Review by Modeling madness

-1/144 Northrop B2 Bomber

Skill level: 3
Scale: 1:144
Length: 146 mm
Wingspan: 364 mm
Parts: 32

The B-2 bomber was developed as a successor to the outdated B-52 and as an alternative to the unfavourable B-1 bomber. A special, absorbing coating renders the Stealth bomber invisible to radar. The first flight took place at the Edwards AFB on 17.7.1989. Four General Electric F 118-GE 100 engines give the B-2 a maximum speed of 764 km/h at a service altitude in excess of 15,000 metres. Its range when fully laden is 10.00 km, or about 19,000 km with air refuelling.

-Some Techniques that will help when making your model Plane

 Dry Brushing-

We talk a little about what dry brushing is and how to will massively help bring out detail in certain parts of an aircraft. We go on to talk about what you will need and how to execute this fine art.

 Paint Chipping Effect-

In this section we go over how to give your model plane the paint chips that would be seen on a some what dated plane in its original era. We talk about where this usually happens on the plane as well as how to get this effect to work in your favor.

Bringing out your panel lines and more-

Lastly we cover a technique and skill that will help bring out your panel lines rivet holes and much more. Not only do we talk about how to use this skill but also things you can do if it is not working “just right”

So I hope this was able to help out our new modelers to know what kind of scale model airplanes there is out there. As well as show off some of the companies that I think do a fantastic job when it comes to realistic planes with high detail. Also I hope that I was able to share some tips that even our advanced listeners are able to use and maybe grow on when they are building their next model plane. If you have any other suggestions for this topic like something I missed or a better way to do it, Or other ideas on things you would like us to go over, please share that with me so I may keep coming back with quality information for all of us to use. Thanks again!
