THe B-49D was the first variant of the B-49 series with the capability of carrying two Hound Dog misslile under the wing.  For that reason, the "D" was affectionately called "Elvis's" by there crews.  The B-49D kept watch over America's sky's from 1959 - 1971 was the primary nuclear alert aircraft.


Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.


You the man Steve, it looks superb.  I have a video all about the Northrop flying wings which has made me a big fan.................yours looks awesome :D

From the ceiling.... Heck, with this model I can imagine a dirty pass at an airshow, all the gear and flaps and doors wide open for the non-believers!

Fantastic paint work. When I grow up I wanna be able to do a natural finish too.

I gotta admire that wing..toooooooooo cool! The history of the Flying Wing really deserves to be fully done out in models...I did the RCAF Basselope myself...it was a beast to paint, bit it's one of my proudest what-if's...
Your paint scheme is fantastic..excellent execution!
