Fuselage complete! Or at least fully roughed out.
26" wingspan. I'll call it an A-26; in truth, design inspiration was taken from both B-25 and A-26.
Both bombers are pretty much the same size. I've kept the wingspan proportionally to scale but substantially increased chord. With that much wing it should fly like a kite. The fuselage is to scale, but the lines smoothed a bit like on the B-25. Those big engine nacelles were scale in plan and side elevation, but a square cross-section always looks bulkier than round, so then I re-made them 2/10ths of an inch smaller on each side of the square. Tail surfaces are quite a bit larger too.
I was so afraid of the day where I would want to curve FB like the Master Series designs. I planned to build this with a cardstock top to the fuselage. During construction I just rolled over to complete FB throughout. (I still don't really know how that happened!) I'm so pleased with the result. Much victory! Very success!
I now see how paint will fix all evils.
It might be a while until it flies, it'll need to be finished up and I have some other things to attend to for a bit, but I'll post the results.
At this scale the geometry dictated that I need to remove a bit of the wing within the fuselage to have enough height for the battery. I'd love to keep the battery forward of the wing but I believe it'll need to overlap the leading edge. I did add a flat plate of plywood in that hole (not shown). Next time I'll beef up the wing with more plywood stringers where I can alongside my foam spars near the glue line to avoid wing folding. Let's hope it's fine the way it is.
