The above response from sferrin would be appropriate if the google searches actually found the images in question.

I checked my B-29 Warbirdtech, it has a 3 view drawing of the YB-29 but not XB-29.

From B-29 Detail & Scale Pt 1. Has turrets, however.

The Air Force Museum website datasheet page on the XB-29 has three photos of the XB-29s:

On one of the photos you can see that there is a plug or filler plate where the turret should be.

I don't think you are going to find a drawing of the XB-29 that doesn't show turrets, the simplest thing to do would
be to take a B-29 drawing and erase the turrets.

U.S. Bombers by Lloyd S. Jones has XB-39 drawings.

Jones U.S.Fighters and U.S. Bombers are commonly available
on the used book market (often available for as little as five dollars US).
While neither is perfect or the be-all-end-all in terms of accuracy they are useful
general references.

Or find a drawing of Enola Gay or Bock's Car or maybe a post WWII B-29. A KB-29 would do except for the K mods, maybe.

Probably already irrelevant, however
The first prototype of the Boeing XB-29 (without turrets) with motor Wright R-3350-13 Cyclone, with three-blade propeller Hamilton Standard.
from Czech magazine Aero PK Revue # 34

Not what you asked for but cool anyway.
I agree and thank you very much for posting it.

Off-topic: in my opinion a nice source of inspiration for what-iff artists. Don't know why but that B-29 look very "European Front" to me.

When I compared with B-29 and RENZAN, I surprised very much that B-29's MTOW is twice as RENZAN.

B-29/RENZAN
Engine:R3350 2,200HP in take off/Homare 24 Ru engine 2,000HP in take off (both engine turbo charged)
Wing area:161.27m2/112m2
Wing span:43.1m/32.54m
over all length:30.2m/22.94m
MTOW:61.2ton/32.15ton
Max speed:574km/h/593km/h
Range:5,200km with 4.5ton bomb/3,945~7,463km
Honestly speaking,I don't want to think about B-29, but it was a really outstanding plane.

Must be the early-on olive drab paint scheme that was not used on full production B-29s.
