Park Scale Models is pleased to offer the Martin B-57 Canberra, a 1/12 scale EDF powered balsa model kit.
The Martin B-57 Canberra is an American-built, twinjet tactical bomber and reconnaissance aircraft that entered service with the United States Air Force (USAF) in 1953. The B-57 ia a variant of the British English Electric Canberra that was built under license by the Glenn L. Martin Company, a total of 403 aircraft were built in several variants.
Utilizing the same interlocking / self aligning Accu-Lock™ design priciples found in all other Park Scale Models designs, the B-57 Canberra requires absolutely NO PLANS to build over! The Accu-Lock™ design system ensures a faster, straighter and lighter build then you ever thought possible. The B-57 kit contains all laser cut parts, carbon fiber wing rods, brass wing tubes and rare earth magnets, sheeting is NOT included with the kit. The kit can also be easily built as the English Electric Canberra with minor modifications, but would require a custom canopy.
One of Park Scale Models overriding design rules has always been 'inexpensive to build and equip'...and the Martin B-57 is no exception. The Canberra is dsigned for 68-70mm EDFs and can be built with retracts or fixed landing gear. Removable wings make the B-57 easy to transport or store.
Wing Span: 64"”
Wing Area: ~960 sq.in.
Wing Loading: ~24 oz/sq.ft.
Suggested Power System(s): 68-70mm EDF
To help with the completion of your B-57 Canberra kit, I am pleased to offer the following add-on option:
Pre-Cut Planking: Get your Canberra built even faster with pre-cut planking. Carefully engineered and laser cut for a precise fit, the pre-cut planking requires almost no trimming and easily reduces planking time by more than 50%! Multiple pre cut planking options allow you to get only the pre cut planking you want.
