Was there ever a B-29 "Mother ship" conversion?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone ever produce a conversion for the various B-29/B-50 X plane mother ship configurations? This video got me wondering. There are lots of other tasty prototype projects.

Eagles Talon did them I believe Jessica.

I've seen one set in 15 years, good luck.

FSM had an article on scratchbuilding 'Balls 8 '

Best of luck!

Great video, Jessica - thanks for posting.

 

Watch the early B-52 testing (approx. 16:30) and note the apparently uncommanded "gear-up", the quick reaction of the co-pilot and the subsequent sound of metal on runway............... :huh:
