Interesting. I like how smaller models don't take up too much space, so no 1:48 B-52 for me. But.. how accurate is it?
10. January, 09:55
Markus Antonius
1/144 scale large Aircraft still need plenty of space. Time will tell how accurate this mold will be.
10. January, 11:42

Judging from their recent B-1B release, I hope accurate and extremely precise in molding and assembly. I am really looking forward to this kit. R/ Dutch

About the Early B-52G. The boxing comes with proper flaps with tracks and the START l
“strakelets” as well as the early G-style nose without EVS and ECM blisters. It has both early and new tails. I ordered the new nose correction as I want to model a later 52G with nukes and ALCM so this kit will allow that. It includes 8 B28FI nukes and the nose correction kit should get me launch pylon and ALCMs.

Just wanted to say, they are improving the kits. For postage you can get a new nose and flaps from model collect direct. Also gets you cruise missiles.

The 64 people that have this kit on their wishlist may want to read all of my comments below about this kit before you buy! I won't buy any other boxings of these future kits until i know if they have the correct configuration of the model in the box!
19. August 2018, 15:32
Glenn .
GUYS READ THE INFORMATION ATTACHED IF YOU INTEND BUYING THIS KIT!!!!! Considering how long this kit has been in getting here. You think it would be correct! Think again... :(
21. August 2018, 03:11
Calvin Gifford
Looks like I am going to wait until they (hopefully) revise the tooling!
10. December 2018, 07:17
Glenn .
Yes this is so annoying. Now they get the second release wrong also. With the late model B-52H still fitted with the Vulcan 20mm tail gun (No long tail ECM parts) and yet giving you only the AGM-129 cruise missiles! The tail code decals look way too big also. I don't believe them when they say they will make a fix to the incorrect parts and supply them free of charge? How are we suppose to get them?
That's why I'm telling everyone, Hopefully if people don't buy them then they will be forced to fix it in order to sell them. I thought by now they would have sorted out the mistake they made on the first release. BOYCOTT BUYING THE B-52's. Don't get me wrong i like the kit but i would like it a lot more if they got it 100% right. I shouldn't have to wait for a fix to build it nor should i have to buy a correction set from someone else. :(
11. December 2018, 00:50

Like many manufacturers, they are probably betting on the fact that many people either won't know the difference or won't care enough for them to actually fix the tooling.

I'm dropping these B-52's off my want list! They can't seem to get any version right. Just got the B-52H version and guess what more big mistakes just like the B-52G version they already released. STAY CLEAR OF THESE KITS! I'll post more about the B-52H version on that listing on here soon!

I hope these kits aren't a disappointment. I have one on the way from Hong Kong as i write this. The photos I've seen of the test shots look O.K. yea just O.K. nothing to get excited about though really, The detail looks a bit sparse. And no real improvement on the AMT now Italeri kits. And ONLY ONE CHOICE OF MARKINGS! really? Seems to me they are going to milk these kits as hard as they can by changing very little such as weapons and only one choice of markings in every boxing. The B-2 is good but the weapons look very average and only one choice of bombs that appear poorly detailed. They have a weapons set planned for release (more money!) really for kits like this there should be 3 or 4 decal options and GOOD WEAPONS included! The next boxing of the B-2 is listed on HobbyLink Japan (with a different bomb) for a pretty steep price! I'm loosing interest in these pretty quickly ):
4. August 2018, 03:14
Glenn .
The B-52G Just arrived to my work! I must say it looks pretty good. Nice crisp molding, Like the old AMT one but a bit sharper as far as detail goes. Good cockpit detail and the weapons bay is well detailed too with a rotary launcher for 8 missiles. They include 20 x AGM-86 and 9 x AGM-109 Tomahawk cruise missiles. A bit of a odd amount but you could put 8 AGM-109 on the rotary launcher and 12 x AGM-86 under the wing pylons i guess? The landing gear detail is nice too good wheels etc. But only one set of markings in a kit of this size is a bit disappointing, but there is quite a few aftermarket options around. The markings are for Old Crow Express 57-6492. I 'm not a fan of the way they did the cockpit windows though i would prefer a one piece flight deck with the windscreen but they made the tiny windows on top separate parts with a one piece U shape windscreen to slide into place (this makes it harder to hide glue on the small top windows!) But overall looks pretty good, There is some large ejector pin legs hanging off the rear side of the wing panels they will trim off without any problems. Overall pretty nice! If you don't have a AMT/Italeri release you might want one of these big BUFFs :)
13. August 2018, 06:55
Glenn .
Just looking at the profile of this kit and someone has added a comment that the decal option in this kit is incorrect for the parts included in the kit? Can you explain what is incorrect who ever wrote this? I think it must be something to do with the "tail gun section" maybe? or is it the fact it has AGM-86 cruise missiles and needs wing root extensions?
19. August 2018, 13:53
Glenn .
Here's the answer!
The kit has a couple of errors that need fixing to make the version on the decal sheet here's a link to a full list of the issues.

https://dstorm.eu/pages/build_instructions/b-52g_info_en.html

scroll down till you see the entry about the modelcollect kit!

here's what is says.

