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

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I'm glad to see some CAD for the B-2, there will be a lot of excited builders out there. Looks good!

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?

Not in the areas I know about, I've seen aircraft #2-4 also and they all were the same.

To model company:  How about a US Army '46 counterpart to these huge German tanks ?
Figure shipped as a bare hull "kit" due to weight for final assembly in Europe or wherever.
Early cold war monster tank a counter part to SAC getting big bombers and USN getting Midway and Forrestal class carriers.  ;)

Perhaps a modified M103 as a first effort?  Then on to "bigger and better" efforts.;)

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.

@Robert (KitNut617) - Since you already have a TV-Guided Tallboy in your arsenal, why not add a Laser Guided Tallboy!  :)

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 ?

Indeed:



Click on image to go to dedicated page - comes in 1/72 and 1/48.  One could always use a 1/72 one on a 1/48 aircraft too. ;)
