The old Revell or Monogram 1/48 B-29 included both the Fat Man and Little Boy atomic bombs.

Or if you are looking for 50s Cold War era nukes, Monogram's F-84F and F-84G kits each come with one.

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

There're 1/48th models of Fat Man and Little Boy in Monogram/Revell's B-49 Superfortress.  The first A-bomb tested at Los Alamos didn't have a ballistic casing... It was just a round "ball" surrounded with wires and suspended from the tower...

"The Gadget"- Trinity Test Bomb, 1945

Trinity Test Tower @ White Sands Proving Ground, July, 1945

"Fat Man & Little Boy"

I don't know of any tower kits, but you can get Plastruct Structural Shapes and scratch-build it pretty easily..

I wonder if I'd get into trouble if I scratchbuilt these in a 1:1 scale and set them in the front or bac k yards as conversation pieces. I'm thinking I would.

I think they'd make BBQ pits...

I doubt you'd get in trouble... I got a friend that built me three missles in 1:1 scale, a Hellfire, a Sidewinder, and a Phoenix...  Had them hanging from the ceiling in the bar we partnered in and the cops never blinked an eye... 'Course, they kinda knew me...

Hello,

I am resurrecting this thread to present you a new model kit of Little Boy in 1/10 scale.

This model is the most accurate model of LB you could find, it is based on the latest research works on the subject. 

Here are more infos about it :

Interesting kit. Kind of telling that they find it cheaper to hand letter the parts bags over printed stickers unless this was just the rollout. That's quite a quality instruction guide.

A number Army Viet Nam scans from hundreds yet to be done:

Now, that is one heck of an instruction manual and one heck of a model.

Hi,

That is a frighteningly detailed model.  I almost wish it were set up so that you could build it to show a cut-away cross section of the interior parts.
