I started this some time ago, and finally got back to working seriously on it Saturday. I have the AMT/ERTL p*****c kits of the XB-35 and YB-49, and I always wanted to do a YRB-49 conversion. Well, prices being what they are, I didn't want to cut up a kit I couldn't replace anymore, so I decided to try it in paper. Since it will be a simple enough "conversion" to do this way, I've also decided to just go ahead and do all 3 in paper. First up is the YRB-49. With a wingspan of about 17.25" (438.15mm). the model sale out to just over 1/120 scale. I'll have to resize it to 1/100 or /144 once the design is done. The design/build is at about 70% at this point (at this scale, anyway). I also plan on doing a 1/72 version at some point as well. (Well, maybe, where would I put it?) Sorry for the poor pix, I need a bigger area to take them in. The model as it stands still needs the canopy, engine fairings and exhaust for the 4 in the wing, and the radar/photo pod on the bottom. The underwing engines forward ends are not correct yet, either. It's also lacking most of the panel lines. Once I had enough parts drawn, I couldn't wait to start building, and this is the result. Hope you like it, I do, so far anyway... Scott K.
