Another model built for a customer. This one is older then dirt. The box and kit looks like they are from the 50s. Many raised panel lines and rivets. 

However for the most part it builds pretty good. I put in a huge amount of nose weights, but it seems it was not enough. So I used the kit included ladder to keep it from being a tail sitter.

The customer provided decals from kit world, they went on just fine over the 5 different metal shades I used to paint this model.

First time I have built a B-29, surprised just how big this aircraft was.
