Not a historical scheme, just one I thought would look good.  ;)

A bare metal finish wouldn’t be bad, either...

That's quite an inter-continental experimental flying wing bomber you've got there!

I enjoyed seeing it next to the B-17.

You guys are great for chiming in regarding colors.   Appreciated - Thanks.

Have another B-49 mostly assembled that found at swap meet.   Did test paint with Krylon Italian Olive satin.   Is perfect, will go with it.    Now that colors picked can move along with build !

I flexed a bit o' google-fu and I can see it!

The markings will looks fantastic against that Krylon Italian Olive.

Sounds like a solid choice!

Did paint top of wing Italian Olive.   Looks so bombery to me.   Two places paint demons raised hell.   When dry will attack those.

Back to building XFWB.   After MUCH PSR & PSR "wing" is built and painted.   Attached vertical stabilizers.   Leaves clear parts, landing gear, props, guns, decals to do.

Thanks all for your positive comments.  First time to build one of AMT flying wing kits.  By working on it can see various kit-bash concepts.
Similar builds could use C-130(H/J) engines or go turbojet/turbofan as 1950s-60s-70s.... versions.  Instead of consuming six P-40B kits.  Update stabilizers accordingly.

Following being flooded and bozo contractor from hell and fitting in build time on two 1/1 cars did more on Experimental Flying Wing Bomber.   OOB main landing gear and parts bin nose gear.   Rudder decals.   Props taped on to get effect.

Progress pictures attached.
