B-29 plans

Anybody know where to find plans for a B-29? Looking for my next foam project. Would like to have profiles, wing templates and motor/wing angles. Thanks.

All I can find in my links is this: http://corsair.flugmodellbau.de/file...an/Bauplan.htm Look about a third of the way down the page.

It's not very good but maybe it'll give you a starting point.

Kitbasher,

Your link works but the download link on the page does not. Does anyone have a copy of these plans they can email me?

There's one in the Traplet plans range - start at www.traplet.com

It used pretty cheap motors (a lot of them, naturally!) but was all wood - shouldn't be too hard to foam-ify though. Had retracts too. Only published last year, IIRC

It's real big - up around 100" span

I looked on the Traplet web site for b-29 plans, I looked thru all the plans listed and couldn't find the b-29. Does any one know the plan number.

B-29 "Plans"

Hi Brad!

If you're willing to do some scratch-type building, you can probably get some 'stuff' from the Boeing Company Archives Office; they're located in Bellevue, Washington. You can probably get their address via the Boeing web site; if not, let me know and I'll send it along to you.

Good luck,

David

I have the B-36 plans from traplet and I didn't even realize it was the same as a B-29 if you removed the motors from the rear.

Jim

After a little more studying of the plans, The wing looks to join differently then the B-29.

Sorry guys about the missing link @ http://hem.passagen.se/jvmatern/b29/b29.htm .
It should now work again.

I've just uploaded a short video for those who want to see it fly.
Video sequence .
(A working codec for the movie can be downloaded at http://www.divx.com/divx/index.php).

There is a thread somewhere here on RCG by Jim Young about a balso covered foam B-29. He sold cores and plans, now only plans, but someone will custom cut the cores. Check the thread.

Duh, the thread shows up at the bottom of the page as a related topic thread:

That's my B-36 plan and apart from the fuse being circular nothing is the same as a B-29. I built a B-29 before I built the '36.. - John.

Ok, I see. Now I believe that there are no other elcetric B-29s than John's and Jim Young's.
John, can you post some pictures of what that plans look like. I need be sure before getting them from Traplet..
Thank you,
Kostya
Another question. Are any glow designs other than Don Smith's?
