NeuroSplash @yann-journeaux

Welch9o4 @welch9o4

I love the design everything about it. It's got any unique simple exterior, with a vast and greatly designed interior. Definitely will play with. WCO approved 👍👍👍👍

NeuroSplash @yann-journeaux

The NTC Enginneers thanks all the WCO Engineers for the approvment !

GaWdSmAcKjR @gawdsmackjr

Awesome use of the letter block underscore, and the fact that you added actually working seat belts is even cooler, also it like a hybrid between the HALO 1 Lifeboat and a pelican.

NeuroSplash @yann-journeaux

Thx Engineer !
