B-29 wind tunnel test model.

Caption: "Boeing B-29 Super Fortress (1940)"

I'm wondering if this might be the Model 341. If so, it qualifies as an 'unbuilt project'.

Unfortunately, the nose is cut off in the sideview. But, to my eyes, the rear fuselage looks rather short for a B-29.

The front view shows three-blade propellers. But, of course, three-blade props also be applicable to the Model 345/XB-29 as well as a Model 341.
