providing for slightly longer wings (hence improved, right?)

but even less spectacular than the previous one
(but then maybe it makes it more tricky to detect?)





so I added a few bananas (miniature, plastic) to spice it up, using the tractor in the kit

I like those bananas to carry: this is not a killing bomber but a saver plane providing food to hungry people... ;D

Ahah, so the SUNDERLAND will end up with the B-50 wings then?  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Sunderling?

Looking at the bananana trolleys and their little tractor has taken me back to building one as a youth.  Make me almost want to seek one out.  Did all the Airfix releases have the tractor?

AFAIK yes, and the trolleys too.

Not to mention LOTS of bombs to sit on the trolleys.
