Not that long ago there was a B-29 salvage attempt, an aircraft on the ice in Greenland I think.  Ended up completely burned out which was a crying shame.  What a missed opportunity.

It's always funny to compare scale drawings of the same aircraft from the various ages and sources...

Hi !

Thank's to all guys !

I knew these drawings but they are completely wrong  ;D ;D ;D ! That's why I do the mines from pictures and Boeing plans !!! Very modestly, of course   B)

There is many years I began to draw the B-29 ...

That's an aircraft that deserves it. My respect for your enormous effort.

I saw that video - I had the tears welling up in my eyes at the end. Still one of the most frustrating pieces of film I ever saw. Heartbreaking - after all that work they put in. Considering how close the came actually flying the plane. As I said, gut wrenching...

It is sad to cry indeed ! So much spent energy and currency also to finish so brutally !
