Default Convair B-36 question

Thought I'd try this forum since I did not get a response from the warbird forum.

I'm looking for some experience with this bomber. I just received both sets of plans that I know of for the Convair B-36 bomber. The first set of plans is the big one offered by Don Smith Plans. The second set is the slightly smaller version offered by Traplet in the UK for an electric version. I would like to build either using 4 stroke glow power and I was looking to correspond with anyone who has any experience with either of these two designs.

don't have any experience with this plane but I do have three different sets of plans for it, and none of them are Don Smith. Two are electric, and one is glow. I love to get a look at Don's plans, as one of my up comming projects is a Peacemaker! I plan to build the small elect first (small 80" LOL), and then go to the bigger ones.
