    Are there any companies that make a card model of the B-1 and B-2 bombers? I can not locate any!

    Hobbymodel makes a B-1, they are a bit blunt but at 1:33 is a big one
    I havent seen it in a while but Ebay as usual is your best shot

    the B-2 has been released by the IAF magazine, maybe one of our israeli friends can help you out

    Try to find a copy of PAPER PLANES 2 by Michael Johnson, published by Grafton in 1991.
    This book has eight- die stamped full colour paper model aircraft, designed to fly, one of which is the B-2 with a wing span of 47 inches
    My son bought me two copies at a book remainder shop in Harrogate, Yorks, 3 years ago for the princely sum of 6.00 GBP!
    The book includesfull detailed construction details and tips
    (I am still looking for a copy of Paper Planes 1, written by the same author and Alan Austin)

    Hello again
    Re my earlier reply to your query
    As I have two copies of this book, (one originally I wanted to build and the other to keep), if you would like this model I will remove the pages that have the parts of the B-2,with the instruction page and post them to you (An early XMAS gift!!)
    (My interest is in aircraft only up to the 1950s)

    This seems to be a big topic lately. I have both the B1 from HobbyModel and the Israeli B2. I am working on getting the B1 recolored with Grand Forks Decals. This has been a slow process. But I do hope that some desiners look at this thread. I think they would find many people intrerested in these models. Plus the F-22 Raptor, YF-23 and the YF-35.

    Has anyone built the B-2 Stealth Bomber from PAPER PLANES 2 by Michael Johnson? If so, how good/accurate a model is it?

    Does anyone know where i can get a copy....i'd love a big B-2 Stealth Bomber. :)
