I think this laminate fibreglass version will win out over that vacuform offering in regards to accuracy. Would have liked to have seen a D tall tail version but this H is the modern take and given the DACO book I can see why they went with this one.   Would look good next to a Revell 1/48 B-1B, all you need is a B-2 in 1/48 for a complete Edwards AFB lineup.

Well
The B-52 is smaller than the B-36 (at least in wing span) so this would be easier to find room to display.

Story of my life... although to be fair the potential price of this release shouldn't affect Sanger's sales too much... plus building the Sanger kit will be much more fun! :D

I'm still curious as to why a 1/48 injection kit was never released…I mean they did a B-36 and B-1 in that scale :lol:

No one did a 1/48th injected B-36 before... a B-29 they have. :)

 

I'm wondering if we'll get any big Russian stuff in 1/48th from HpH and if we do I can see lots of kits going up for sale to purchase it/them!

Sorry, that's what I meant :lol:

 

I'd very much enjoy a range of injection 1/48 bombers, however doubt they'll arrive other than Vac or Resin/fibreglass! I plan to order a few 1/72 Modelcollect B-52s when they are released (then maybe a Trumpy Tu-160 and 95!)

:unsure: Ever since the AMK incident, even my ripped abs start to shake vehemently everytime I see the word PRE-ORDER on anything related to modelling.

Yeh, "they're" do.

Cheers,
