We are now firing commanders because their subordinates do “stick drawing” phallus as pranks on each other while deployed.

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

No, not the new Modelcollect kit.  The actual aircraft.  Story here.

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

Test build here.  I can live with that wing droop.

It appears that in addition to Modelcollect doing a B-52 G and H, now they have announced a D as well.

Is there anything the B-52 can’t do?  Glad to see the old girl soldiering on.

More on the Modelcollect B-52

Test build here.  I am a bit concerned with the wings.  They look like they have the same problem that the AMT kit does (i.e. the wings don’t droop and look more like they do when the 52 is in flight.) I am betting the outriggers don’t touch the ground.  That will mean some major work to get it to look right in the wheels down pose.
