    Yes, my favorite scheme too! Simple, elegant, with nothing hanging....no hound dogs etc... Just the pure machine!

    Thank you very much for the precise indication Rick, very useful! I'll search for it. Also, If anyone here would have any picture of the part it would be very welcome! Thank you again!

    Yes exactly, I've already bought, from that site, In the past, all I bought from there was very nice but as caudleryan is saying, almost everything is out of stock unfortunately. Then an other problem is that I can't find a lot of material on how was the bomb exactly connected into the bomb bay so It would be nice, at least for me, if Modelcollect, would straight put these options (Like Mark 39s, etc....) into the box. From what I'm seeing they are doing a nice job with the interiors. I really like their B-52G 1966 version with B 28 bombs... the "Chrome Dome" stuff. That's the initial purpose for the creation of the B-52.

    Yes exactly, with a correct dark blue "SAC milky way" and correct SAC badge on the left side: Monogram got it almost right and perhaps 2 Mark 39 bombs...

    Thank you, I know They are doing an early H version, in fact I was hoping for a more "standard all silver and white" decal option included in the box. Something like the picture I've attached, sorry for the very poor quality! Anyway for that I think there is around a decal sheet from Warbird. And thank you very much, I'm very pleased to know that all the releases will have the flaps extended option! That makes a big difference. I also hope they will do a correct early G-H cockpit. It's very easy to find early D's cockpit photos. I couldn't find anything about an early G-H, all analogue but probably it's just me.

    I heard around that they should release the early G at the beginning of 2019, now probably around February but I hope there will be no delay due to the reshaping of the nose etc... Anyway the pictures of the H model are very promising and they look very accurate, I like those flaps! (They should add them also to the G series). I have the temptation to buy one H now and do it in an early version. I'm seeing that they are planning very colorful D and H Early versions. To be honest, I was hoping that they also include decals for more standard versions (Just "Silver and White" with a correct SAC Badge) and for the D model I was hoping to see some early 50s nuclear monster weapon!! You know, some kind of stuff that has been even in the arsenal of the B-36 perhaps!

    Dear Modelcollect, I think you're doing a great job! Especially you're active listening to opinion and advises from modelers: which is great! I'm really looking forward for the EARLY D,G,H series to come out, I will buy a good number for sure! I think, as someone else is suggesting, the idea of also use an old Monogram kit as a guide it's very true. Monogram kit were extremely accurate in shape!! I wish I could give my small contribution with some pictures but the system only allows me a very limited space for a picture, probably because I'm a new member? I don't know. It's a bit frustrating but anyway. Perhaps You can find also some interesting material also on the official Boeing Site: http://www.boeing.com/bds/strategicairpower/?cm_re=March_2015-_-Roadblock-_-Strategic+Airpower#1955/b-52
