Here's the solution everyone keep the off topic to a minimum. Easy fix.

I can see where the off topic stuff annoys some. I will do my best to refrain from encouraging it.


Edit: That being said, I'm about to introduce another off topic topic.

It's interesting to see what they've done, might be some details of their design approach that the large scale builders here can apply to their planes. Thats a heck of a lot of machine for only 140lbs of weight.
It's just a C-123 with turbines, right?

The C123 and C123A were XCG120 assault gliders with engines. Radial engine with props for the C123 and B47 pods with J47 engines for the C123A

Sorry all,
I have been going back and forth to the west coast working on some cool projects. 3 red eyes in a week and a half can add up, and I am beat. I don't travel now until next Tuesday so i hope to get back to my wing and cowlings. Wow has this thread gone nuts, but that is just the nature of this beast I guess. In the last week I have flown 14,500 miles on Delta so work has me slammed. The Portland to Atlanta red eye last night really took a bite out of me. I guess I need to keep it all in perspective, I am very lucky I am so busy...... The alternative would mean no money for my toys.

So..... let me get a full night sleep and just maybe I will have something to post later tomorrow.

Rock On!!!

I fully understand that is interesting to cover all topics of aviation and modelling in general. I am interested in that as well. So why don't we start a general Aviation thread everyone can join in while waiting for news from the B-36.

To me this B-36 Thread (actually now a little part of it) is a major source for information and inspiration for my model building and design. But it gotten literally impossible to separate the wheat from the chaff. Too bad.

Cheers Alexander
Yes.... what he said.

Thanks buddy

I've been guilty of the off topic post myself; but no longer. I've followed this thread for two years, and I don't want it stopping because DAG gets pee'd off with those he's posting for......

LOL, I love this post, but a bit off topic is ok as long as it is about a B-36.

I know it is off topic; after all those miles, I hope you can get some bennies from all that travel (frequent flier miles). Be nice to be able to justify all that travel with a nice vacation for the family someplace and have Delta pay the freight......

Hi Rick,
I started to scale all my B-36 DWG's by 50% and just got side tracked. I am trying to put it all into a few drawings instead of 20. I promise as soon as I get just a little slow time I will get them scaled a put on a CD. Don't remember but do you have CAD?

Thanks, Damon

Those miles pay for my family to travel on vacations. About 125k a year.

Thanks, Dag

Good on you Dag.....at least after running as hard as you have to pay the freight you and your family can reap some of the rewards (miles/vactation).

No CAD at this time: however it is something that I'd like to try.
Maybe the B-36 will be the excuse I need to get started with it.

Let me see how to re-scale them to fit on my 42" plotter, then I will look at how many pages that will take. I can plot 42" by about 16'.

Thanks, Dag

Dag:
Hey that would be fantastic.
"16 feet" of course you need to be able to plot something that long: or how else would you print off what you need for your mammoth scale models.
I thought giant scale started with an 80" span
OH: did you get a chance to look up where you purchased the 3 blade super props from. I got a responce that they don't make 3 blade props. With a sugestion to go for Menz.
