  1. I have the Fiddlersgreen Convair B36, does anybody know in which scale this is?
    They say it has a 40" wing span.
    Cheers, Billy

    Hi Billy,

    By my recokonig it is around 1:78 (70100/900 all in mm).

    The large or regular(?) FG B52 is the same sort of range and its big... The Peacemaker will be impressive and blot out the sun!

    The FG B-36 model sheet says WSAM = 120%. FG's WSAM scale = 1:60, and the 120% means you would have to enlarge it by that percentage to print it at 1:60. So, doing some simple math (60 X 1.2 = 72), the scale of the B-36 is 1:72.

  4. Thanks..
    I have a little plan for it: I want to combine the B36 with Kampfliegers XF85. so I had to know how much I have to scale it down.
    I know this combination never flew in reality, the tests were made with a B29, but the XF85 was intended to fit in the B36 bombbay.
    I have some good photo's of the trapeze, but any information is welcome.
    Cheers, Billy
  5. Does anybody know wher I can find drawing or pictures of the inside of the bombbay of the B36?
    Cheers, Billy
