"FLYING WING OVER THE FATHERLAND" B-35-ETO 1946 16 Sep 2019 09:40 #1

Okay I have been wanting to do this for a while. So here goes. I will be building the AMT YB-35 Flying wing in WW II colors. The gun turrets will need to be completed, but I think it will look cool if I can pull it off.

Here's the kit....



I want to do a OD scheme sort of like this.



I can just see a flight of these bombers heading to Germany escorted by P-80 Shooting Stars.

Not going to have invasion stripes. This was the only OD rendering I could find.

BAMN, and the Strategic Air Command is formed much earlier and plays a far greater roll in the invasion of...Spain, because the allies couldn't breach the Atlantic Wall. :coolio

Invasion stripes are cool, wasn't trying to talk you out of it.

After all the other starts I have lined up...:bangs head

Let's see, since I've gotten so distracted from work.
Bradley was killed on Utah when went ashore, against orders, to rally troops.
Mark Clark is stalled in the Alps.
Patton is leading the amphib assault on southern Spain from Oran and Algiers...

Naw no invasion of Spain we have enough fascists to deal with. Invasion of southern France goes ahead. Allied landings successfully out flank the Germans along the Atlantic wall. Bomber command used low yield atomic devices to stop German response. France threatens to go over to the Germans in protest.
