Description

Boeing B-50 SUPERFORTRESS Model Scale:1/136 The Boeing, US Air Force, B-50 Superfortress was a strategic bomber–nuclear capable, long-range subsonic, and high altitude bomber. Conceived and built just after World War II, the aircraft saw action during the Vietnam War. Although its design is similar to its predecessor, the B-50 is in fact an upgraded B-29. Equipped with Pratt and Whitney R-4360 radial engine, the B-50 was more powerful. The improved Superfortress even featured stronger and lighter wings made of 75ST aluminum alloy. The most glaring difference is the aircraft’s purpose: the B-50s primary mission was to deliver nuclear bombs to Soviet Russia. The B-50 Superfortress was later used to collect intelligence during the Cold War. Designed in an era before supersonic jet interceptors, the B-50 airplane became outdated sooner than expected. The introduction of the Soviet MiG-15 made the Superfortress’ popularity rapidly decrease as it became glaringly obsolete, and a danger to her crew. The B-50 Superfortress was slowly replaced by the Boeing B-47 Stratojet. The mighty Superfortress’ final missions were refueling operations as an airborne fuel tanker, high altitude photographic reconnaissance, hurricane hunting, and related weather reconnaissance tasks. Finally, in 1965, the B-50 Superfortress aircraft retired. Dimensions: Wingspan: 12.65 Inches Length: 8.85 Inches This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen.
