Three Guys Replicas TGR 72004 for B-52H

Units: 7 and 410 BW




Scott Van Aken

If you like your models big, then you are probably into bombers. One of the bigger kits ever done are the AMT series of B-52s. They do have a few problems that will have to be overcome (such as the fact that the wings are molded in flight and not as on the ground). However, I have seen them made into superb models.

The first aircraft is 'Land Scaper II' from the 7th BW at Carswell AFB in 1990, just prior to the deactivation of the wing. It is in the 'Strategic Camouflage' of FS 36118/34086/36081; what we usually call 'Lizard'.

Next is the first of two from the 410th BW. 61-0025, 'Shack Rabbit'  is in overall 36081 and like the previous aircraft, carries low viz insignia and markings. This aircraft was based at K.I. Sawyer in 1990. Since then, the 410th has been deactivated.

The final scheme is also a 410 BW plane, but this time, 'Someplace Special'  is in the SIOP scheme of FS 34079, 34201, 34159 with a gloss white underside. It carries special markings in the form of invasion stripes on the wings and lower fuselage. It also has the rudder stripes carried by its A-20s during WWII.

Also included on the sheet are a selection of serial numbers so that you can do other 7 and 410 BW aircraft.

If you have a hankering for the big 'uns, then this sheet is right up your alley.

Please note that the sheet may look a bit short as I'll often crop off common markings to save on server space.
