OK gents! If anybody has a spare 1/72 Monogram B-36 and a pair of 1/72 Italeri RF-84F's lying around, as well as a butt-load of plastruct and plasticard bits, here's one that will take up an entire table and the next contest! Got this from a modeling buddy just now and wanted to share it. I can't imagine why they wasted the money, aircraft, and possibly lives on something like this. I reckon having winged bodies out there on the wingtips didn't put any weight on the wings, as they most likely contributed enough lift to offset the weight, sort of like fins on a tip tanks, but bet it was no fun in turbulence and when turning! Would make an impressive conversion, though! I do seem to recall seeing a Monogram B-36 conversion many years ago with an Italeri RF-84F in the bomb bay as one of the FICON project tandems. Mike
Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen. Welcome my friends back to the show that never ends. Come inside, come inside. In another thread I have, waaaaay over there, somewheres,as I was in the final stages of a build ,which not quite finished but almost, I asked you, my learned colleagues, what would be fine example of aeronautical engineering to start next and I had 2 examples. both 1/48 and both big. One was Hph's B-36H and the other Sanger's B-47E. Unfortunately consensus was split evenly down the middle. Even my Executive Decision Apparatus failed me. Not for the faint of heart, Not entirely sure where they will put when finished. But no matter. On with the show and all that rubbish. The title appropriately enough comes from a movie waaayyy back when starring Jimmy Stewart named "Strategic Air Command" I will try to use as many elements from both cinema aircraft as possible, but there will be deviations and some "artistic licence " as needed or warranted. On the B-36H side, it will be done prior to the featherweight programs were initiated,. This means I'm adding the upper turrets in the open configurations, the front fully deployed and the rear open but stowed. In the bomb bay I'll replace the forward 20,000 lb bombs with a mk17 nuclear weapon. and of course numerous additions to the interior that no one will ever see except in the photo record. The B-47E on the other hand was done along time ago on another forum by Darius Aibara. His build is what inspired me to get back into doing Vacs. Some of his elements I may duplicate but the majority will be things I've not tried before. The outer coating on both will be a mixture of NMF and Alclad II making them both a definite Magnesium Overcast, which is what I almost called this thread. So, gather around, pull up the most comfortable easy chair you can find, lay in copious amounts of your favorite libations and be sure to kibbutz until the cows come home to roost. I'll need all the encouragement and advice from all my learned colleagues. So shall we begin? I do just love an "E" ticket ride
Yes, sports fans, you read that right, HPH are supposedly coming out with a 1/48th scale B-36. Let that sink in for a moment. A. 1/48th scale. B. 36. A 1/48TH SCALE B-36! Here's the link to show that I haven't been drinking what I soak my airbrush in - http://www.hphmodels.cz/hph/?lang=en Best Regards, Jason
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.
