Here's a general idea of how the internal structure of this plane will look.

I'm in the middle of a move to Charelston S.C. so I hope to have photos of the begining of construction soon when I get sorted out and unpacked.

I tried using a printer & blowing up the scale but I can never get the scale right, so I'm going back to the tried & true plan making method.

Hmmmm. I'm seriously tempted to build a matching B-9 to the same specs. That'd be cool. Sister B-9s flying in different locations. Subscribed.

that'd be cool the more the merrier, I think only 9-10 real B-9's where built. the army air corps chose the martin b-10 instead.

Demon- Have you noticed that the mean height of the fuselage is greater behind the wing than at, say, the cockpit? It's like 5.5 inches high around the cockpit, but 6.5 inches high around the waist. Weird.

Now that I look at the pictures again, the difference doesn't seem that much. I think that 3-view is slightly in error.
