Default Plans for 500 lb and/or 1000 lb bombs used in WWII

Has anyone come across plans or does anyone have plans for the 500 lb and/or 1000 lb bombs used in WWII? I have a 1/6 scale P-47 that I would like to construct some scale bombs for. Thanks.

Default Try over at.....

http://www.network54.com/Forum/33351 .

It's a computer sim aviation forum. It seems as though there are a lot of aviation "buffs" over there that may be able to help you find what your looking for.

Hope that helps!

ps. Try asking either Zephyr, KAPTOR, Centurian, and I guess anyone else there. I beleive they know a lot about military aircraft.

Thansk sf4JC for the info. When I get time, I will try the forum.


Thanks bash-ace for the pics. Those are exactly what I am looking for. Do you know if the information placard states the size of the bombs? It would be helpful to know the length and width so I can scale them to the correct size.

Default Bombs

The placards only state what type bomb it is, not the actual sizes, I could probably go and measure them.

Here's another angle...

I'll get them on my next trip to the armament museum, it's only about 4 miles from my house.
