This B-29 Superfortress Model Airplane is a scale model of the original B-29 “Bockscar” aircraft. This B-29 Superfortress aircraft “Bockscar” was named after the pilot Captain Frederick C. Bock. The Bockscar USAF bomber is noted for dropping the “Fat Man” nuclear weapon over Nagasaki, Japan on August 9, 1945. It is now on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio.
This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
