Interesting project. The sole remaining CBY-3 is on outdoor display at the New England Air Museum here in Windsor Locks. The lifting body design is intriguing.http://www.neam.org/inventory/airprofile.asp?ID=14

Hi John,

This doesn't even seem like a challenge after your Kalinin.

Interesting subject.

Thanks all.
skycope: It looks like that machine is going to rot outside at the museum.

It really is a shame to see old airframes left outside to the elements like that. I hope there are plans for a restoration in the future...

Looking forward to this. I started drawing up plans for one a couple years ago and just haven't gotten around to it.

John,
Great subject for the build. I've been considering the UB-14 for this FunBuild. I may just have to join in also if time permits...

Nice to see innovative (or weird) ideas brought to life as models. My favourite theme.

France had a similar aircraft a generation earlier - the three engined Dyle et Bacalan DB70 built by a shpyard at Bordeaux.

Here is a news story we produced a few years back.

Also; I just received word that NEAM, the museum that has had the CBY-3 is next on it's restoration list after the A-26 Invader is finished. This spring I believe.

There is still hope.

Watching with great interest.

Thanks everyone for the support. I didn't think there would be that much interest in this subject.
rc capo: I don't know about the conspiracy, but a good story anyway.

I have been doing a little design work, but I have several more days to go. (Depending on honey-do list.)

Hey 1905Flyer3,
Here is a 3d model of the UB-14 in it's "Red Devil" paint scheme that might inspire you.

Enjoy!

John, I to,have been working on plans/drawings for a 48" CBY-3. I've got a ways to go before I can start a build. It will be balsa/foam build with electric power. It is must build aircraft for me.
I,m looking forward to your build. good luck and fair winds.
