    Hi guys,

    I work for Radical 3D in Venice, CA. Some of you may be familiar with our TV show "Dogfights".

    I need to build the cockpit (front pressurised compartment) for a B-29. I've found plenty of reference photos but no plans or dimensions.

    Planning to go out to March Field ARB next week to take a look at their B-29, but in the meantime I'm stuck.

    Could anyone supply me with any basic info?

    If, for example, I had the basic width and height of the pilot and co-pilots instrument panels, I could extrapolate the other dimensions I need...

    Many thanks for taking a moment to read this and for any help anyone can offer.

    Simon

    Your best bet is to go out to March. I don't know if Boeing could help you, you might contact someone at Witcita.

    Where you might get a good drawing that would be used to build an RC model is Cleveland Models. This might be a start.

    They (March Field) are busy prepping for a big event this weekend, so I guess I'll have to hold off until next week.

    No luck at Cleveland, they have only a small sport scale B-29.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have to learn some patience. Or maybe I'll just PLAY patience.

    Cheers,

    Simon
