1/72 JS-23 Hasegawa Boeing B-47E Stratojet - USAF SAC
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+
Older and well detailed with fine raised fine panel lines, cockpit, optional opened or closed bomb bay doors, internal iron bomb load, tail "stinger", detailed landing gear and gear wells and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box displays slightly better than the grade. It is rated as such because there are short pieces of masking tape one each side. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use of mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.
