Mach2 1/72 B-45A Tornado


Recommended Posts

This was a bit of a challenge and it hasn't turned out great but frankly better than expected. Interesting aeroplane though.

It used more filler than glue in places and required a lot of weight to keep it in its wheels. Sprayed in Vallejo acrylics and using a Caracal decal sheet, here it is.

Very good to see it built, and a great job at that. I made a RB58 Vac-Form one many years ago [n RAF markings. Not a bit as good as your version

Here's your picture of that very model. Elliot Vac-form was it

The fact that your completed model even vaguely resembles a B-45C says volumes about your patience and modeling skills! A very nice model! :worthy:

I'll bet that was a challenge - the very first word in your subject line is "Mach2"! I think you did a great job taming the beast. The B-45 is underrepresented in the modelling community, and you don't see one of these often.    👍

 

Cheers,

Very nice work!  The B-45 was the "other" bomber featured in the 1953 film "War of the Worlds" - showing how they were stripped of armament and used as Courier Aircraft due to Commo Breakdown.   It was the Flying Wing, of course that dropped the A-Bomb in vain hopes of stopping them ....
