This is my Anigrand 1/72 scale XB-51, which was my first
all-resin aircraft kit.
It went together very nicely. There were a few pin holes to fill
but this would be expected with an all resin kit. Parts fit was
generally good considering that it is a short run resin kit.
Basic modeling skill is all it takes to assemble one of these
I used True Details' 1/48 Avenger wheels for the main gear.
Painting and Markings
The model was painted with Alclad II with a base cote of Mr.
Future was applied before decals and after decals then a mixture
of 50% Testors Glosscote and 50% Testors Dullcote was sprayed on.
Weathering was kept light with just an oil wash and pastels applied
with a Q-tip.
I would say that any one who has built a few models and wants
something different should not be afraid to try one of Anigrand's
Some might have trouble with the vacuform canopy but with
patience and care it shouldn't cause trouble.
I hope you will like it as much as I did in building it.
