Big Boeing Bombers outrigger wheel question


Recommended Posts



As I can't do any proper plastic modelling, I'm making CAD models for parts I find lacking in a couple of kits I have stored away.

I've found the dimensions of the main wheels for both the B-47 and the B-52, but I can't find the dimensions (diameter and width) for the outrigger wheels.


Can anyone help me please?

Sebastian doing some research for the B-47 ,I found reference from a B-47 build by Darius Aibara on ARC. He used the main wheels from a late model F8F Bearcat for his outriggers. They arrear to also be the correct size and design for the BUFF's outrigger system.
