B-17 Loon Launcher
« on: June 20, 2018, 12:17:10 am »
Whilst on holiday in the USA earlier this month, I visited the USAAF Museum at Wendover in Utah. The Museum is on the site of the USAAF's largest Bomber training base, and its where the B-29 crews for the Atomic bomb missions trained and has the only remaining bomb pit used to load the large bombs on the B-29's. In a short video about the base there is a glimpse of a B-17 carrying what looked like a V-1, and a bit of research reveals the following photos

Cool.  I have an urge to build something similar.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

If an He-111 could launch one it should have been a doddle for a B-17.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
