AIR OFFENSIVE POWER
Tremble before the CCCP's shiny new B2, which we stole from those confounded Capitalists! Mwahahaha *cough*
In the hangar...
Out the hangar...
Ready for take-off, in the general direction of, oh I don't know... YOUR country.
Take away the huge and oddly shaped wings and it's like a bird in flight. Sort of. It is if you stand back and squint a bit... oh well, please yourselves...
That underside, bristling with folding undercarriage bits and bomb doors. And bombs. Gotta have bombs.
That overside, with two pairs of engines and a very tiny pilot. Probably. The B 2 is such a huge plane that microscale was the only way to go. 172 ft wingspan!
That underside again. It's less threatening on it's back.
Opening bomb doors, with bombs... for now.
Three part folding undercarriage unfolded.
Some random views... this thing has many flaps - eight in all - in an effort to make it some semblance of controllable without vertical surfaces, which is what gives it the very low radar signature. That's why the wingspan is SO big.
The CCCP's air force is fully equipped, for pilots of wildly varying sizes...
another one I did nt saw coming, I m not used to see you build war equipment, you re so polyvalent, and exel in every dept! when I saw this on home, I figured it made by a war pro, since it s so perfect, and now, I see all the functions...it blows me away as well! congrats Nick! you re the man!
Not bad, but "THE" bomber is probably the BUFF, Big Ugly Fat...Fellow (I'll try to be appropriate) otherwise known as the B-52 Stratofortress. They have airframes that have been in continuous service for 50 years with 3 generations of the same family flying them. With another 30 years of service life, I wouldn't be surprised to hear that 4 or 5 generations of a single family took the same bird into combat. That's THE bomber. This all being said, though, your B-2 has some nice features for its small scale. The opening landing gear and bay doors are a very nice touch.
This is absolutely stunning, instantly recognisable. Looks to be the perfect 'swooshing' size too, which is an undeniable plus. Folding landing gear is another plus. And opening bomb compartment... I'll stop now! A shame it looks too big to 'drive' into the hangar ;) Fantastic work, I love it.
Incredible! Saw the thumbnail and thought it was fake. This is the most impressive micro scale B-2 I've ever seen. And having seen a real one once, you really captured the sleekness and awe of this bomber.
Great model! I love the shape and all of the functions look very slick, especially the wheels. The shape and functionality of the stand is also terrific, the rake of the post and super clean lines make it worthy of holding such a cool aircraft.
I actually built a B-2 Spirit, a few years ago (its up here on the 'pages), and I can appreciate the difficulty in building this marvelous machine. You sir, have done a fan-bleeding-tastic job! I only have two complaints: the section in the back of the aircraft (that forms the "w" shape) the areas that are closer to the outer wing (boy this is hard to explain) are bit to large; they need to be thinned out. Also, I don't think that the amazing stealth would work with the eight 1x1 round tiles across the bottom. These are little problems, though; nit-picking really. You did a fantastic job, a well deserved 5/5.
