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.

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!
