     Revell's enormous 1/48th scale Rockwell B-1B Lancer. I sold a lot of old 1/72nd scale kits off in 2005 and used the proceeds to purchase this from a local Hobby Shop. It was only 40 GBP which is pretty cheap these days for something so large. I have no idea where I am going to put it if I do build it. Hence it will spend a lot of time in the attic. I suspect most of them do. There is a small variety of aftermarket accessories available including:

 

  • Eduard ED48325 Photoetch set

  • Eduard Exhaust ED48499

  • Cutting Edge CEC48389 Turkey Feather Exhausts

  • Two Bobs Decals TB48058 B-1B Operation Iraqi "Freedom" (3) 86-138/EL "Seek and Destroy" amongst others

  • Scale Aircraft Conversions white metal undercarriage (48072)
