Looks like a fine model Nobi! Any chance you'd want to make it into a US B-57? I have reference pics

I believe NOBI has that model, along with several others, in the planning stage.

I'll be watching to see if you do the long wing NASA variant. Always thought the regular Canberra was a good looking plane but just fell in love with that version the first time I saw it at the Pima Air Museum.

In the summer of 1970, I was sent to the transient area of Elmendorf AFB, to refuel a B-57. I thought that was strange, as the two EB-57s we had assigned to the base were always at the end of T-bird Row. But as I turned the corner in my big, yellow fuel truck, I caught sight of the bird and my eyes bugged out.

It was one of the most beautiful aircraft I had ever seen. It was gleaming silver in its natural metal state, but had a dark band across the vertical stabilizer that said, "WEATHER." And those wings!!!

It was a WB-57F, the first and only one I ever saw up close and personal. After I completed the refuel, I did a walk-around of the aircraft marveling at everything about it. Moments later, the pilot came out to pre-flight the aircraft and I hit him with a bunch of questions. Most of them he answered with the standard classified, can't discuss answer, but he did say it was a blast to fly.

I fell in love with the long winged B-57s at that moment. They all are gorgeous birds.

A long time ago the RNZAF had Canberra B(I) 8s - the British built Canberra was different from the B-57 in that it used Avon engines with a version of the old Kaufman starter. In the nose fairing of the engine were cordite cartridges which, when fired, spun up a small turbine to get the Avon turning. Just about needed an underwear change after seeing/hearing one of these start up for the first time.

They were great planes though. Even scored a "strike" on the USS Enterprise when it visited NZ in the 60s. Apparently the US carrier early warning of the time couldn't pick up a Canberra at very low level.

Regards,

Charlie

There's also a couple of them parked up at Falcon Field in Mesa (Ex RAF base oddly enough). Used to be one in Target Tug black and yellow stripes, but I didn't see it last week when I went by.
