Superscale 72-272: B-36 Peacemaker

Units: see review




Scott Van Aken

Having found some really nice older decals recently, I thought I'd share some of them with you. This particular one is for the Monogram 1/72 B-36. This is one of those kits that nearly every modeler owns, but few have actually built. Face it, it takes up as much room as 15-20 single engined prop planes and makes a mockery out of shelf space! However, it is totally awesome when it is finally built and I do enjoy seeing one when someone has it at a show.

The Monogram kit decals are, well insipid at best and unworkable at their worst. Finding sheets for this beast are not the easiest thing so when I got this one I scarfed up on it.

First plane is an RB-36F from 348 BS(shouldn't that be RS?)/99 SRW. It carries a very nice checkered tail top and nose gear doors.

The other aircraft is a B-36H from the 7th BW and has a blue fin tip and blue jet engine pod intakes. The instructions state that this plane has the anti-flash white undersides to the fuselage and the horizontal stabs.

As you might guess, you'll need to get national insignia from somewhere else, but the rest of the sheet is a beauty. I'd search out something like this if you are getting ready to actually build your Monogram B-36.
