Description Extended Information
 
Altaya AB56 USAAF Boeing B-29 Superfortress Heavy Bomber (1:144 Scale) "I have become death, the destroyer of worlds."
- Atomic Bomb Scientist Robert Oppenheimer, reciting a text from an ancient Hindu scripture after witnessing the Trinity test explosion

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress (Boeing Model 341/345) was a four-engine heavy bomber flown by the United States Army Air Force. It was one of the largest aircraft of World War II to see active service. When it entered service, it was one of the most advanced bombers of its time, featuring innovations such as a pressurized cabin, a central fire-control system, and remote-controlled machine gun turrets. It was designed to be a high altitude daytime bomber, but was most used in low-altitude night time incendiary bombing. It was the primary weapons platform used in the United States fire-bombing campaign against Japan in the final months of World War II, and B-29s carried the atomic bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Unlike many other bombers, the B-29 remained in service long after World War II ended, a few being employed as flying television transmitters for Stratovision. By the time it was retired in the 1960s, some 3,900 planes had been built.
