CD72077 - 1/72 SAC B-52G/H

Recommended Posts

CD72077 will be the SAC-era B_52G/H sheet that I had been talking about for a while. I have finally made enough progress to commit to an approximate release date in the January-February timeframe. 

 

The late/current B-52H sheet (CD72058) had been selling very well; and might sell out by the time the Modelcollect kit is actually here.

 

Too early for any profiles - I hope to start posting them sometime in November. There will be a good selection of airframes from different units and bases, covering 1970s to early 1990s.

Please consider issuing these decals in 1/144.  Thanks.

Fourth for 1/144.  With the Revell and Minicraft kits, options are pretty slim for these kits in regards to decal options.

I will do this in 1/144 - just give me some time to deliver the B-52H and B-1B sheets in this scale first; both in the next couple of months.

Sounds great!

B-52G 58-0178 "Old Soldier" is one of the options I am working on for the new B-52 sheet. I can not quite tell which camouflage scheme this is, though. Was this a short-lived scheme or a modification of one of the other schemes? Any comments would be appreciated.

That is the "strategic" scheme applied during the 80s; it followed the "SIOP" scheme (tan/green over white) and preceded the overall FS 36081.

 

It's 36081 with 34086 splotches on the top & sides and 36118 splotches on the bottom.  The 34086 tended to fade towards brown.

 

Many of the Desert Storm jets wore this scheme.

 

Great choice for the sheet!

Thanks, Jonah! I figured it might be the strategic scheme, but the weird brown color in the photos threw me off track.

Hi Kursad,

 

Hope it's not too late to request a scheme for this sheet.  I'd really love to see B-52G 58-0185 El Lobo II that took part in the Secret Squirrel mission.  I have some photos of her I took from the USAF Armament Museum where she currently resides...

Yes, I plan to include markings for at least one or two Fairchild-based aircraft.

I was thinking of buying the Italeri/AMT kit for the Griffiss AFB markings with Lady Liberty on the tail. Would you happen to be including that on your sheet? If so, i think I'll wait and buy the new B-52 instead of the AMT offering.

The sheet will include almost all unique tail markings seen on B-52s in the 1980/1990's, and Lady Liberty is definitely on the sheet.

Awesome! I'll hold off on the AMT kit and support you. One more small favor to ask. I'd like to do a Griffiss KC-135 refueling said B-52. They had the exact same artwork on the fin flash, but only smaller. Any chance of sticking that in the corner of the sheet, or maybe even doing another KC-135 sheet? :whistle:

Sorry, I don't think I can spare any space on the B-52 sheet for the KC-135 markings, but I will try and include them on the upcoming KC-135A/E sheet if possible.

Thanks for the consideration. I hesitated to ask because I know what it's like to get "requests" for things. I found out they flew KC-135R's as well if you ever do another R sheet. Niagara Falls would be a cool one as well. See, there I go again! :rolleyes:
