Birth of a Radio Controlled B-29 Superfortress by GrummanCat Birth of a Radio Controlled B-29 Superfortress by GrummanCat
Good thing Volume 2 of the comic is wrapping up soon, because the radio controlled airplanes are ALREADY MOVING IN! :stare:

Here is the latest, a 96-inch Boeing B-29 Superfortress. 8 feet of wingspan! Will have retractable landing gear, 4 beautiful brushless motors and working bomb bay!

The B-29 has long been one of my 2 favorite airplanes of all time, yet I have not yet made a serious effort to build one in R/C. I already have my eyes on the Electric Festival in January for this thing. Can't freakin' wait!

well just keep it solid then paint the windows. ESC would look good if located in the cowling of the engine. in the expense of having a long battery wire.
I do find scale building takes very long. I know a guy who take several days on a foam build but the results are fantastic.

Wow! Good luck; I can't imagine how difficult this must be. :)

How are you going to make the cockpit and itīs windows?
Reply

But ordinarily, I would cut the windows out with a hot wire foam cutter. Then carve out the cockpit area with a combination of knives, saw blades and sand paper. The window frames would be redone with card paper and probably no glass. Straight through air flow is nice for cooling batteries and electronics in flight.

I have an idea for the windows, paint the whole plain in an aluminium finish, then mask every window and paint them black. I know it can be something hard to do, but it will be better than nothing. Also, I want to see the next step of this project.

Unfortunately, the cockpit will be solid foam since a brick-sized pack of batteries are going to be right in there above the nose gear and its mechanism. I prefer to avoid dead weight in the nose such as lead or metal plates. Since batteries deliver power, I prefer to use them as the nose weight.
