Anigrand Craftswork releases 1/144 YB-49

Anigrand Craftswork releases 1/144 YB-49Sticking with a brisk release schedule of some very interesting aircraft, Anigrand Craftswork announced their YB-49 kit release. In his email announcement, Anigrand’s Arnold Chiu says:

The Northrop YB-49 was the jet-powered flying wing bomber. It was a development of the piston-engined. The first aircraft flew in October 1947 and immediately proved more promising than its piston-engined counterpart. The YB-49 set both an unofficial endurance record of staying continually above 40,000 ft for six hours, and a trans-continental speed record. The flying wing bomber concept would remain dormant until the appearance of the Northrop B-2 stealth bomber nearly 40 years after the last flight of the YB-49.

Anigrand Craftswork’s 1/144 Northrop YB-49 is the most detailed scale model kit in the market with this scale. It comes with many high detailed precisely resin parts and decals, as well as the clear resin casting canopy. It also includes three 1/144 U.S. early-jet airplane kits as bonus.

As they’ve done with many of their most recent releases, this kit is not just one aircraft, but four. Cost is US$82 plus US$14 shipping.
