The B-29 Superfortress is a four-engine propeller-driven heavy bomber. It was one of the largest aircraft to see service in World War II and a very advanced bomber for its time, with features such as a pressurized cabin, an electronic fire-control system, and remote-controlled machine-gun turrets. Originally the B-29 was designed as a high-altitude daytime bomber, but it was used extensively in low-altitude night-time incendiary bombing missions. It was the primary aircraft used in the American firebombing campaign against the Empire of Japan in the final months of World War II and was used to carry out the atomic bombings that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
This specific B-29 model is painted as "Lucky 'Leven", Clinton Rogers' airplane. He was part of the 73rd Bomb Wing and was stationed on the island of Saipan; Rogers and his crew flew 39 bombing missions over Japan and other Pacific islands.

When it comes to selling in stock products, we are no difference from many other Internet retailers, but we take pride in going extra miles to do something special for you: Have some products custom made for you.
We cannot do everything, but we usually can accommodate a certain changes in product options such as color, size, material, or minor design twist. We primarily work with vendors or factories, not individual artist or craftsman. For custom made products, we usually only cater to bulk size order that meets the minimum quantity requirement of a single factory run. Don't be shy. Ask. What we can accomplish may surprise you!
