And the reason for that is after I buy the kit, I too will be living in the garage along with my stash.

It's been over a quarter-century since I worked on the B-2, but I can already see errors from those pictures.  Mind you, you would have to be intimately familiar with the aircraft to spot them, but I can claim that (especially the #1 aircraft which I am very intimately familiar with).  OTOH, none of them are particularly visible, so no harm, no foul.

Might not production aircraft be different to the prototype?

I think the cheapest counter to these tanks would be a Tallboy bomb (maybe something half the size). I'm doing a project of a De Havilland DH 101, which was a much larger Napier Sabre powered Mosquito fast bomber (see below), a variant that I'm building I'm calling a Tallboy bomber.

On a side note, I helped Tony Butler with determining the actual size of the thing and he has added my name into a book he has written.

Nice idea Jeff, but did they have lasers back in the late 40's though.

Thinking out loud now, if they used Tallboys to sink the Tirpitz, maybe a half sized one would do the trick here. Does anyone know if there's 1/144 scale Tallboys on the market ?

To the best of my knowledge, yes it is Robert.

Now Kiwi has also announced an 1/72 A-12 kit.  Not sure how they are building it.

Obviously something of an extraction.  The intakes render it subsonic and the projections on the wingtips do not help its RCS unless they hold some "cloaking device" or similar technology.  I think I'll pass.

Update on the Modelcollect website for the A-12:

http://www.modelcollect.com/a-12-usnavy-avenger-ii

Looks like an initial "suggested" price of $79.99, but no mention of an actual release date yet.

Aeroscale also had some additional CAD:

Hmmm...choices, choices...

  • Operational night fighter scheme such as this one:

    ?
  • Captured Soviet scheme?
  • Captured British or American scheme?
  • Swiss as per previous pages?
  • Smuggled to Argentina scheme?

BTW, in case anyone was interested, here is some more showing the crew, engine and weapons placement:



Modelcollect seem on a real Wehrmacht'46 bent.  I wonder what else they have in the pipeline?

If someone here has their B-2A, I have a question.  On the real aircraft, in the forward inboard corner of each main landing gear bay, is a vertically mounted APU inside a circular, except where it attaches to the inboard bay buikhead, fireshroud; doe the kit depict this?  For reference, that triangular panel just outboard of the engine inlets is the door for the APU exhaust.

Yes, I've got my answer.  They do not depict the APU at all and their markings barely show the outline (and that wrongly) of the APU exhaust doors on the upper surface, let alone any detail to depict the doors in the closed position nor any option for displaying them in the open position.  It definitely does not persuade me to spend good money on this kit.  I lived with the design of that aircraft for 6-1/2 years with some heavy overtime involved; I feel that I do know the aircraft reasonably well.

I've got two of the Testors kits (one built) already, but this might tempt me to buy another, just for the bombay detail alone ---

And those B-52's are tempting too, but I think the eight 1/72 kits I have already is more than enough. Interesting to see they have done an 'F' though, one of the kits I have is ear-marked to be an 'F' and I was almost ready to cast up some nacelles before we did our house move (now almost 12 years ago) but somehow the project got buried in the pile ---

Never understood the fascination of some people with "double cannon" tanks.  Unless AA or Rcl weapons, it seems rather pointless to me.  I think they would be better off spending their money on a good autoloader to up the ROF of the vehicle...
