Boeing B-17 bomber plans, 78" wing span.
These are high resolution TIFF files containing 200 x 200 dots per inch.
4 files will print plans 36" x 61".
B- 52 slope soarer or glider plans. I think the plane could be converted to electric or gas by a skilful builder.... No landing gear is shown..... I have made a reverse right wing and attached it to the left wing sheet.... I just hate trying to build both wings on just one panel, especially when they are tapered and swept too! .... I also left on the ribs, so now you have 2 sets of ribs..... The plans are very large and are fine line, so they will NOT photograph well...
77" wing span. 65" length. 2 large sheets.
Convair B- 36 "Peacemaker"
115" wing span. 86" length. 1/24 scale. Power: 6 Master Airscrew .05 geared electric motors. 2 large sheets. One sheet is over 10ft. long! Not the best of plans (sigh).
HISTORY: An intercontinental bomber, designed during WW II (to bomb Germany from the US in case the UK fell), first flew in 1946 and entered service with Strategic Air Command in 1948. More than 380 B-36s were built up to 1954. Around 1958, it was replaced by the B-52. The B-36 was the backbone of the USA's nuclear deterrent in the 1950s, much to the dismay of the US Navy, which wanted aircraft carriers to do the job. In the days before submarine-borne nukes, B-36s were continuously in the air in order to enable the US to retaliate if the USSR attacked and destroyed ground forces. Flights of over 24 hours were common. The four jets were an after thought and were used during takeoff and for rapid climbs in-flight. Although it was an interim as a bomber and never saw action, it served as a reconnaissance aircraft, flying over China far above the maximum heights of communist fighters. Wingspan: 230 ft. Length: 162 ft. 1 in. Height: 46 ft. 9 in. Weight: 410,000 lbs. loaded Armament: Nuclear bombs, or 86,000 lbs. of conventional bombs; cannon Engines: Six Pratt & Whitney R-4360s (@ 3,800 hp), four General Electric J-47s (@ 5,200 lbs. thrust) Max speed: 435 mph. Range: 10,000 miles (4,000 when heavily loaded)
Did you know the orange was to help rescue locate spy planes?
It is with great pride that I introduce my Hobby Helpers scale Consolidated B-24 Liberator Bomber. This is a builders dream come true.
BIG 69" wing span. 42" length. Power: 2 or 4 - .10 to .20 engines. Very nice Control Line plans. Unfortunately, I only have the article in black and white to include at this time :-( sniff sniff
HISTORY: With over 18,000 aircraft built the Consolidated B-24 Liberator was produced in even greater numbers than the other famous Second World War US bomber, the B-17 Flying Fortress. The Liberator gained a distinguished war record with its operations in the European, Pacific, African and Middle Eastern theaters. One of its main virtues was a long operating range, which led to it being used also for other duties including maritime patrol, antisubmarine work, reconnaissance, tanker, cargo and personnel transport. Winston Churchill used one as his own transport aircraft.

The file will print a plan 36" x 75".
The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was was the first plane to have a grill installed.
