Well, . . . . one maybe, . . . I'll have to ask the WIFEU :roll: :roll:

Graham I've a 7.5m x 5.2m detached garage, full at the moment but that can be . . . . remedied :wink: :wink:

It is super cool though, and the idea we could get A, B, C, D, E, F & G models as well as the NB, EB & RB versions as well :yahoo: :yahoo:

Hmm! I've got eight 1/72 B-52's with the same idea to make all the variants that look different. Got most of the conversions that are available and I've even got a B-52B with the X-15 too (going to display that one with quite a few of the other test aircraft it could carry).

I started to make the bomb clips which the B-52D had for the 'Big Belly' modification, but just recently Aircraft in Miniature has announced they will be producing the clips (there's two types) and the trailers for hauling them to the planes.

I have the Italeri/AMT B-52G & H so this won't appeal to me although I would still love the original AMT one with SkyHound missiles. If you have the space you can display larger models on the top of bookcases, you just have to be creative with their positions.

You mean the North American AGM-28 "Hound Dog" cruise missile, Saxon?
Carried by B-52E, F, G and H models.

I have the Revell B52 D to do. Here is a great thread on a B52 D Diorama with the big belly modification. Great info for the support vehicles too. 8-)

Looks good. I like the kit even though it is pretty old. The bomb plate for the bomb bay is genius in my opinion even though many would say it is cheating or lacks detail.
