Question
Tu-95 plans?

Hi guys,
Having finished my B-17 project, I'm looking for the next adventure. Tu-95 would a real neat project, but after a search all I found was the Don Smith 200+ in. monster plans (too impractical - and expensive), and references to a plan in a british Flying Scale Models magazine.

Do you know of any plans for a "Bear" in the 95-110" wingspan range? If not, does someone have a set of plans from Flying Scale Models that they'd be willing to part with.

All help is highly appreciated.
Lubo

Thanks for the link, Huggie9999. I may pick up those plans if nothing else comes up, and blow them up 10-15%.

Kostya, you can get the details on my B-17 on this thread: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=746277

I have not built a B-29 or a B-36. Frankly, I don't much care for the B-29. The B-36 is an interesting subject, but I'd prefer a Tu-95 (or -142).

Although MAP is selling the "Bear" plans they were not published in FSM. Maybe AMI?

I just received a set of Tu-95 plans from Flying Scale Models courtesy of Dick Oglesbee, who sent them to me almost overnight! I just wanted to say "Thanks! to him publicly - it's great guys like that who make the Ezone such a fun place! Now I have a winter project to tackle. If there's interest I may start a construction thread on the "Bear"...
Cheers,
Doc

Can't find B-36 on Flying Scale Models site. Please help.
Are any other designs of B-29 other than Don Smith's and Jim Young?

Thank you,
Kostya

A really nice plan for an electric B-36 is that done by John Considine and published via Traplet. Originally for 6 geared 400s it would be ideally suited to some of the smaller outrunners. What is best is that it not only looks good on the ground but right when airborne.

I know about it. And I contacted him about it.
I'm looking for more information about this plan. John only directed me to Traplet...
How it is constructed, materials, etc.
Thank you,
Kostya

My simplified hand-launched TU95. Four Sp400/7.2 with 3s lipos.

Pre-flight check always includes outer motors rpm.
