B-2 Spirit - Modelcollect 1/72

Recommended Posts

Overall incredibly pleased, very good kit, there were a few tricky bits where I had to do some DIY but overall very solid and easy to build. Expensive kit though!

 

I studied a lot of photos of the B-2 and pretty much each of the 21 aircraft is different(Different panels, shapes, shades of grey…) So I didn’t outright copy one plane, I kind of created my own finish on it using lots of inspirations. However I did go for a more ‘patchwork’ finish rather than going for a plain finish.  Have a look at these photos of the B-2:

Let me know what you think. Any feedback would be appreciated.

 

I used normal brushes, a lot of masking tape, Decal Set(Blue), Humbrol filler and Humbrol enamel paints(85/191, 123, 125, 164, 156)

I also have photos of different stages of the build if anyone is interested. 

 

Also thanks for the tips people gave me on here.

Im sure this is a great looking B-2 considering all the questions you asked. So I gave you a “like”. Sadly Im only seeing the photobucket Ransom screen. I know there is a patch but i cant use it.

I can see it and it looks great, especially knowing you brush painted the finish. What's the span of this kit?

 

Never knew there were only 21 of these beasts.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Really?!? Have I posted the photos incorrectly? I just copied the Photobucket direct link in, they're there for me. 

Thanks, the wingspan is 73cm! 

Brush painting was particularly difficult over and around the masked areas, the underside isn't as sharp as the top but still decent.

I can't see the photos either, but like Corsair, I'm in the States - maybe that's the reason? (Although it would be a weird reason.)

Photos all clear from here - perhaps you lot don't have the right "stealth" settings for yu viewing? (or he links have been adjusted since you posted!)

 

great looking build btw, an a real exercise in testing your patience with masking!

Excellent job! It's nice to see that Modelcollect have done a good job on the kit. I look forward to their B-52s.

A lovely model of an aircraft I haven't seen or know anything about. I certainly didn't realise that it had such a big span.

Thanks for posting

Hello @EthanGreen123 & @John Laidlaw. No its not likely the USA. I cant use the software patches to bypass the Ransom screen as im on a cellular internet connection. I cant upload programming like that into the apple iphone. 

 

Your link to the album works for me. Excellent work Ethan :thumbsup: something to be proud of.

With Chrome, there are a couple of Extensions you can install to see the images. I have 2 of them installed and can see your pictures.

 

nice work! :thumbsup:

Still can't see them when embedded (and I'm using the plugin), but can see them with direct link. A beautiful piece of work, Ethan!

I'm sure it's great but I can't see them in Australia, either. Mind you, I can't see most of the posts with photobucket, either.

Nope. Can see the previews but clicking on the picture brings up the usual ransomware message.
