The only game in town for a 1/72 B47
By jimmbbo February 20, 2016
As the first US all-jet bomber in squadron service, the B-47 was an historically important airplane that can't get no respect from model manufacturers. With at least nine releases since the 1960s, the antique Hasegawa B-47 has been around since the dinosaurs that turned into petroleum for plastic roamed the earth, and attempting to build it reveals how long in the tooth it is. The lack of cockpit and landing gear bay detail is common for its age, but is woefully inadequate compared to today's kits, and the fit is typical of older Hasegawa kits... Terrible. With all that in mind, it is the ONLY GAME IN TOWN for a modeler who wants a 1/72 B-47, and if you have some modeling skills that include the patience and ability to fit, sand, fill, sand, fill and encouraging parts to fit, and can handle preparing the model and applying a natural metal finish, a stunning model CAN be built. Without those skills, a modeler is opening the box on a frustrating build. If a modeler is able to wrestle this kit to the ground and overcome its problems, its impressive size makes it an attractive addition to the collection. RECOMMENDATION QUALIFICATION - MODELING SKILLS AND PATIENCE REQUIRED...

Great for the price
By jimreynolds54 February 18, 2016
This is one of Hasegawa's oldest current kits, dating from the 1960s. As such there are some molding issues, with poor fit on some parts and a fair amount of flash. It will take some sanding and filling to get it to look right, this is especially critical since you will want to simulate the natural metal finish on most of the airframe. Details are a little sparse, but the landing gear and cockpit are good. It makes up into a very large and impressive model, about 18 inches long. Combine that with the low price and you have a winner, if you are willing to put the work into it.

Good Kit and Easy Build
By tlecle March 23, 2016
This is a very good kit to build. There is not much flashing or need for sanding. All parts fit well together. However, there is not much detail applied to the cockpit area or engines. But overall, very good kit.

B-47
By weimard June 29, 2016
Parts fitted well and assembly instructions were good, however painting instructions were a bit lacking in detail
