Ray Seppala Wow Dutch, so you do build stuff! :) Seeing your build gives me the urge to find one of my 1/72 B-52s and have a go at it! (not that I need any more on the bench at the moment) I am enjoying the mods you are making. Gunna be a fine model when finished.
05. September at 05:42:29
Dutch Thanks, Brother Ray! Yes, I haven't stopped buying, but I have slowed down a bit. My close friend's retirement (former B-52G pilot) prompted me to start cracking on this one. I finished (except for decals) a ARII Ye-152 Flipper, and have another B-52H on the line, partially glued up. A mentor once told me, "To build a great kit, you have to start with a great kit." I have been trying to follow that advice for years now. So I am trying to thin the stash and focus on the best kits for my limited time. Thanks for tuning in. R/ Dutch

Dennis Dilmore I have one of these still in the box and another i bought from a goodwill on line auction. The goodwill one was built, but poorly. Only thing i'm missing are the outrigger wheels, struts and doors.
12. September at 02:32:10
Dutch Dennis, show us some pics. I have the u/c outriggers from my Revell (ex-Crown) B-52H kit i will send you. You will have to make your own doors from plastic sheet. R/ Dutch
12. September at 02:37:28
Dennis Dilmore Um, how do i add pics?
12. September at 17:56:34
Dutch Dennis, when you login to SCM, you will see a series of tabs below your prfile photo/name: Collections, Projects, Albums, etc... Click on the Album tab, and three more green tabs appear. Click Add an Album. You can also create a Project, then scroll down to see where you can add an album to that project. This is my preferred method. HTH. R/ Dutch

Dennis Dilmore Ok, uploaded pics to an album.

Julian Herrero aka Yuri Like it. Cogratulations . I still have some old books referring to this Mig Ye-152 as a Mig-23. Those were "dark ages" for soviet planes lovers
23. September at 07:53:58
Dutch Julian. Yes indeed. Apparently, Bill Gunston was not the be-all, end-all of Soviet aviation.

Donald Dickson II Very nice! What paint are you using?
13. September at 03:52:59
Greg Baker TWO B-52s?! I was thinking... didn't I just see a B-52 build from Dutch? But it looked different...
13. September at 05:01:56
Dutch Yes, two distinct B-52 builds; one early & one late. I am using the Krylon Premium Metallic Chrome spray can (same as used on my son's Monogram B-17G) and Krylon satin white spray can (what I had kicking around the garage.) I will be doing the engines when I get back from short weekend trip; which will allow the Chrome to cure and harden up. I noticed that it tends to be soft and will adhere to your fingers if you handle the sprayed areas before completely dry & cured, hence the masking tape holding it to the box lid in Photo #4. BTW, I have one more 1/144 B-52G to go with possibly another B-52H. I haven't decided whether to do a Vietnam B-52D/F from Minicraft yet. I think they used the same wings as the ex-Crown H and just changed the fuselage/tail and engines/tanks. They may have added dumb bombs too!
13. September at 15:08:15
Greg Baker Wow. I've got plans to build a 1/144 B-52 as well, so I'll be watching closely. Any recommendations on a particular kit? I'm not picky about which letter comes after 52. ;)
13. September at 17:17:14
Dutch Greg, get the cheapest one you can find. They are all good. Crown B-52H TF-33s are nothing to write home about, but after market replacements are available. However, you do get a wide variety of nuclear stores (AGM-28 Hound Dog, AGM-69 SRAM, GAM-87 Skybolts, ADM-20 Quail decoy). Revell & Minicraft both re-released this kit as an early B-52H, just changing the box and decals. Minicraft then re-popped it with late B-52H mods, but the engines & tanks require much work. The new Minicraft B-52D uses the wings of the H, but adds new fuselage/tail/turret, engines, tanks and bombs. The Revell G & H (#4583/84 and later) are good for late models, but windscreen suffers from a wrong outline. None of the kits have accurate spoliers or panel lines, but the later Revell kit come closest.

JOHN THOMAS Cool idea, I love that movie.
19. September at 02:35:44
Dutch Thanks John. I just received the Golden Dragon B-52H correction set for this kit and it is nicely done. I will only be using the engines and tanks though. It was a small gamble, but the payoff will be worth it.
19. September at 12:22:59
Glenn . Looking good Dutch! Boy it's such a pain that no B-52 in either 144 or 72 scale is good outta the box! So many changes eg. engines, wing tanks, blisters, bumps nose and tail! all need work or changing! NOT GOOD ENOUGH! I wish they would just get it right! at least some of the time! :o
19. September at 14:29:34
Dutch More work tonight. Finished the engines and mated to pylons. Will paint over the weekend and attach to wings later next week. Have to work on the AGM-28 Hound Dogs, next.
