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.
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 !

Designation Systems / Japanese Naval Radar Systems
« Last post by Tzoli on Today at 07:54:39 am »
I've recently found this Japanese site about the various radars designed and used by Japan, mostly the Navy:
http://www17.big.or.jp/~father/aab/kikirui/navy_radar.html#list
It includes both photos and drawings for some of these systems. Which are very rare!

But I wish to ask if there are any info on the sizes of these radars? Dimensions I am looking particularly for example the Type 14 and 32 ones and so on.
Can anybody help me?

You might want to add the following:

268: probably a Max Holst design

It seemed to be there was an un-popular series for Nord,began with number 200,there
was unknown lightweight fighter Project also in this sequence.

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

My favorite American bomber of the Second World War ...  ;)

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 ...
