Question is: has anyone started with an A400 and ended up with a B400 and if so how?

 I saw a project A-400/B-400 in approximately 1995 in Oklahoma City.  They used a combination of '32 Victoria cowl, doors & body below the beltline/A-400 above the beltline & above the windshield.   It looked pretty good, but to the trained eye you could tell it wasn't a real B-400 - especially the rear bustle.

Thank you.  We have an A400 in nice panels and doors and cowl in the warehouse and I was trying to visualize the differences and if it would work.  Best to keep it as an A400

I agree, but I am not a fan of making deuce-like As.  Keep them as is; they stand on their own IMHO.  Besides, A-400s are cool.

That is Danny’s personal project.  He’s a damn good fabricator and builder.
