sound like a plan to me. How many models have bomb/rockets with 'em? I know the B-17, B-29, B-10, 'stang, A-7, F9F, Helldiver Zero, FW-190 & F-86 have some, any others?

Niki, I'd sure like a copy as well. johnlp47(at)gmail(dot)com

There is one problem with designing bombs, information on them is scarce to non existent! I have yet to find any decent information on bombs used by the U.S. in the 1930s, from what I gather it appears that thy are similar to the one in use in WWI.

If information is scarce on what various bombs looked like, there is one surefire workaround: build them just after detonation. After detonation all shrapnel looks pretty much alike, so it'd be a very simple matter to build a common post-detonation bomb sheet.

This might not be much help for those who're looking to put these bombs on their airplane models (with the exception of modelers who enjoy making aircraft whose bombs went off while still attached), but it does solve very neatly the problem of building various bombs whose information is as scattered and sparse as the bomb shrapnel itself.

:twisted:

You know, there's a freebie model of the SR-71 online that builds very much like it's bomb load cooked off

Wow John, that's stunning! I'm very very impressed :D. What software did you use to design this?

Thanks Chris! I used Google SketchUp to draw & unfold the basic 3D model, then GIMP to correct the layout of the unfolded parts, then finally Inkscape to trace over the parts from SketchUp, add the colors, markings, & small parts.
now I just need a plane to put it on...

I'd never even heard of SketchUp before, but I've had a quick gander and it looks very interesting and fairly easy to use. Thanks for making me aware of it John :D. Is it possible to design, say, an aircraft using this too?!

Yes, it is. How I do not no, but I've seen some prity imprsive SketchUp drawn airplanes, like this SBD Dauntless
