    The Celestial Princess B29-40-BW 42-24590 was selected for my Revell 1/48 Scale Superfortress.

    An enormous project the kitchen table was just big enough.

    Finished in Alclad Polished Aluminium - the second natural finish I have completed following my CAC P51.

    Would be interested in seeing how other fared with this monster.

    Well looks like you've done quite a nice job , made a 1/48 B-24J a couple years ago and that was big enough

    Very nice. I build that model many years ago in my youth. Had even started a large base for use as a diorama, but it turned out to be way too big.

    I'm right in the middle of a B-29 build myself; had this one sitting on my shelf since 1980, figured I'd might as well build it finally.

    I'm doing mine as a Korean War bird, circa 1951, with a couple of Mk IV atom bombs (I know, she probably wouldn't have made if off the ground with two of those monsters on-board, but a guy can dream, can't he?); there is evidence that several Silverplate B-29's were in Japan in 1951, as were a few Mk IV "devices", and that MacArthur was quite prepared to use them if it looked like the Chinese were going to overrun the ROK. I'll try and post some pictures this weekend.
