1/144 Minicraft conversion B-50

September 2, 2013 in Aviation

This is a B-50 created from a Minicraft B-29a and a Minicraft C-97. Both are in 1/144 scale.
I started by cutting the Vertical tail off both kits. I then cut out the gunners cabin from the B-29 and placed it in the C-97’s vertical fin. Next was gluing the newly made tail back on the B-29 fuselage then gluing the C-97’s wing on to the B-29 fuselage and blending it to the fuselage.

  4. Who said bigger is better? Terrific job, Mark !

  5. Fantastic job, Mark, good to see something different,especially in this scale.

  6. A stellar example, sir….a fine job all-around.

  7. Might be 1/144th but I’m thinking it still is a fairly large model. A job well done.

  8. Thanks everyone for the nice welcome and comments.
