Excellent profile, and condolences for those lost in the crash. Fire-fighting is very dangerous flying...

I must say I'd forgotten about this thread in some ways.... I have made little progress on the full-size car since those two photos were taken, and right now it is VERY cold here in the middle of the U.S. so I am not about to venture into the shop. This spring I'll get going again on Ingrid, but for now I'm keeping the water pipes from freezing in the house!

Moving along nicely!

Although I love the B-32 myself, it really is an ugly duckling compared to the B-29, isn't it!?

Also, I started a 1/48 Dominator project back when I was a contest modeler. I planned to use a Monogram B-24 as inspiration but the airplane would have been mostly scratch-built. Several months after I started collecting components to build mine I went to a contest and someone had built a beautiful 1/48 B-32, so mine went into semi-permanent hibernation.......

About the only thing left of the entire B-32 production is one outer wing panel that is part of a monument/memorial in Southern California and a couple of the nose and tail ball turrets. When the war ended the AAF got rid of the B-32s pretty quickly, sending the survivors either to Kingman or Walnut Ridge for scrapping. There must be some remains out in the Pacific since a couple of them crashed during the final days of the war.
