More Bill Bosworth – Republic Rainbow airliner
October 10, 2013 in Aviation
1/48 scratchbuilt Republic Rainbow. Probably one of the most beautiful multi-engine propeller airplanes ever flown. Had the Air Force picked it up, there was a plan at the end of the war for American Airlines to use it as a high-speed transport with 34 passengers. With a speed over 400 mph, it would have set the standard for post-war civil aviation.
