Robert W Martel Great to see all the interest guys. Like I said I won't be doing much extra on this one. The detail is very light, already the engine pods aren't the best fit. The decal sheet is the skimpiest I've ever seen!. It's just gonna be a plain silver paint, wheels up hang from the ceiling thing. Just a 'quickie". But it is a pretty historic plane.
Wilky, I also have the Valom B-45 in 72nd and it's pretty small compared to this beast. It was a long-range, six-engined, turbojet-powered strategic bomber designed to fly at high subsonic speed and at high altitude to avoid enemy interceptor aircraft. The primary mission of the B-47 was as a nuclear bomber capable of striking targets within the Soviet Union. [Wikipedia] Wingspan of 116 ft, 107 ft long compared to the b-45s 89 ft wing & 75 ft length.
It's a pretty large model, gonna be challenging to paint!!
