Default 1/72 EB-47, Hasegawa ... USN, indeed...

This one took me a lot of time, but after all, here I am again - Hasegawa kit with some Pavla models replacements and quite a bunch of scratch built... Well, after almost a year spent on this beast I'm looking forward for something much more simple... That said, I have no list of corrections made by hand, so feel free to ask, or point me to any mistake yo'll see..

Mmm... no pictures and I don't know why. Anybody to point where the problem is?

Until I'll sort this out, here is the preview:

It looks like the URL used for sharing images is a redirect that goes to a web page. It needs to be the URL of the actual photo, likely ending in ".jpg".

That said - WOW! The photos look great! Fantastic job!

Thank you! I totally missed the .jpg part. I remember Picasa to be user friendly, but now... :/ Just hope the workaround I found isn't temporal...

Not sure... Very few pictures is all I have. In fact, I would be very happy to find out anything about 47's service with Navy.

This time I've tried something different - mainly Mr. Color C8 Silver, for random spots toned down with black. Usually I go with Mr.Color Super Metallic line of colors.

If you google "China Lake B-47" you can find info on it.

I just remember going on det to China Lake in Jan 86 and there was an old B-47 sitting off to one corner of the flight line. Looking on line it looks like it was flown to Castle AFB in June of 86.

I noticed the VF-84 zapper you put on the tail, can't remember if VF-84 had zapped it, they weren't on det with us at the time.

Do you know why the Navy had a B-47? Testing something, or just passing through and broke down, maybe? Anybody know the story here. IICR, the Navy barrowed two F-104s for the early Sidewinder missile high speed separation tests. Maybe the B-47 had some capability not in the Navy inventory at the time like simulation of high-speed Soviet bombers that carry anti-ship missiles. Just spit-ballin' here.

I don't know what she was doing there, from what I could gather on the interwebs she was a radar target.

Here's a link that has some info;

...Here's a bit more on the Navy version: (Of course, the 'E' in EB-47 says it all, along with that antenna array on the belly...the Navy designation is 'Electronic', and that was, in fact, the mission according to these sources below.) Doesn't look like your China Lake bird, Gerry...last flight for the two Navy jets was apparently 1977, and they were based out of Pt Mugu. Fascinating. Didn't realize the Navy ever flew the -47, even if just on "Permanent Loan" from the USAF.

...and not to forget...absolutely STUNNING build, Vladislav!
