19. February 2017 at 10:19:54
Urban Gardini Yes, where to put it when it's built. But there's at least the option of not gluing the wings shut for ease of transport and storage. Looking great so far mate!

Dave Flitton It wasn't called the Magnesium Overcast for nothing
14. November 2016 at 18:21:54

Guus Would make a nice coffee table :)
14. November 2016 at 19:35:36
Dave Flitton I think someone already built a B-36 flying model complete with turbojets - larger than 1/32 - of course it took a few people to manage all of that hardware
14. November 2016 at 20:22:45
Wilfried Bogaerts It's huge, that's true, but a wing fold set would make it fit on your shelf, go for it Augie ! :D

Burkhard D Das Teil ist in der Tat riesig. Wenn ich es dann mal baue - das ist durchaus vorgesehen - dann sicher mit abnehmbaren Flügeln. Hat wohl knapp 1m Spannweite. Hab's gerade gebaut bei einem Kollegen gesehen (als Luftwaffe 1946 What-if!)
19. September 2014 at 10:46:56
Mathias Carl :o nen Meter ist schon mal ne ordentliche Hausnummer.
Fällt dann aber auf jeden Fall, das Modell. :)

Holger Kranich Hi Colleux!
When you click on the item and scroll down, you can see who has it in his stash. Maybe you just ask them? There is, f.e., a nice guy called Urban Gardini. I would ask him! :)

Greetz, Holger
25. July 2012 at 11:41:53
Frank Krause Urban's full service! Nice, Urban!
25. July 2012 at 16:27:26
Urban Gardini The worst part was to get the stash back in order again deep under the couch were it lives.
25. July 2012 at 16:41:12
Frank Krause Why packing back? Build it... ;)
25. July 2012 at 16:42:06
Urban Gardini No place for it as it is now. Need a bigger apartment n' some dedicated storage for it...

Urban Gardini Not for me though, one is just the right number...
2. February 2012 at 20:41:51
Bill Gilman I built this one about 25 years ago. What a monster! Luckily the B-36 is not NMF, but painted high-speed silver. Made the job a lot easier! I built it on commission for a hobby shop owner, who hung it from the ceiling in his shop. It didn't survive a rapid loss of altitude that happened one day when the wire snapped!
2. February 2012 at 22:17:15
Tigers! Tigers! nice one bill, she sure is big!. doing her in nmf would be a task and a half but even hss is no easy feat, i did shy away from these untill the advent of ali-clad which in mho is the best thing since sliced bread, have you used it at all? BTW hope he had shop insurance for falling bomb ..... ers LOL ;)
3. February 2012 at 07:36:53
Bill Gilman I've just started using Alclad. Have a look at the Lightning project in my photo albums. This is my first job with Alclad - I love the stuff! And no, the shopkeeper didn't have falling bomber insurance..LOL. He closed up the shop about 5 years after I built the B-36 for him.
3. February 2012 at 16:07:26
Tigers! Tigers! nice job on the lightning bill, did you use the black under coat on that one? i have found differing undercoats give slightly differing shade finishes and is useful as alclad is not cheap.
