Hmmm...I may have to look again on EvilBay, I don't speak Brazillian, but the pictures show it to be an interesting, more accurate build than the earlier version.

I agree. The shots of the sprues look promising.

One advantage of this kit over the earlier Revell kit is the addition of paint masks for the windscreen and wheels. Hmmm.

I found the proper colours for my B-2 in the early camo scheme. Like Asdex7189 stated I will use FS36118 for the main surfaces. The leading edges will get a coat of H401. The cockpit gets XF19 (FS36622) with the dashboard also in H401.

2 B-2's being built simultaneously? Have to see that.
18. April 2018, 15:44
Sven Schönyan
Yes indeed, 2 B-2 WIP simultaneously! And the good thing is you will have some time to follow. I know stugiii´s and my slow tempo in modelbuilding due to many other projects on the bench and so on :)
18. April 2018, 16:06
Martin Oostrom
Fine by me. Otherwise I feel so slow ;)
18. April 2018, 16:46
Ingmar Stöhr
All that sanding required considerably reduced my motivation to carry on with my build. But Sven just startet a race here. Although it might be at a slow pace :)

I had a look on their website and there is a good deal going on for pre-orders... $50USD for the kit. then it goes up to $150USD..
I am not getting it cause I still have to make the Testors version I have from the 90s!
22. September 2016, 06:34
stalker911
For that money I can get testors kit and all the upgrades that are available for it.
29. September 2016, 05:54
Santosh G
You would be right seeing as the Testors one is over 25 years old

£88 here in the UK....too much for a model kit.

The Details on the Modelcollect version is great but still too much for me.. I am not an expert builder so will stick with my Testors B2

I received this model kit lately. The kit is much much better than Testors and more sturby and better plastic quality.
i was very impressed with the instruction manual that have inside, is very detailed, colorful and quite big.
the details of the panels are quite deep for the scale. it will fit at 1/48 and not for 1/72 scale.
That was the only disappointing thing.
i would suggest to purchase 2 resin sets for the cockpit and is will be nice from eduard kit to use the front landing gear detailed set to make it more realistic.
A dry fit with the main structure main fuselage and wings a small gap was between them. You can put a 0,03 plastic sheet before you glue and it will be perfect.
Modelcollect kit is quite better than testors but need attention to improve it yourself.
it depends who much details you would like to add at the model kit.

Bought an unopened new kit and it was missing the clear plastic piece and a landing gear was broken, two firsts in one kit.

I've got the same problem 3 times recently, with the transparent parts or the vinyl tracks. It is probably a consequence of speed of production. Revell has a very good after sales services. They sent me all the times the missing parts, with speed.

Not exactly a high-end kit. This will be a quick build, mainly as a toy for my son to play with. Wheel's up, and plenty of glue to keep the pieces from coming apart when it gets smashed into things

Do you like putty? And sanding? And large clamps? This is, of course, the Testors kit and it's, well, not the best. But it is the only 1:72 B-2 out there and I have seen it built up into some really incredible models. Look up the build by John Vojtech - unbelievable.
2. September 2014, 02:00
Glenn .
Yea a lotta work! Hope you have an angle grinder! After you putty the three top and bottom sections together and level out the join, It should look pretty good. built one many years ago in the grey and black scheme and have another one to do in the later all grey scheme one day...
2. September 2014, 14:52
Clifford Keesler
Hey Greco, I'll let this one pass as a big one.LOL. I built one when they first came out. Also did the Grey and black scheme. I did not know they were avaiabale again.
3. September 2014, 02:04
Dave Flitton
Don't take Vojtech's build as accurate though. Many details are for show (such as seeing the engine fans).
3. September 2014, 02:59
Greco Otero
I did know that is a nightmare of a kit, even though i got in love with the plane since Its unveiling its like this should belong to Batman or the X-Men I seen John Vojteh,a great build! I have come across one of this kits in my LHS but while I was thinking about it the store Closed for business or relocated

This is the old Testors kit. It's pretty rough, but I have seen some amazing results from modellers who don't mind scratch-building all the details and spending about a decade building it! It's the only game in town for a 1:72 kit.
