  1. Believe it or not, I found this while looking for photos of A.W. Whitleys with Kilfrost de-icing paste! I don't have any use for this, but remembered some of you were either contemplating building one or were converting a Sunderland into one, IIRC. It is a very detailed technical description of all systems, some diagrams, and a list of the civil registrations carried by the class. I hope somebody can use this information. It does make for very interesting reading! Mike http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=
  2. I'm not a WW1 modeler, per se, but I found this website while looking for propeller information on a WW2 subject, and I thought it might be of interest to WW1 and between the wars modelers. I hope it hasn't been posted before. I was torn between this forum and the interwar forum, but think it is more appropriate here. (Julien or Mike- if you think it is more suited to the other forum, please feel free to move it!) Mike http://www.woodenpropeller.com/
  3. I just stumbled upon this engine that I never knew existed, while looking for XB-42 details, and it was a very interesting article, so I am posting a link to it below for any of you that might also find it of interest. A little too late in its development, I guess, but would certainly have been a very effective powerplant for a twin or four-engined aircraft, like say a PM-1 Mercator, PBM-5, C-82 B-29, or C-97.

  4. I was watching an old movie titled The Beginning or the End, about the dropping of the atomic bombs in 1945, and it had very nice actual footage and studio-made segments on the atomic bombs dropped by the 509th Composite Group. Very nice classic B-29 footage! It reminded me that all of the Silverplate B-29's were Martin-built at their Omaha, NE plant, and that Col. Paul Tibbets picked his mount personally when he visited to check on the progress of the modifications to the aircraft. I have attached a link to specs, photos, and history of the Silverplate B-29's.The 74th anniversary of the missions just passed, August 6 and August 9, 1945. Amazing that both of the B-29's that dropped atomic bombs were preserved and that they were both flown to their respective museums from storage. I hope the link will be of interest. (You could tell the studio-created footage, as the props on the B-29's they used to represent Enola Gay and The Great Artiste were Hamilton Standard instead of the correct Curtiss-Electric reversible props fitted to the Silverplate B-29's.)

  5. I found this website today, and I think many of you will find it very interesting and helpful for modeling projects. It lists an extensive collection of photos by the name applied to the aircraft- you can search by letter, A to Z; there are also photos of other variants of the Liberator, including the Privateer. You can spend hours and not see them all, but if you know the name applied to a B-24/PB4Y/C-87 you would like to build, you can look for it here. Enjoy! Mike http://www.b24bestweb.com/
  6. I just found this website by accident- isn't that always the way it happens? It has scale drawings, technical description, specs, and construction details for all CAC-designed aircraft. I would think this would be useful to BM'ers planning Aussie modeling projects. I hope this hasn't been posted before- if so, Mike- you can remove it.
