I just had a nifty idea regarding the B-36. Since I'm having trouble with the double engine pods on Sanger's B-47 (build stopped dead) I wonder if they'll cast an extra pair of jet pods when I order my Peacemaker for a nominal fee for use on the Stratojet?

I bought the Sanger B-47 last year. I opened the box, took one look, closed the box and put it on a shelf. Never to be opened again.

Wow! BIG Model! I sold off my 1/72 B-36 because there's not enough space for it at home. Where would you put this? Build it and then donate it to a Museum?

 

So it's $700 for the kit and $200 for all the paint!:party:

Eventually, this will be a retirement project so it will be a few years. Had to get it before it was gone!

Already planning the new display case to hold this beast and it worked out to about $550 for the kit and $117 for postage. And yes, a lot of paint required!

Just got my invoice for this monster as well.

650 EUR incl shipping to Sweden.

Do you get to keep the 40ft shipping container it comes in?

What you all going to do with it when built? Use the wings as a shelf of doom...?  Use the fuselage to store your stash...? :o

Man, that SOUND! I wish I could have heard a B-36 "live".... HPH should supply the kit with a CD of B-36 recordings....

Love that video, especially the subtitles "(Inspiring music)" :D
