AMT Boeing B 52 conversion

I bought several of the AMT kits when they were released, they molded an early G, but not an early H. I decided to convert a late H to early, not so hard to do, slight remodelling of the nose and removal of ecm bumps here and there. The [...]

Monogram B-52C

I built this kit in 1980 as a camouflaged Vietnam aircraft, then decided to re-paint as the C model included on the old microscale sheet about ten years ago. Well recently it lost a few wheels so decided to repair it, picked it up and [...]

So what's everyone using for dayglo these days?

I got the great Atlantis B-52 X-15 re-pop for Christmas, and am looking for a good fluorescent orange/red-orange to use. I know there are more choices out there these days, so any favorites? Rob

NB-52 with X-15, Atlantis

This is Atlantis models reissue of the old Revell 1/174 kit. Not to much detail, there never was, but they did provide two types of stands and improved the decals. You can also choose to use the external fuel tanks for a SAC version, ala [...]

1/48th Boeing B-52H Stratofortress - update

It's been a while since I updated you on my progress with Sanger's massive 1/48th scale vacuform B-52H project. Since last time I've worked on the fuselage, scratch-building the main undercarriage bays, as well as adding numerous [...]
