This just finished. Well, I'm calling it.
Many, many years ago...1979 I was a young naive Highlander at College in the big city of Edinburgh and on my first weekend there The Playhouse had a late night Friday showing of:-
This is the Revell 1/144 scale B-52G. This was built for a gentleman at work who actually was part of the air crew on this 51st Bomber Squadron B-52G. The specific squadron decals and the base decal we made by myself. It was painted off of a ph[...]
