Minicraft 1/144th scale Boeing KB-50J


Recommended Posts

Recent build.  I kit-bashed the B-29A and the KC-97G to create this KB-50J Superfortress, 420th ARS, RAF Sculthorpe, 1959.  Decals are cobbeled together from the parts box and the wingtip hose pods are 136 gallon drop tanks from the Airfix 1/72nd scale P-51D.  Tamiya acrylic paints and Future floor wax.

Excellent! The mark of a good conversion is not being able to easily see where the work was done, and I'd have taken it for the Academy kit. Congrats on a nice looking build of a subject not often seen!

Really a nice job on the conversion!  I had a chance to photograph the real thing at Pima Air Museum, and you captured it exactly!
