Hello All,

Here's the plastic washer installed to stop the axle moving rearwards and prevents contact of the propeller roots with the engine. Yet to test it!

Regards,
Alan

Excellent progress!
I used the dihedral fix suggestion to add dihedral on a much simpler model, an Oddball Productions Cessna 337 Skymaster done in 1/72 scale.

Alan, I have you some good news:
Join Venture Group has been reactivated and will have two interesting surprises that will be well liked, with more than 50 liveries to choose.
So be ready to give a friend to the Dragon!

Alan
Today ecardmodels has released a combo of the four versions of the B-23 Dragon, 1/48 scale.
In a few days there will be released the same combo but 1/72.
So if you want your own fleet of Dragons, go ahead!
About the new model from Join Venture Group, it should be released by the end of February

Got 'em. They al look great. I like the two "alternate universe" USAAF North Africa and the civilian scheme. 17B 9 of the 17th Bombardment Group and the 89th Reconnaissance Squadron at McChord Army Air Field, Washington, in 1940 (the markings of the B-23 at the National Museum of the USAF) looks good, too, although the cowlings look rather green (in the color images I have seen, they look more yellow).

Thanks, Don!
About the cowlings, I'll have to look for the pictures I used as a guide, but probably yours were taken with flash inside the museum, and mine was taken outside, and I'm almost sure it was taken from the picture in this cover.
So let's say that the model is represented as it was before being placed inside.

The combo with all the four versions of the B-23 Dragon in 1/72 scale has been released by ecardmodes.
I have included the two "what if" versions in the same scale that haven't been published before.
