Commander Models does a resin one in 1/35th I would like to get!



There is a cute little 1/48th version as part of the old Revell B-24 kit, but an expensive way to get it

Cheers, D

I had that very kit when it was in grade school. The tractor was my favorite part!

Another hand stitched 3 image montage. (Of course there is software to do this today.)



Experimental B-58 ejection pod.

Even with the automated stitching software of today some thought needs be given when taking you original photo set.

As seen earlier in the photo of the V-2 rocket; if you move laterally as you take your sequence of photos, staying at a uniform distance from your subject, you will produce what is more or less known as a "normal" focal length image with a flat field of view.

However if you stay in the same location and simply rotate your view to cover the entire subject you will produce something more approximating a "wide angle" photograph with the associated distortion of a curved field of view as in my photo of the B-58.
