    I dont think you'll be seeing any plans of this one. Butch is (i assume) doing an all composite airframe.

    I have always liked this airplane ever since i saw it across the runway at Convair while I was stationed at Carswell AFB flying on B-36's . The first one I saw had that distinctive Red and white paint trim. I also saw the first taxi test when the breaks caught fire, if it wasn't for the fast acting AF fire trucks it would have burnt to the ground ! Saw the first take off and remember the chase plane was a F-94 The LG was not retracted for the entire flight, and the Pod was not installed. All test flights after that were chased with an F 104. In early 1958 we were making a simulated Bombing Run on St Louis bomb plot and so was a B-58. Whey called in the run information : speed 1500 kts ! We were doing about 375. Even though it didn't have a long life, it was fast and a great deterrent in the cold war. GOOD LUCK and keep up the good work.

    The wing tips are so thin that I decided to put a couple layers of carbon on them and try and stiffen them. WOW! Only added .018 and it's like steel now.

    You must have one BIG dust collector. I programed and ran a 12' x 6' 3D curving machine use the duplicate doors and furniture parts we had carved and laser scanned. The dust collector could not be routed outside and It was impossible to talk when it was running!

    Seen a artist conception. That's the only thing I miss about Lockheed is see what the future holds.

    looked Happier in the hanger in Galveston. she had all the vacuum tube based equipment in her at the JRB last i saw, but i see they have blacked out the windows and i would assume gut her for all the road miles...

    Thanks for the tip Bill. Found the story of the dedication. looking good

    I agree, the "SR-72" branding was a giveaway

    When I first started at General Dynamics I worked on the Block 40 F-16 fire control computer. We were having a problem with our mount design (and the all powerful structures group) and an older gentleman who had worked avionics on the B-58 told us we were spoiled. He told us that the B-58 fire control computer had to be lowered by crane into the aircraft with various spreader bars in place as the fire control computer was a stressed frame member! Amazing technology for its day.

    Butch I have a question about your router but I will PM you. Please keep posting, this thread is a nice change of pace from the so called ARF "Build Threads" that have 3 pages of debate on the best was to hook up a clevis.

    That came out harsh, I was in the middle of an argument when I posted it. Still I wish we had more stuff like Butch's on here.

    My moment was buying dinner for a trooper sitting in an airport restraunt next to me at the bar. We chatted for a bit and I asked the waitress to give me his tab. Our vets and active troops have sacrificed plenty. Least we can do is buy dinner or a few drinks on a jet.
    Thanks, Jason
    I love it when my airplane is on fire...as long as the fire stays inside the engine!
