  1. Simply Fantastic! Great model!!!! Great result, highly inspirational!!! Thank you for sharing!!
  2. Thank you very much for the reply! Yes, the job seems perfect! A success! Giovanni
  3. Well, it looks very realistic to me, with a very nice, polished paint job! If I can ask, how did you manage to make such perfectly straight wings and fuselage on that ERTL model? Did you polish the paint at the end?
  4. Yankymodeler: SIMPLY FANTASTIC, OUTSTANDING, IMPRESSIVE RESULT!!!!!!! You have great modelling skills!!!
  5. Yes, over all, I think, I would be fine with the kit detail...I am a bit lucky on that since I am more interested in early 50s - 60s B-52 versions, so with less stuff on it, you know...chrome dome stuff etc... Anyway you are doing a superb job with details, wiring, skin shrinking etc... it looks in 1/48 scale!! You have professional skills! I'm really looking forward for progress!
  6. You are doing a superb job! I like your fine detailing and painting. I am following with a lot of interest, I've done an early SAC D (monogram) and I'd love to do an early G or H. Modelcollect seems, to me, the best option. I think the overall shape it's much more correct than the AMT-Italeri. Thank you for sharing your nice work!!
  7. Great job sir!!! I remember very well the Air Malta 720Bs in the 80s, roaring day and night. They didn't have APU so every time they needed the external starter unit, even noisier! Those were times! I still feel the strong smell of kerosene, dense smoke, noise, shiny heavy metal wings and jets and the heat released by those engines once the aircraft turns out of stand! Todays liners, in contrast, appear made of plastic and candies! I like a lot your metal job, looking forward for new updates! I also have the Roden kit, so, I learn from you!
  8. I'm glad you have good memories! I also remember lots of Boeing 707s and especially 720s, just as a very young child back in the 80s. They were huge to me, shiny, noisy, smoky, smelly of jet fuel. That's I think why I like so much B-52s, they are a kind of 707x2! Very interesting what you are saying on the electrical controls used instead of hydraulics to save weight. Very clever, I never new that!
  9. Thank you so much Orion! You are too kind. I was even lucky, almost everything worked more or less the way I was expecting. Since when I was very young I was almost "obsessed" with "silver" B-52s so I've been observing a lot of photos, material etc... I've been also observing many great modellers, here and in general online so I created my own ideas. The cover, for me, it's a must! Dust, cats, children around, are worse then Soviet ICBMs! A big thank you for your interest, I exchange the deep bow to you Orion! Stay safe!
  10. I really love your collection! Especially, the way you manage to display all those monsters is simply brilliant! Your Modelcollect B-52H is really lovely, I hope to make an "early one" one day...well, I hope to have a similar collection one day, probably more focused on the 50s and 60s! You can be really proud Sir!
  11. Thank you so much for your interest!! For long I also thought I didn't have the space , till I realized I only need a corner of approx. 80cm by 80cm. Check also the solution of "hsr", a senior member, I think it's very interesting:
  12. Very interesting! I'm happy for the career of your father, it sounds quite a lot!! I hope you have many memories from that time! Yes, I heard of the monstrous complexity especially of the first B-52s. In the movie "Bombers B-52" it looks just like a jewel of technical advancement but I have read in many places that it was very complicated. For me knowing the complexity of these giants, increases their charm even more. For an outside observer, they were kept flying continuously just like small Pipers!!
  13. Thank you Sir! I really appreciate your comment. So, your father was a crew on these beautiful monsters?
  14. I know! I hope the perspex will save the model from my little godzilla! I still remember the frustration when I was a kid and clumsy friends etc...wanted to touch my models!! I hope pespex is enough, at least at the moment!
  15. Thank you very much!! Don't forget that the model appearing in Dr Strangelove was a beautiful B-52 G/H Yes, with the "perspex box" solution I hope I will be able to pile up, one on each other, some large models, occupying only the space of a corner in a room. Thank you for your comment Bangseat, I appreciate!
