Italeri B52G and Guam Base Diorama Table was created by Flying_Kiwi
So hot on the heels of the tiny Tu95, i've cracked into another giant the Italeri B52G.

This is a group build between myself and Azza who has the same kit and got a jump on me so i worked through the night last night!.

We both had an idea a while ago to put this model into a coffee table, i have approached a joiner friend of mine to make the table(s) so now i just have to build the model and think about the setting

I'm going to build a B-52G Getting bombed up on the apron in Guam some time in the early 90's......

Something like this....



Anyway the model is pretty straight forward not the greatest fits but it works, added a beam to the wing box for extra strength as the wings seem a little weak, the engines went together well





And here is the size!!!!

Looks right in the call out...

It looks really effective. I often think freehand is far closer to the real deal. The nose will weather up nicely.
