Northrop-Grumman B2 Spirit

This started off as a beta build request from Aaron. The original scale is about 1/95 or 1/100. I have given it four attempts, first three printed on 2 pages on 1 pc of A4 paper, meaning about 70% of the original, and the fourth being reduced to 50% of the original. The first two attempts were failures because of either glue smudging on wing surface - too much handling or over-layering of thick paper to do the wings. That resulted in ugly wide open seams.

The third attempt, 70% of the original, that is about 1/135, is okay and will be shown if anyone is interested.

Anyway, what I'm showing as an entry to this contest is the 50% reduced version, about 1/200, with Dave Winfield's G75 tractor tug in the diorama. Some photoshopping was done to smooth out the seams on the top wing surface as it is quite frustrating to cut and glue the seams perfectly.

Other than this, as a beta build remarks, perhaps Aaron may wish to check out the position of the insignia on both the outer wings and patch up the white areas on the top wing surfaces. On my model, I painted them darker grey at the engine intakes and exhausts.

Did you know...that if you had documented this build at the cutandfold forum
your final model of the Tug (from my Diorama kits) along with the B2
it qualifies as a proper entry.
It even reflects my desire to see my models used in an interesting photo and/or
diorama type display. The use of another model (not mine) in the diorama is also
perfectly acceptable.

You didn't happen to take a photo of the start of the build...with a date? lol

Regardless, a fine looking build...even with the minor imperfections!

Thank you fellow members.

Dave, I didn't realize that I could enter it at your cutandfold forum and I thought everything has to be from your designs. No, I didn't keep any build pic of the tug but it was built the day before yesterday.

Just in case you are interested, the larger version (reduced 70% from the original) is shown here to show what it actually looks like as far as seams on the top surface of the wing are concerned. And, you can imagine the full size of the plane if you build it in its original scale.
