――The second collaboration project between Beaver Corporation and Fox One Design is a reciprocating-powered high-speed bomber that was born between the transition between reciprocating aircraft and jet aircraft and was not officially adopted only as a prototype.

[Overview of actual machine]
--The XB-42 is a prototype bomber developed by Douglas Aircraft in the United States during World War II.
--Douglas was initially developing with its own funds, but the U.S. Army Air Forces provided insurance (positioned as a successor) when the development of the B-29, which was also under development, failed. The development plan was presented in March, and we received orders for two prototypes and one airframe structure tester.
--Since development had been in progress before the order from the military, the first flight was successful on May 6, 1944.
――The concept of the aircraft is to eliminate air resistance as much as possible, and since the towed propeller disturbs the airflow around the aircraft and increases the resistance, we have adopted a propulsion propeller that places the propeller at the rear of the aircraft. ..
――In addition, the most distinctive canopy in appearance is a normal canopy, which causes air resistance, so the water drop type canopy was divided into two and installed in parallel.
――By arranging the two canopies in parallel, it was to reduce air resistance and secure the pilot's visibility, but it was unpopular with the pilot because it was not possible to communicate quickly between pilots in an emergency, so this shape was later It is obsolete.
――The propeller adopts a counter-rotating type, and the deflection of the wake of the propeller can be offset by a combination of forward and reverse rotation, so the vertical stabilizer can be miniaturized, air resistance is reduced, and propeller efficiency is improved. was.
--The XB-42 set a speed record with an average speed of 704 km / h on a cross-American flight from Long Beach to Washington, DC in December 1944, demonstrating high-speed performance, but after World War II it bombed a reciprocating engine. There was no place for the aircraft to play an active role, and the XB-42 was never officially adopted.

[Product Summary]
――The 1/144 XB-42, which was precisely modeled with a 3D printer, reproduces the characteristic parallel canopy that sits side by side with transparent parts.
-The contra-rotating propeller and each detail are also precisely reproduced.
-Decals are also included.
* The product in the image is a prototype and has been painted. The pedestal is not included.

――This product is a resin kit.
――It is necessary to shape the sprue and burrs for assembly. At that time, various tools are required.
――Parts are very fine and thin.
--Please be careful not to damage or lose it when assembling.
* For intermediate and advanced users.
* This product is made by a 3D printer.
* Absolute ethanol is suitable for cleaning parts, but please avoid using it.
* Generally, it is recommended to wash with a neutral detergent. Also, cleaning with acetone may erode parts.
