Diorama of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress

Here is a video tour of a Monogram kit I built for a customer of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress. This specific B-29 corresponds to serial number 44-68674. It was part of the 505th Bombardment Group; the 484th Squadron during World War II. The 505th Bombardment Group had a Circle with a “W” on the tail. The model was customized with its nose art and the names of the pilot and co-pilot.

On the model, I used chrome enamel paint, and panel sections were covered with aluminum foil. Weathering effects were added specifically around the engines and wings. Panel lines were accentuated using a #2 pencil. The diorama has a section of an airplane parking area, vegetation, and ground personnel.

Here is a video walkthrough:
