1:144 Scale   Length   Width
Boeing B-29 Superfortress   8.25"   11.75"

History was made on August 6th 1945 when the Enola Gay dropped the first atomic bomb, code-named "Little Boy", that destroyed the Japanese city of Hiroshima. An eleven man crew flew the mission from Tinian Island led by Colonel Paul Tibbetts who named the plane after his mother. Although disassembled in 1960 the plane is now fully restored and on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC.

This 1:144 scale, diecast replica beautifully depicts "Enola Gay," the most sophisticated, propeller-driven World War II bomber that dropped the first atomic bomb, "Little Boy," on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Collectors will marvel at details which include rotating props, rubber tires, glazed windows, intricate landing gear, and a metal stand for in-flight display of the plane heading towards its mission.

Boeing B-29 Superfortress

Designed to meet an American need for a very heavy, long range bomber, the B-29 Superfortress was first flown on September 21st, 1942. The USAAF's intent in building the B-29 was to have an aircraft that was capable of winning the war through sheer destructive power-by destroying the enemy homeland. This mid-wing bomber had four 3,500 horsepower Pratt & Whitney engines. It required a crew of 10 specialists and gunners and had a sophisticated weapons system that included guns mounted in electrically powered turrets in the dorsal, ventral and tail positions. The guns were operated by internal periscope systems.
