Peter Klin I did this kit many many years ago. Be aware: recently I read on several forums that this kit has a serious accuracy flaw: the Italeri "engineers" mismatched the full airplane length with the length without the nose antenna! As a result the shape of the kit is slightly mistaken and almost impossible to correct. However, if you don't mind on shape issues, the kit is good, with a vast choice of armament (H-bombs), and it is the only b-58 in the 1/72 so far...

komoras Thank you for the info Peter
I have a humble collection of cold war bombers at a time, but plan to grow it up al little bit in the future
Bill Gilman Very sleek aircraft indeed. A supersonic bomber seemed like a good idea at the time, until they realized that the "area rule" would result in a fuselage cross-section so small there was no room for a bomb bay! Hence the large centerline weapons pod. When the mission switched to low altitude due to the SAM threat, it was no longer supersonic. But a beautiful aircraft nonetheless.
Greg Solomon You will have fun with the gaps on the fuselage. Filling, sanding and re-scribing panel lines was tedious. Also leveling the canopy/pilot access hatches if you plan to display them closed... it took mesome effort to make them fit flush. Good luck!
