AMT / Ertl Northrop B-35 in 1/72 Scale

This is the AMT / Ertl X/YB-35, a very large kit when built, but a unique subject.  This kit takes some work, think of it as a limited run effort and you will be well prepared.  I opened up the wing leading edge inlets and the wing slots at the tips.  I also detailed the interior and wheel wells.  The starboard drag rudder was scratchbuilt so it could be displayed in the opened position.  All the gun stations were armed with Quickboost barrels.  The finish is Alclad, six different shades in total.  A build thread is posted to this blog for anyone wanting to see details of the construction process.

  1. Well… I found a few words Jeff…nice shades of Alclad. I have just used my airbrush with silver acrylic paint. I won’t have different shades, maybe on some other projects when I have more experience with my Badger 350.
