I've got a publication somewhere here that has a short article and several photos of both XB-28s.

For those who don't know, the B-28 was to be a high-altitude pressurized medium bomber with remote turrets--sort of a twin engined B-29 in many respects. It wasn't really a flop but there wasn't a legitimate mission for it by the time the prototypes were built.
