The Convair B-58 Hustler was the first operational jet bomber capable of Mach 2 supersonic flight and was developed for the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command in the late 1950s.The B-58 is extremely expensive and was reported that each B-58As costs much more than its weight in gold. It is a complex aircraft requiring considerable maintenance, requiring specialized equipment. On January 16, 1970, the last B-58s in operational service retired and was replaced by the FB-111A. A total of 116 B-58s were produced; 30 trial aircraft and 86 production B-58A models. A number of B-58s were used for special trials of various kinds and several variants such as the B-58B and B-58C were proposed by Convair, but were never built. This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
