Boeing B-29 Superfortress T Square 54 Diecast Model
Boeing's four-engine, propeller-drive B-29 Superfortress was one of the largest aircraft used during World War II. The world's most advanced bomber at that time, it featured three pressurized crew cabins, which allowed for high-altitude flight, remotely operated machine gun turrets, and a maximum bomb load of 20,000 pounds.
