Some of the internal scenes aboard the B-29 were filmed in the only remaining example that is still capable of flight. That one belonged to the Confederate Air Force, which is now called the Commemorative Air Force due to political correctness. See more »
The test bombs approximating "Fat Man," whose shape is unmistakable, must have been smaller because at the time of test drops at Wendover, they are shown in this film all fitting inside the closed bomb bay doors of the Wendover B-29, when the Nagasaki "Bock's Car" B-29 used a specially shaped door with a cut out to permit closure and a tight fit around the bomb's 60" girth.

Hiroshima is a great film, originally made for cable, about events leading up to the A-bomb being dropped on Japan. It shows the Japanese perspective very well and is one of the better WW2 films of recent years. Surprisingly, it is mostly a Canadian production that is very accurate with the facts they put on screen. Very well done.
