Cutting Edge 1/144 NB-52A Conversion






Minicraft 1/144 B-52H


Scott Van Aken

This particular conversion is for the Minicraft B-52H and makes the NASA NB-52A; NASA's first X-15 mothership. The parts in the kit are identical to that provided for the NB-52B so you can see those by visiting that preview. The only difference is the tail cone, which is shown here. The set includes the new flap, new forward nose, new fin, new engines and new 'canopy'. Like the previous set, no decals are provided, but those are available from Cutting Edge on sheet 44003.

Having built the NB-52B using the very similar conversion. I can tell you that it makes into a most interesting model when completed.
