got the B-47 on the wall of steel... funny how small it looks next to the B-52 and B-36 all the same scale.




The glue has cured on the KC-130 when I feel brave I will try and putty/repaint.

LOL! It really does look tiny! Even though it's still quite a sizeable aircraft in itself.

Amazing collection there.
How do you go about mounting them on the wall?

cheers mate!, I get two plaster board anchors, the spring loaded kind both can take 13 kg each so an over kill but its secure

Then I form a loop of really light weight tie wire (some times even 0.8 solder wire) and wrap it round the fuse under the wing with a little play to hide the anchors.

November 2016 earth quake didn't even move them!
