Hi everyone, Thought I'd share with you some pictures of my 1/144th Hobbycraft GRB-36 Peacemaker with its RF-84 Ficon. Both are built OOB, and finish with Alclad II metals in varying shades and colour's to give the NMF. The kit also includes a little XF-85 Goblin and trailer as a bonus. To this I made a thinner vac canopy and posed it open. ( 'Gene' is added to show how big the aircraft were ) I really enjoyed the build and watched Strategic Air Command several times as 'research' to try and replicate the finish of the B-36. Also recommended is 'Magnesium Overcast' The story of the Convair B-36 by Dennis. R. Jenkins. Hope you like, comments, suggestions welcome. Thanks, Kevin I

Years ago HpH released a 1/48th Convair B-36 Peacemaker fiberglas kit. It sound that this super kit will be re-released soon. Why not after the 1/48th XB-70 and Concorde kits? The box art was recently unveiled. Wait and see.
