Roland - Now you have me scampering to my old, dog-eared copy of Squadron/Signal publications Aircraft No. 28 'B-47 Stratojet in action' (1976)! It informs me that 51-2115 was a WB-47B(II)-30-BW - the '47B(II)' part may be important as it indicates a 'B' model modified to 'E' standard! Only problem may be that it is an early 'E' standard before the 'solid nose' was finally introduced (photographs on page 28 of the book clearly show the small windows forward and below of the main windscreen - a small view on the world for the navigator!). Is it beyond hope you might be prepared to suggest these by paint/decal?
The publication also shows the same aircraft later in its career carrying a similar, but even more colourful scheme - that has always been my favourite (but I digress).
There are also a couple of photographs of the NMF Navy -47s - used for quite a lot of test work, one picture shows a sister ship carrying a GE TF-34 engine (making a 7-engine ship!) during engine evaluation for the S-3A Viking!
Unfortunately, virtually all the photographs in the publication are black & white, so gauging the colour of the wheel bay/inside of gear doors is a bit of a guess - NMF looks pretty safe though! If I find anything more convincing in the short-term, I will let you know.
Not certain if this helps or hinders - either way, you are still streets ahead of me (if not on a different planet!) in your modelling skills!
Your humble servant.
