I've been working on both levels of the forward crew area, and am now placing Airscale decals in each one of he tiny engineer's panel. It's not for the faint of heart, and will be a long, LONG project

Fore a fiberglass and resin kit is the price more than ok.
Btw they are also gonna release a B-52 in 48 next year ;)

Btw this kit was already released last year.
19. September 2018, 06:47

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!

It wasn't called the Magnesium Overcast for nothing
14. November 2016, 18:21
Lol Dave, I might be tempted if they did one.. but I doubt the CAA would like what I'd do! lol
14. November 2016, 18:26
Would make a nice coffee table :)

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, 20:22
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

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, 10:46

:o nen Meter ist schon mal ne ordentliche Hausnummer.
Fällt dann aber auf jeden Fall, das Modell. :)

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! :)

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, 22:17
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, 07:36
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, 16:07
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.
