Vintage Kyo b-36 convair!!

A true collector item, the holy grail of vintage Japanese collector kits. You are looking at a KYO B-36 Convair. I have inspected this kit and have determined that even though this box is open, the kit is complete and has not been started or molested in any way. This is an excellent kit in excellent condition. This bird is extremely rare. I have searched all over the internet for any information about this kit. Rare and valuable are the only two words that describe it. The canopies are still wrapped in 1940's Japanese newspaper that are dated 1-21-1946!!. If you have questions, please contact me.
Looking this 1940's kit over, the kit is new.
B-36 Spec's: 112 1/2" W.S. 78" length .15/.19 engines X 6 engines. This is the non-jet B-36 Convair. The kit comes with shock absorber type gear. There is a similar kit listed on feebay for $1699, this perfect, unmolested kit is yours for $850 with free shipping to the lower 48.

B-36

This is a excellent kit and if Neil says it is complete you can bet it is.
I have one of these as well.
These were C/L kits I built one and flew it back in the early 70s on 70 foot lines it is a hard puller back in the day used Fox 29 engines.
I bet in todays world good new 15s would get the job done.

you might want to run a Geiger counter over that news paper and check for radiation! It seams a bit odd that the Japs would build an RC plane shortly after the real deal decimated their country side with the two nuclear bombs... lol

Sorry, no. Those were B29's, not B36's that nuked Japan. The B36's came a bit later. Reeeeeeally nice kit, would make a great conversion to electric.

If you want to see what Germany looked like after the war, when our bombers got finished with it go to DETROIT, I know I live in Michigan, but far away from DETROIT.

I'm sad to say I still call Detroit "home" as I was born there - haven't been back in 35 plus years .
