Dragon DRW55756 USAAF Boeing B-29 Superfortress Heavy Bomber - "Battln' Beauty", 25th Bombardment Squadron, 40th Bombardment Group, Rangoon, 1944 (1:400 Scale) "Why should we have a navy at all? There are no enemies for it to fight except apparently the Army Air Force."
- General Carl Spaatz, Commander of the US 8th Army Air Force, after WWII

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was unquestionably the most famous and formidable bombing aircraft of the Second World War. During the War, these bombers were primarily used in the Pacific theater. The first Boeing B-29 bomber entered into service for the US Air Force in September 1943 and the last B-29 retired from service in September 1960. Over the years, a total of 1620 B-29 aircraft were built by Boeing at its Wichita, Kansas plant. Powered by four Wright R-3550 'Star-Engines', an enormous load of remotely controlled ammunition, fuel, bombs and a pressurized compartment for a crew of 13 could be carried as far as 6000 miles and as high as 30,000 feet at a maximum speed of 357 mph.

This particular 1:144 scale replica of a B-29 Superfortress, nickamed "Battln' Beauty", was attached to the 25th Bombardment Squadron, 40th Bombardment Group. Comes with a collector tin. One piece left in stock!
