Default Convair B36 Peacemaker Western Models

Put in here as military is mainly 1/72.
Finally got a deal on the impressive Western Models Convair B36 Peacemaker
Old model but still a beast
Despite packing requests to seller, the box came just wrapped in cardboard with no extra padding. Suffice only front wheel broken and re-affixed.
Realised only other large SAC model needed is a B47, so a trip to ARD may be in order.

i have a 1/200 postage stamp B-29. It's a relatively small plane compared to modern passenger jets

That is on my "must haves, but not in my price range" list.


There are some Roden 1:144 scale B-36 kits for sale ebay and the like.
For B-36 lovers the cover art work is both impressive and scary at the same time.

Excellent addition Aviaction. It would get lost among all the 1/72 military stuff. Part of Western Models Classic Bombers & Utilities.

One of their gems, still a unique & impressive model. I do love me WMs!!!

I did notice the W/3 on tail is not on my one & the Yankee Doodle has also been added to the nose.

Oh what a beauty! Hopefully and wishfully this artwork will be part of my Convair collection in the not-so-distant future. Here is a close-up clip of this beauty taking off from the movie Six Turning and Four Burning.
