    For your first BIG model - you certainly were brave, she's HUGE at 1:33. Good job :thumb: I too am building this model {taking time with a skin condition which prevents long handling times of the card stock} i will get there in the end. If i knew you were making this, i could have up-loaded my up-graded undercarriage parts... you can still have them if you want them. Great to see a BUFF - you can't have too many of these beautiful aircrafts :twisted:

    You did a great job on this B-52. I am also building this B-52, all I have left is the engines.

    It is impressive to see a model of this size.
    First time I've seen such a large model hanging in place.
    Very nicely done, congratulations on a fine build.

    Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

    No problem! thanks for the reply and I am sure there might be a way for someone to make a grey version with just a few moments of work. :thumb:

    I am currently building this model - i don't know if they have improved it, the kit has serious fit issues. I am re-designing my parts as i go along - some of the up-grades i have made are available here in the downloads section. To re-paint this model would be a fairly straight forward piece of work to undertake {if you have the time} i just do this as i progress. I can't up-load any of my build here at the moment because i am not on my own systems. You can view this at www.papermodelers.com - you will have to be a member to view the images. Hope you get one sorted out. Kind Regards. Pete.

    Hey Pete! :) I wish you would post a pic of that beauty in this thread, I think Underwood would be in awe, as the rest of us are! :)
