Very early RB-57E Patrica Lynn Canberra

Hello all, This is my attempt at producing an accurate 1/72 scale rendition on the RB-57E. For many years the Italeri B-57 was regarded as the best option but unfortunately the kit is deeply flawed, the issues are too many to go into here, but s[...]

Big Wing, 1/48 big build!

Airfix 1/48 B-57 Intruder

Yet another example of my NMF efforts. When first I discovered the simplicity of using the method I've described, I wanted to keep it going (where feasible), before I lost my touch. There were 2 or 3 different radomes included as options with [...]
