Time to give the C-46 some lovin'.

Here are comparison photos of the C-46, B-17 and Lancaster. The B-17 and Lancaster wings are near perfect fits. Maybe someone here is working on a 4 engine C-46?   ;)

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Like visual comparison of fuselage and wings.  C-46 is sizeable for its time.  Is four engine C-47H on BTS.  C-46 is due to have four engine derivative.

Thanks for the comparison shots. I had planned a Lanc-winged C-46 sideview but can't remember if I even finished it. Hmmm, maybe I'll re-do it ... if I can't remember an earlier version, probably no-one else can either  ;D

Something off the wall - B-17 wing with North Star engines fitted on the C-46 fuselage and tail.
