Sleek and serious, this 1940s U.S. Heavy Bomber Plane means big business. Modeled on bomber planes from the WWII era, this model plane measures 13.25 inches long and 21.25 wide. The model features a clean silver paint, iron construction, army air corp markings, and four rotating props with red and bronze colored details. Notice the pin-up girl on the nose of the plane? That’s American actress Mae West from the 1928 play Diamond Lil. An emblem of good fortune that lends this model a gritty realism and vintage flair.
Heavy bombers are hands down the most powerful and largest military aircraft at any point in time. They boast the longest range and largest payload of air-to-ground weaponry of their kind.
In WWI, the largest German bombers could carry a payload of up to 4,400 pounds of bombs. By WWII, British bombers could carry 14,000 pounds of boom-boom. As mass production techniques rocketed up the quantity of heavy bombers available, these large, long-range planes came to dominate the tactical bombing role.
