Hey guys, has Anyone Built or Planned to Build a Zwilling Jet Bomber? i'm talking like 2 B-52's,Vulcans,Etc. just something i was Wondering about and Thought i'd ask. Merry Christmas & thanks for looking. Think this would be a Project to try? Dan

A twinned B-49 would be good, 16 engines, two bomb bays, and goodness knows how many cannon!  :lol:

It would be a B-98 of course...........

Twinned up Canberras or B-47s have a certain appeal to my mind.

What about a pair of B-45 Tornados or Il-28 Beagles? Before nuclear weapons were miniaturised enough for carriage by smaller aircraft, the only way to haul them was to double up a pair of these lighter bombers?
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

A twinned B-45?

I like that idea, easier to do than many proposals (even mine...) as it has straight wings and can you imagine that MONSTER 4 engine pod that would hang from the centre section.  :lol:

You could call it a Twinado.  ;D -_-

Sorry, I'll get my coat.......

Hmmm - Uber Nightfighter: two Cranberry fuselages with all four engines (RA24s, naturally) in the middle, crew in the nose of one, AI radar in the nose of the other, two gunpacks (8 x 20mm  :o) in the front of the bomb bays, main u/c members in theback of the bomb bays, PR.9-shape outer wings (actually heavily reinforced) two Red Deans and four Firesteaks on wing pylons....... :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

Well, one of my LHSs has some of those Amodel 1/144 Canberras. Unfortunately, my building speed is glacial to say the least. Even if I do go for it, I doubt I'd be the first here to get one done.
