For a built model, Tom Probert built a 1/32 ID vac. Probably visible here or on LSP. 

As for the build and the end result, this is a perfect illustration of the famous sow’s ear and silk purse story ;)

I did indeed build the ID Models kit a few years back and as the entire interior had to be scratch-built I did lots of research - do ask if you have any questions as I became particularly familiar with the internal details of the B-29. 
 

There will be a build thread on LSP and Britmodeller somewhere (wasn’t a member we here back then) but I’m not sure if the photos survived the photobucket debacle.

Interesting rippling along the fuselage, I haven't seen many like this one, maybe most WW2 images had almost factory fresh deliveries 

although its noted that this B-29 has been damaged https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/usa/aircrafts-2-3/b-29/boeing-b-29-superfortress-damaged-tinian/

Rippling that bad and being on jack stands....  pretty sure that machine was completely structurally compromised.  TBH...  Can;t say I've ever noticed any tin-canning on an in-service B-29.
