The B-29 Superfortress, an American-built heavy bomber introduced in May of 1944, was a popular Allied weapon most recognizable as the aircraft that dropped the atomic bombs over Japan in August of 1945. In addition to its service in World War II, it was also used by American forces in Korea. Nearly 4,000 were manufactured and it was not officially retired until the early 1960s.
Replicating "T-Square-54," a B-29 that completed 37 bombing missions in World War II and today remains on display at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, this 1/200 scale, die cast model features the aircraft's signature yellow accents, a see-through canopy, rotating propellers, a realistic gunner station, and a nameplate display stand. Measures approximately 6" long with an 8½" wingspan.
