B-47 Stratojet Model

The project involved the construction of a metal model of a B-47 Stratojet as a memorial for an accident that occurred near Hurley, Wisconsin in 1961. See plaque in last photo. The body was constructed from tubing that was cut to create the taper. The engines were turned on a lathe. The wings were made from steel plate.
