Great news. I hope it is a vast improvement over the Testors kit(what a dog)! Looking forward to it.

They are new to aircraft.  They have been around in small scale armor (lot of cold war USSR stuff) and have a pretty decent reputation for those kits.  They have ventured in to what seems like a trend of cold war strategic bombers and this will be their second kit.  They made a 1/72 B-52H that has just fairly recently actually hit the shelves.  The previews have looked good, but I haven't seen anything in the way of reviews of the actual plastic.

Really? I'm under the impression that the announcement of the B-52H was a bit premature and that the B-2 will make it out to distribution before the BUFF. So if you've seen the BUFF on "the shelves," please tell me where! I want one!

I could be wrong on this, as I haven't seen it on the shelf yet.  But my understanding was that it was out in eastern Europe and hadn't really hit the Western distributors yet.

1; The B-52 is not released yet.

2; The company isn't from Russia, it is Chinese.

3; There is a number of issues being worked on to be fixed in the B-2 CAD's.

Modelcollect's FB page says March release for the BUFF and April for the B-2.

Am i under the correct assumption that the main weapons for B-2A these days are JDAM equiped bombs, ie GBU-31 and GBU-38 and not their non-JDAM versions? (Mk-82/Mk-84) + AGM-158 as the main standoff weapon.

Pretty much the entire fleet's gone mad for JDAM, so it's a safe assumption.
