Another B-52 is being resurrected from the boneyard.  Not many left at AMARC.  Boeing may end up having to put them back in production. 🙂

Looks like the B-1 will be phased out as the B-21 comes online.  Meanwhile the B-52 will continue to soldier on until 2040.

Modelcollect is releasing an update/correction for their B-52 nose on their B-52G kit.  Good for them.

Looks like the Modelcollect B-52H is getting close.  Also looks like they are going to correct some flaws from the B-52G.
