"B-36"
woofdogmeow
This kit is uber old school and as such is a royal pain to build I am old school so I know how to deal with such kits and this one tested me. The gaps in the seams are huge you will need a lot of puddy to fill the gaps. The worst section is the main wings they do not go on in the usual way. Instead there is a huge cut out section of fuselage that the wings go into. There is no support to hold the wings on as the glue sets. So set aside a a large area on your table to rig up a support for the fuselage and wings. The The kit has no landing gear you have to mount it on its stand. The detail is very limited and has the stars marked on the plane in raised plastic lines which screw up the decals unless you sand them off. The plane has no guns which should be in the tail and over the nose. I didn't expect much from this kit but still I am disappointed.

"Nice Kit"
pedronmat
Fun kit for a quick easy build. Parts fit together nicely. No landing gear but ends up being a nice display with the clear swivel stand.

 
"Weird plane, cool"
nathans138
Got this after seeing a real one at the Tuscon Pima air museum. Kinda reminds me of the Hydra flying wing in Captain America with both props and jets. The model does not have a ton of detail - nothing interior at all. Simple, but looks cool. No landing gear - only in flight version.

 
"Great repop of 1950's molds with new base"
pfinan73
While a 'vintage' kit from the outset, the Atlantis B-36 has some challenges to be aware of. Flash and sprue relief is challenging in some small areas. The props must be trapped or if just stuck in they will fall out, just as easy to glue them in. No interior is available and the greenhouse canopy is a nice fit. The tail surface is a challenge to apply to the fuselage without CA as the contact area is minimal and model glue was not doing it. Not a very detailed model to be sure, no gun ports or even outlines for the hatches but the old-school nature of the subject is still fun. Recommended for patient modelers who don't expect too much from the 1950's molds.
