CD48092 - B1-B Lancer

Recommended Posts

Not for a few years, sorry. I will release an earlier (Euro 1) B-1B sheet after the current B-1B sheet (CD48144) sells out, and will consider reprinting it only after that one sells out.

Yes...I think some of the most interesting B-1s are those that were still wearing the Strategic scheme during the SAC to ACC transition. 
 

Similarly, I like the markings from the bases that no longer have B-1s, such as Grand Forks and Mountain Home.

There will definitely be a 1/72 version down the road.

I second this.  I went to flight school at The University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and flew by and over that base a few time.  Heard a story or two from my instructors about them flying low level maneuvers and them actually being well below the altitude their single engine prop planes were at.

Any plans to reissue CD48092 for the B1-B ?  Really, really hope so.

Is it listed as "in stock"? If it is listed as "available to order", I guarantee you that they will never, ever get any sheet (even those that are not sold out) from me - I don't know where else they would get it from.

“ Stock Status:(Available to Order) “

 

If you try to add it to your cart it says 

Quote
  • Sorry, the following item is currently out of stock: Caracal Models 1/48 Rockwell B-1B Lancer USAF - CAM48092

 

If you search their site for “Caracal” they show zero matches, I wouldn’t waste time waiting on them to fulfill your order.

Another B-1B I'd like to see is 86-0108 "Alien with an Attitude" of the 28th BS, 7th BW, Dyess AFB, TX, although in newer Gunship Gray colors. She is well represented in photos online. (Link 1) My B-1 pilot friend said that sometimes everything worked great on the jet and she was "tight!"  But, sometimes things were not so great, hence the "attitude."

I dunno Dutch, I would think that Warner Bros would rain down almighty legal hell on any decal maker that reproduced a registered trademark such as Marvin the Martian without it being licensed.   Even the artwork on the aircraft itself has they typical TM & copyright logos.  That's covering your fool.

This post also illustrates the passage of time.  Anyone remember how scarce and in-demand the Fox 1 and Cutting Edge B-1 sheets were?  That was 20 years ago.

 

Those 'Sunflake" markings were on Fox One 48-007:

I honestly thought that VANNA was already done on a sheet.

Kursad,

I was thumbing through my old WAPJs and came across this little chart for the B-1B force disposition in WAPJ Vol 40, Spring 2000, p.38.  It gives Units and serial numbers.  So much for OPSEC!

K/r,

Dutch

off topic, but I have all 43 issues of WAPJ.  I had renewed for 8 issues after #42 and they ceased publication, no refunds on pre-paid subscriptions.   grrr......

 

Then I subscribed to WAPJ successor International Air Power Review (IAPR). After #24 I re-upped for two years / 8 issues, and they ceased publication after #27.  Screwed again.

 

Both are still a great resource, but leave a bitter taste every time I open one.  :crying:

Similar story for me. I feel your pain. Water over the dam now. I  still read them, though without the bitterness. Hope you feel better.  For me, life is too short to get mad.

That's a gold mine alright! I  would buy one if he had that B-1 sheet in 1/72 for a reasonable price. Alas! No joy! Hence, waiting for Kursad.
