Very generic Hobbycraft 1/144 th scale B-36
August 20, 2013 in Aviation
Although I was not at “The Home”, I built this for a lady whose Father worked on the B-36. He is elderly and she wanted it to give to him before the inevitable happens.
It does not represent a B-36 from any squadron in particular. Actually it is a very nice kit and was fun to build. Even in 1/144th it is a decent sized model. I have the Monogram 1/72 kit and some day I may build it. That one is large.
I remember well, the B-36 during the fifties. Many times they did touch and goes at SFO. As they left the area you could hear their noise for over 30 minutes. They certainly filled the sky as they left. Good, bad, or indifferent, this was a remarkable airplane.
