The Boeing B-29 was the most complex aircraft of the first part of the century. Service delivery of the B-29 began in 1944, with the first combat mission flown on June 5, 1944. This specific B29 model is painted as "Enola Gay, " which was the aircraft that dropped the atomic bomb "Little Boy" during the final stages of World War II.
This model is personally signed by Theodore "Dutch" Van Kirk, Enola Gay Navigator, and Morris Jeppson, Weapons Test Officer. Unfortunately Jeppson passed away in March 2010, leaving Van Kirk as the last living survivor from the crew. Certificate of Authenticity included.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
6,000 + (and growing) factories in our existing network are eager to make it for you.
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!
