That was quite a bump and I know what ya’ll are thinking, and I’m here to tell you it wasn’t the airline’s fault, it wasn’t the pilot’s fault, it wasn’t the flight attendants’ fault…..it was the asphalt!
Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Captain Crash and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt up against the gate. At no time in history has a passenger

beaten a plane to the gate. So please don’t even try. And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silence, we’ll open the door and you can pick your way t

hrough the wreckage to the terminal.As you exit the plane, please make sure to sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants.

Please do not leave children or spouses. Also Please be careful opening the overhead bins because shift happens.
We’d like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you’ll think of us here at Disast Air.

 Ok now that we've landed from the WIP here we go....

A year ago last June I started on a little project  THe is part1 of a 2 part series. HpH 1/48  B-36H. Resin /Fibreglass construction with resin and P/E for detail. I added numerous extra bits mostly in the Bomb bay and gunturrets

You can find the build here:

THis is no light weight to be sure. Weighing in at a svelte 4.6 kilos. Clad in a mixture of Bare metal Foils and AlcladII Metal paints.

Some of the decals I changed from the kit as this is a representation of the aircraft from the Movie Strategic Air Command. Only difference, its later than the movie and before the Feather weight I,II,II programs commenced.

I hope you enjoy my little offering And Thank you for viewing. As always If you have and comments questions or suggestions Don't hesitate to let me know. Right now I'm going to get something cold to drink so I can Cool off my hands. It's 34C outside and in the 15 min that I was out taking pictures. the aluminum Cladding on the model got VERY hot. Didn't expect that to happen. Have an Excellent day, For the Yanks in the bunch Happy 4th of July, or as I like to explain to the younger set, the day we Unfriended Good King George III.

😂😂😂 I'm guessing Southwest is the origin of this, heard similar from my time in easyJet when it was a fun airline. 

 

Can't say anything to really do your amazing build justice. I've followed the build, been constantly impressed by your skills and the finished work is fantastic, all there is to say. 

 

Great job Loren and Happy 4th July 👍

That is ginormous! I know cos I got it's little sister on the go. Is there a problem with the right MLG? The gear door should be on the outside?

Otherwise :wow:

You're absolutely right Sir. It had snapped off as I was attaching the wings. And stuck it back on while balancing three things at once :footy:It has been corrected. Thanks!

Stunning result and thank you for sharing. By the way, always be careful with models in the sun. I once had a Heller 1/48 Mirage IV melt on me 😲😠.

Wow, very impressive. That thing must be quite a behemot, hope you have enough storage space. I guess "little project" is quite an understatement when looking at your WIP but I'm sure this B-36 is an impressive centerpiece of your collection from now on :worthy:

 

Cheers

Thank you Markus😁Weighing in around a little over 4 1/2 kilos(just under 10lbs) I had to rethink the hook for the ceiling. The only place it could go. Even there it takes up a lot of area. I doubt I will ever build anything larger,unless it's something I can fly myself. But first need to repair minor damage from moving around to take photos. Luckily the wings are removable. So everything is back in their cradles temporarily.

Now that is stupidly large but beautifully done. I like the bombload, particularly - though why you'd need two Grand Slam conventional bombs with what looks to be a multi-megaton special weapon, I don't know! Great work.

Spectacular! Congratulations on an epic result from an epic build.I bet it was a thrill to put it together and realise just how big it is.

 

It's good to max out your modelling sometimes. I predict you will want to build something very small next...

Spectacular build.  And what a size... My wife would feed me to the Welsh Red Dragon if I ever tried to bring home something that big!

Thanks Bell209. Honestly I didn't want to have an empty rear Bay and the kit with four tall boys. Is this a load by the book? Probably not especially with a 20 megaton in the front but I like to think they just wanted to be prepared.🙄 Also at the time I didn't have enough resin to have do a second mk17 when I came up with the idea.

Excellent, superlative work, my friend! A real tribute to your building and painting skills. 

 

A friend of mince once saw a B-36 landing at a UK airbase. He said the noise was nearly ear-drum bursting. Not something you would forget in a hurry.

 

Thanks for sharing with us.

 

Chris.

What an amazing acomplishment!  Beautifully built and I must say I was wondering if we would ever see one of these big birds actually built and posted here.  Just wonderful to see this.

From a heavy duty hook already installed in the ceiling and 30lb test line. Of course, if it falls it'll probably kill someone. Me   😜
