1/72 Italeri B-52H engine nacelles

Recommended Posts

The kit items are shockingly under sized.







The dark grey engine is a resin replacement of the correct proportions. It still has the casting gate attached to the front of the engine. This is the rough textured portion, everything after is the engine.
Not only are the engines to short front to back they are to narrow side to side too making them just over all comical

If you want decent H engines there are 3 choices.

Buffmaster, Lonestar and Modelcollect.

The resin ones from Lonestar are pretty good but both require some accurate cutting and cleanup.

Buffmaster are similar but slightly rougher surface texture.

Modelcollect are same sized and look very decent.

I don't know about the size, but the Modelcollect nacelles need a lot of work to look "very decent."🤨

If you think Modelcollect need a “lot of work” its still going to be less work than the other two options...
