B-36 Peacemaker by Carl Bachhuber -- 230" wingspan
In April of 1941 the U.S. Army Air Corps proposes a heavy bomber capable of non stop missions in to Central Europe from bases in the United States. On Aug. 8, 1946 the Convair B-36 Peacemaker took to the sky for the first time.
The Peacemaker is the largest US bomber in history, only seeing service after WWII. Powered by six 28-cylinder radial engines and four turbojet engines, it had a total wing area of 4,772 sq. ft. The B-36 has four bomb bays with a total ordinance capacity of 86,000 lbs.
Carl's rendition is in 1/12th scale, 230” wingspan, approximately 98 pounds, powered by six Zenoah G-26’s.
