[Outline of actual machine]
-The XB-51 is a high-speed bomber that was prototype-ordered in the United States in 1946.
-First flight in 1949, one of the test pilots [Chuck Jaeger, the first man in the world to exceed the speed of sound], also participates as a pilot.
-Although the low-flying performance was highly evaluated as an aircraft, it was decided not to be adopted for two prototypes in 1952 due to problems with the landing gear and aircraft strength.
-It is a three-engine aircraft unique to the military aircraft, two jet engines are attached to the lower side of the cockpit, and one is located at the tail.
-The tail engine air intake is located in front of the vertical tail.
-As for armament, various bombs of 4000 pounds (1814 kg) can be mounted in a rotary bomb tank inside the aircraft, and 8 20 mm machine guns are mounted on the underside of the nose as fixed armament (only prototype 2 is installed).
-There were two crew members, and the cockpit was a fighter-like bubble canopy. The crew was divided into front and rear, the former responsible for piloting, the latter for bombing and navigation.
-The main leg is a tandem type with double wheels on the underside of the fuselage, and auxiliary legs are installed on the main wing side.
-This was also the first Martin aircraft to have an ejection seat.
-Parts are accurately molded by a 3D printer so there is no worry of shrinkage.
-Accurately reproduce the landing gear and bomb tank, and the open/close state of the bomb tank is also selectable.
-In addition, you can choose from two types of bombs to equip.
-The canopy is reproduced with clear parts, the landing gear is a selection type of parking state and flight state, and the auxiliary legs of both wings are also reproduced.
-Although instant adhesive is used for assembly, there are also guides on the wings, etc. for ease of assembly.
*The image is a prototype.
-This product is a resin kit.
-It is necessary to shape the sprue and burrs for assembly. At that time, various tools are required.
-Some parts are very fine and thin.
-Be careful not to damage or lose it when assembling.
*For intermediate and advanced users.
*This product is made by 3D printer.
*Anhydrous ethanol is suitable for cleaning the parts, but avoid using it.
* Generally, we recommend cleaning with a neutral detergent. Also, cleaning with acetone may erode the parts.
