This 4-engined delta wing bomber came into service with the US Strategic Air Force at the beginning of the 60s and was, at that time, the pinnacle of technology. The B-58 could reach supersonic speeds even at full load and was specifically designed to carry nuclear weapons so as to provide a fast response to a Soviet attack, which, back in the Cold War of the 50s, was considered a constant threat. Kit includes decals for 6 versions. Paint colors needed: FS36300 Flat Light Ghost Gray, FS11302 Gloss Red, FS17875 Gloss White, FS37038 Flat Black, FS35237 Flat Dark Ghost Gray, FS37200 Flat Gunmetal, FS17178 Gloss Silver, FS33481 Flat Green Zinc Chrome, FS34084 Flat Olive Drab US Army, and FS37178 Flat Aluminum.
