The Convair XC-99 was based on the B-36 and intended to ferry parts for the mammoth bomber. Only one was built. Ron’s conversion of Monogram’s 1/72 scale B-36 is largely scratchbuilt: He used the kit’s wings, gear, and vertical and horizontal stabilizers, but built the fuselage with plastic tubes, carved the nose and tail section from solid plastic blocks, and printed his own decals for the windows. “The round-tip propellers depict the early life of the plane,” he writes. “They were changed later to square-tip blades. However, the main gear is the four-wheel, later version.”
