YB-49 Flying Wing, Metallic Skin (1:200) by DragonWings 200 Diecast Airliners
Item Number: DRW52012
The Warbirds series from Dragon has contributed a novel new aircraft for collectors! The new item is a 1/200 scale model of the Northrop YB-49, a prototypical heavy bomber conceived soon after WWII. One look at the futuristic design will enable viewers to understand why it'_s often referred to as the 'Flying Wing'.
The YB-49 was a radical design, and Warbirds has created a model that is every bit as striking! What'_s remarkable about this model is its incredibly lifelike 'metallic skin'. The normal method to reproduce such a shiny finish would be to simply add a thin layer of metallic paint to the structure underneath. However, Dragon has adopted an entirely fresh approach for the YB-49 by employing an innovative new technology. In actual fact, the whole underlying raw material of this model is permeated by metallic silver coloring. The model doesn'_t have an application of paint on its surfaces - for the entire model is silver -and this has resulted in an even more spectacular layering of shadows and highlights. This shiny model is simply dazzling, with its beauty being far more than just skin deep!
