    OK so when you see the picture it won't be hard to guess:grin:

    Nobi ain't a woofing when he says this one is " - Huge size (53.95 cm Length)"

    This will be one big model................. but as usual everything is going pretty good. Printed it out late last night and I have only had a little time to work on it this afternoon.

    But boy it will look go next to the Thunderceptor!

    Thanks Nobi!

    That's huge, man!

    It looks already a great model! From NOBI? No wonder!

    Here's a pic of the XB-51 from wikipedia:

    Don't tell me...I know...just a second...Ah! Got it! No, that's not it...ummm...shoot. If it wasn't printed on the nose I probably could have guessed it. :-D

    Should be a great model. Have fun!

    Well guys.......... I'm a child of the 50s so I've got this thing about that era jets............. Nobi seems to be scratching that itch very well.

    This one is big............. 13 pieces make up the fuselage............. not including internal formers.

    I'll post more pictures as I get things done..................

    Oh......... this is a new webcam..........it takes stills at 1024 x 768 and it has a button on top of the camera to do it............ got it off ebay, for the same price as I got the other. This one is a better camera so far:grin: Same brand CREATIVE..........just a little bit better camera.

    Man that looks good, and if the ego is open to praise, your building has come along very well John, I see an improvement in your technique with every build.

    OK........... I thought the Marauder was the plane of "no visible mean of support", but this one is a close second I think!
