XB-42 Mixmaster? Any Plans Out There?

Recommended Posts

Howdy Gang!

 

It's Sunday and I am dreaming of scratchbuild projects. I don't have a good source of plans for the XB-42 Mixmaster. Does anyone have a source?

 

Thanks!

Yep! Larry's is inspirational. I see someone made a 1/15 scratchbuilt RC model. I'm going to reach out to see if they will share their files. I can scale them down and laser-cut my own formers.

Is there one still around? 

 

Yes, stored at the USAF Museum in Dayton.

" 43-50224 - in storage awaiting restoration in the Restoration Hangar at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio. The prototype was struck off charge[clarify] in 1949 and was given to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C., in whose care it remains although it has never been placed on display. The wings were removed for transport but have since been lost. In late 2010, the fuselage was transferred, along with the Douglas XB-43 Jetmaster, to the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio where they are awaiting restoration in the Restoration Hangars. Once completed, they will be displayed in the Museum's Experimental Aircraft Hangar.[7] "

 

BTW One of the two jet powered XB-43s developed from the Mixmaster was stored in Washington by the Smithsonian for a long time before going to Dayton.
