    Look, you’re definitely going to need your putty and spend quite a bit of time sanding. Is it a perfect kit? Nope. But if you put some work into it and take your time, it can come out as an awesome build. I have it flying out of my entertainment center and I love looking at it. Decals were pretty decent and any silvering I had I accredit to a rougher paint finish. Still working on that. I didn’t actually put any decals on the top because I was worried about them being too detracting, especially if they silvered (obviously I’m not going for total realism). I did buy some pilots to add to the kit because I wanted to build it in the flight position. Apparently it can be tricky getting the wing droop when you try to depict it on the ground. However, closing the wheel wells revealed some pretty big gaps that were hard to hide. I try not to look at the bottom haha. Panel lines are pretty big/deep, but hey, for the regular viewer, I think it really enhances the overall view (even though if it was blown up to scale you could probably step in those “crevices”). The engines were pretty rough to build and attach to the wings and probably took the most work and putty. I used silly putty to help with the camo and it turns out that’s a really effective method. I read a review somewhere that the tan and grey camoflauge is bogus, but after a decent internet search, I did find a few B-52’s with that camoflauge pattern. Definitely lacking some detail on the exterior, especially when it comes to antennaes and such, but there’s a chance to practice your scratch-building skills. Personally, I didn’t because there’s too many models to build and not enough time to build them with. At the end of the day, I highly recommend this kit – had a lot of fun. I’m still a newbie builder so if I can do it, then you can too (though I wouldn’t recommend it as your first or even fifth build, but maybe sometime after that). Good luck!

    Great time to kill time these days.

    Very nice model. Note: there is a lot of small decals which some might find a bit too much and there was quite a bit of overburden in the plastic, but overall very detailed and fun to work with.

    I have yet to build this monster but having opened the box it looks like this will build up well…. I’ve just got to work out where I’ll put it when finished…..

    I enjoyed building one of the models I loved to see when I was in USAF.

  7. Amazon Customer

    As advertised, not sure when I will assemble, so can’t say anything about part fit at this time. Fast shipping.

  8. Jose A. Maldonado

    Shipped fast. Old molds and extremely gappy, especially along fuselage. Get your putty ready. This is the cruise missile carrying version and not the Vietnam War carpet bombing version.

  9. The Bear

    Four piece fuselage, but no moving/ separate flying surfaces for added detail. It’s going together OK, but slow. My new HO train repair business is taking away most my model building time. But i hope to finish this baby soon if my doctor appointments lighten up.
