Looking for Consolidated B-24 Kit or Plans


Hi,

I am looking for a B-24 Kit or plans that I can convert into electric. I am looking for a wing span of 70 to 80 inches. I have scratch built a 68 inch B-24, and now would like to go bigger with more detail. Any suggestions?

Jack Stafford models used to produce a B-24 kit for glow power, but it's a bit bigger than the size you want. (90" span)Unfortunately, they are no longer in production. But, every now and again, you can run across a kit for sale on eBay or from the ads in RC Report or RC Modeler.

Daves aircraft works makes a b-24 sloper kit that might fit your needs......

Here's the B-24 from Daves Aircraft Works. I built it as a sloper but don't have time to drive 3 hrs to use it. Will electrify at some point. It is a short kit. Plans and wing cores. Goes together well and is decent scale.

Thanks all. The Dave's aircraft looks like it may work. I also found a set of plans on Palmer Plans web site. It's a little big, but maybe.

There's also an HVP kit out there. Zb at Esprit models used to carry it IIRC. Might check with him if he can still get it.

I may be wrong on this one but I thought that someone was still doing the Stafford kits.

I'll check with Esprit. The Stafford kit is the one that I originally planed to build. If anyone knows who is creating the kits, let me know.
Thanks again
