The B-36 Peacemaker is an amazing plane. It is substantially larger than the B-52 (230ft wingspan of the B-36, compared to the 180ft of the B-52). However, despite its size, it never really caught the eye of public, for its fame was stolen by the B-52. This plane was relatively easy to build, just time consuming.
About this creation
So, to kick things off, here is a picture of the plane in comparison to other contemporary bombers.
A side view of the plane. This plane was simply amazing considering its size and payload.
A quarter view of this plane. It really shows off the six pusher propellers, and 4 jet engines.
A close-up of the front of the fuselage. The cockpit took a little thinking, but I believe that the results were excellent.

These photos were rather quick, so sorry about that. I may consider some better picutres at a later date, however. I will depart saying this:
Six turnin', four burnin'!
Oh yes, and here is a link for some more information on this remarkable aircraft:

Would you mind if I borrowed many of the features from this B-36 (I would give you credit)? I want to put it with other strategic bombers of the 1950's (B-29, B-47, B-52, B-58) at a scale like this.
Sure man! I can't really think of how many techniques can actually be used on other bombers, but I'm good with it!

I think you are missing 2 jet engines there should be 2 turbine engines and 3 propeller engines on each wing witch prompts the saying 6 turning 4 burning or am i mixing that up with something else?
I think, rather, you didn't notice that the engines are paired together; it's not easy to see, but that is what I have on my model. Thanks for the comment!
