My apologies if this isn't the proper place to post this. :oops:

I was perusing the Hobby Link Japan web site and came across this beast: https://hlj.com/product/HPH48046L

It is a December 2017 release (and is showing as Out of Stock), is resin and fiberglass, and has a nice set of PE parts. Oh, it is only $1,122 USD ( 935 Euros). :shock: I built a 1/72 plastic kit of the B-36 and cannot imagine how big or heavy this kit might be.

I'd need an extension, the Albert Hall should do.

Looks like it's about a life time supply of modelling in one box! Not really my cup-o-tea.

That is pretty cool - maybe Airfix will take it on in 1/24!

Some madmen had a 1/48th B-36 kit on display (unbuilt) at SMW in November, I'm not sure if it was these guys or some other certifiable loons, but in that scale it's big. Bigger than big - in fact I may have flown in smaller light aircraft :ha:

Having built two 1/72nd scale ones, a 48th scale one just sounds insane!. And I want one but won't ever be able to get one!!. The 72nd scale ones are something like 3 feet wide and not much less long! :shock: .

It's pretty awesome, as I'm sure you can imagine, and the detail is top notch. If only I had the room....... :roll:

The HPH Models web site has some nice pics of their other kits. If you would rather have something..smaller. :roll: ;-)
