that time just look similar? -- Bob

    Hi Bob, yes it does have a similar look.

    I later tried to fill in the nose cone windows to make them look solid, I got the glass darker but still see through, I am not that familiar with working on glass in textures, so if anyone knows how if it's possible please say.
