Hello everyone!

My name is Joakim, Im swedish.

This is my first post at this forum and i will now enter the bomber gb.



This is my entry with a real bomber, the famous Boeing B-29 in a olivegreen camo.

I bought lifecolors set of diffrent shades of olivegreen and will try same fading and bleaching.

First some inbox pics of Acedemys 1/72 B-29.















I would say that this kit looks great! Nice details for 1/72, it has no riveting and that would be the downside. But else i think it looks great.

And cartograf decals:-)

It looks to be a nice kit! 

First i taped the fusalage together just to see what size im dealing with here....


Then i start with the cockpit, as usuall with aircrafts.  Some nice details straight from the box. I do see some very nice potential here to go aftermarket or
scratchbuilding but i wont do it this time. This build will be straight from the box. And with the small windows nothing will be seen anyway after the fusalage is closed.


front office :-)


Front office, crew tunnel over bomb bay and the crews resting area....shame it cant be seen after the fusalage half is joined :-(


And we have paint! :-)

Hi Joakim, this looks like a very nice (and huge!!!) kit indeed. The cockpit is already looking great, good start. And, what is the wingspan of your beauty? And they say size doesn't matter ;-). Good luck with your build and have fun, will follow with interest.

Hi fabian!

The wingspan is almost 60cm!  Compare with lenght "just" 40 ;-)

Actually i looked for the Monogram 1/48 scale first but that would just have been near impossible to display..he he


The cockpit and crew area is rather nice for the scale and being Academy :-) Id say this kit is a go!

Time for a short update!

Time to construct the bomb bay, here I wanted to do some painting and masking to make it look as there was internal details in the fusalage.
I painted with green first and then with strips of masking tape try to get some ribbing effects. :-)


This how it looks after demasking... it does look very convincing after the shadowing.
Problem is that the lights or flash from camera doesnt do the effect justice.




Testfitting again..and it looks promising :-)


Cockpit is ready to meet the fusalage..


Decal insruments will work fine since it will hard to see anything after closing the fusalage



I still feel happy with the oob cockpit :-) It will do fine


Next update I will close and glue the fusalage, that will be a test since the seam is looooong.

Thanks for watching and your encouraging comments!

Very nice start mate, it looks like it has nice detail. Can you imagine crawling through that tunnel as the plane came under attack, it would be terrifying.

Excellent work Joakim. I really like the shading on the interior bulkheads and sides. Nice detailing for a 1/72 scale kilt. But then again, it's still huge at that scale. Good luck and welcome.

Ron.
