Product Description

This Northrop YB-49A Flying Wing U.S. Air Force aircraft model is in 1:100 scale. This spectacular model has a wingspan of 21" and is 6" in length. The Northrop YB-49 was a prototype jet-powered flying wing medium bomber aircraft developed by Northrop for the United States Air Force shortly after World War II. It was a development of the piston-engined YB-35, and the two YB-49s actually built were both converted YB-35 test aircraft. The aircraft was never to enter production, however, being passed over in favor of the more conventional Convair B-36 in service

Working from exact aircraft blueprints, the majority of these beautiful replica models are hand sculptured by master craftsmen who use premium treated Philippine mahogany wood. Each model passes through several stages of sanding and priming before talented artists apply paint and detail. Extreme care is made to apply historically accurate aircraft markings and emblems. Before completion, each model receives several coats of clear lacquer to create not only a spectacular work of aviation art, but to insure each model will be a lasting addition to any airline or aircraft model collection.

All models come with a mahogany display stand to present your aircraft in style! Perfect item or gift for that Military Aviation memorabilia or Aircraft Model enthusiast! Please Click On Image For A Closer Look!
