    Hi guys. Here's my build of the FG model Boeing B-52 Stratofortress. I downscaled her some what as you can see - she is my all time favourite Aircraft. Hope you like the model.

    Great looking build Peter! Love the camouflage scheme. By how much did you reduce the print?

    Nicely done! You just take the wonders of re-scaling these models as needed for granted after a while. The magic of computer graphics and the skill of the builder - again, well done!

    Thank you, that means a lot. She is a BEAUTIFUL aircraft and no way UGLY as her term of endearment implies - a truly GORGEOUS plane :thumb:

    Hi. They were a tad fiddly at the reduced scale, but i am about to GO LARGE on this beautiful aircraft.. but she will have a full set of formers i am designing, so if that all works out i will up-load them for anyone who wants to build her big scale. Thanks for your interest friend :thumb:

    Hi Peter
    This looks good , I worked on these beasts when I was on the flightline. They are big.
    I have this model and have refrained from building her because of the size, and as you know I am not afraid of big models.
    Again good job.

    Oh that's right... make me all JEALOUS :mrgreen: Pleased that you like her :thumb:

    My dear Grand dad Boats. Many thanks for the nice comments, means a lot to me. The version you refer to is one of my favourites too. The NB-52A {20003} with the X-15. I love this colour scheme, very bright and vibrant :thumb: I was going to be building this version - but that isn't going to happen, you will see why when i start work on the next project - This will be a big surprise for you and some of the other guys too. No clues, so just be patient, and all will be revealed soon :twisted:
