Default Where to buy this kind of plane ?

I would like to buy a nice giant scale war bird like in [link=http://users.skynet.be/Logion/Prophex/Bomber.wmv]this[/link] movie or some other multi-engine-giant-scale warbird, but I've got no idea where to buy one.

Could you guys recommend me any online shop to buy a plane like that ?

thx,
Prophex

Several kit manufactures have multi engine war brids.
The B-29 Superfortress in the video, looks to be from a DON SMITH plan at 169" W.S.
The web site is http://www.donsmithplans.com/.
Hope this helps.

first you should be more than an expert for buliding/flying/designing such an aircraft.

try KMP at canada, they have nice WW2 models and some are on sale/special prices !!!!!

I think that B-29 with the flying X-1 with rocket motor is Mac Hodge's plane. That one spans 20 feet (240") I believe. I have seen it fly numerous times and most recently watched him HOVER it. Flat spins, hammer heads, and very, very, very low inverted passes with the tail maybe 3-4 feet off the ground. I think you have to build one scaled up from somebody's plans.