The kit is completely engraved. The parts are split nearly similar like in Italeri kits. The kit UA72202 has one big problems. The box art shows plane with "wing root extensions" and ALCM pylons for AGM-86C missiles, BUT the kit contains only the ALCM pylons and AGM-86 missiles, but the front fuselage parts are missing the "wing root extensions" !!! The decals in the kit are for 57-6492 "Old Crow Express", which you can not build from the kit as the real plane had "wing root extensions" and AGM-28 pylons (both missing from the kit)
The kit contains tail section from "D" version.
19. August 2018, 15:04
Glenn .
So once AGAIN a new kit with problems!!!! NOT GOOD ENOUGH and a bad mistake for a new company to make. But having said that it is still a better kit than the AMT / Italeri one in the sense of a full bomb bay (AMT kit is sealed up below with no detail) plus the flight deck is much better detail in this kit too. So we have to scratchbuild the wing root extensions and the 40 inch tailplug (That's in some AMT boxings) to get this looking right. Maybe someone will do a resin correction kit for it! How about it Barracuda!!!! you guys did a great job of the B-1B update kits for the Revell/Monogram kit.

Cool! Everybody wants what i want! After that they can follow up with a C-17 and maybe a new tool C-130 not to forget the C-130-30 as well. I hope they do well with this "new tool" ? B-52 Let's hope it not just a AMT/Italeri re-box???? :o
30. June 2016, 02:21

C130 Is looooong overdue. I had hoped Italeri (who seem to own the molds) or Revell would have done something similar to the Herc as to the C160 and the C27.
30. June 2016, 18:30
Glenn .
Thanks Guus. I've been hoping someone would do a new up to date C-130 for a long time. It seems Italeri can't be bothered as they keep re-releasing the old one with a few new bits, But still old engines and other outdated bits. Pity as their C-27 kit is real nice. COME ON GUYS! Hey Airfix, Revell, Trumpeter, or Modelcollect someone commit to a NEW TOOLING!!!!

Hope that is a joke, is the market really waiting for a 1/72 C-17 ? What about a decent new Fokker F-27 / Fokker 60, the CN-235 / 295, Dornier 228 / 328 , the Piaggio family, the smaller Antonovs, Hell ! Even an ATR or two (maybe even 1/48 but that might be slightly delusional). Sorry .... thanks for the heads-up but as it would be nice after all these years to get a half decent 1/144 DC10 or MD11 and I'm getting worked up at seeing all this plastic go to waste. Note to self, keep taking the tablets :)

Beautiful build! I'm not sure I could match it. Did you consider at all using different shades of aluminum to represent panels with more or less wear than others? I've seen it executed in rags and on webzines by modellers far superior to I but I like the effect. Still there's something to be said for a good clean build too! A+ work there!
20. May 2015, 14:38

Thanks for the comment.
I did some research about the NASA motherships and found out that from 1962 on, they were painted in a silver lacquer. No different schades for the panels (see book by Brian Lockett - painting guide for the Boeing Stratofortress motherships). I opted for a clean built as their flying time was very limited and the paint was still fresh in my opinion.

What a kit to get back into the hobby with ! I got suckered into picking this one as large kits have little number of parts and this one only has one external colour - easy to build and easy training with the airbrush again .
WRONG !
Fit is horrible, large parts warped, ...
So far it's already eaten three tubes of filler and a good bit of zap-a-gap .
I bought some resin for it, but I gave up, instead building this one OOB - apparently I needed the exercise !

There are several kits listed by Revell with this G-209 number as Full Kits. I suspect all are in error for the Bomber Command Set (model set) H-209. Maybe Revell at somepoint used G for gift but that is not what the 50s instruction sheets I have show.

After doing some research I have determined that the Revell 1/144 B-52G & B-52H are the best kits to start from for the scale, except for the windscreen. However, after further research into B-52 units and models flown with kit provided armaments, I determined that the weapons fit ought to be reversed in the kits. The Revell B-52G kit comes with Harpoons, but has the wing and tail mods necessary for a SALT II treaty ALCM carrying aircraft while the B-52H kit comes with ALCMs but would be better posed with Harpoons. Why Revell boxed the kits so, I don't know. As I intend to build my B-52H from the 42nd BW, Loring, ME with Harpoons, I'd like to ask any owner of a Revell 1/144 B-52G (Preferably kit #4583) to swap weapons fits, i.e. wing pylon and Harpoons and a photo copy of the particular instruction sheet pages for my Revell B-52H ALCMs with photocopied instruction sheet pages.

Belay my last! I just realized that I need a B-52G with Harpoons for the 42nd BW at Loring. So I'll keep the ALCMs on the B-52H and use different markings. R/ Dutch

A friend of mine has his large 1/72 airplanes (B-47, B-52, XB-70, Vulcan and friends) suspended vertically on the wall very much like framed pictures. All it takes is a hook picking up the kits e.g. by their nose landing gear wheel wells. Makes for a very nice size and shape comparison.

Beware, although there are not so many parts, it's a difficult kit to build due to its size. Even so, there are no bulkheads between the wheel wells and the bomb bay so it's a "look through" hull. I made some of plasticard an this gave a more realistic appearance. The biggest problem however is the painting of the beast as you require white undersides and 3 to 4 different shades of aluminium + a black nose. It takes time to let it dry overnight before applying the other shades. Even the retouching work takes a long time.
