The Feferman - Levy model makes $\aleph_1$ singular by a cardinal collapse $\aleph_1 = \aleph_{\omega}^L$. Unless I've got something wrong, the same thing would work to make any well-orderable cardinal $\alpha$ cofinal in its well-ordered cardinal successor. Is that right?

The Feferman -Levy model also makes the continuum a countable union of countable sets. Does that generalize to Beth numbers, in the sense of successive power sets starting with $\omega$? For each finite $n$, are there models where $\beth_{n+1}$ is a union of $\beth_{n}$ many sets each smaller than or the same size as $\beth_{n}$?
