HpH Models has shared a new series of detail images for their upcoming 1/48 B-52 Stratofortress model kit.
As previously reported, the kit is part of the company’s “extreme” line, which also includes a 1/48 B-36 Peacemaker. It will reportedly include fiberglass main assemblies, vacuum cast resin details and clear parts made of transparent resin. Also said to be included are photo-etched and metal parts, a wet transfer decal sheet and painting masks.
The kit (HPH 48052L) will contain a complete interior, undercarriage, open bomb bay and bomb racks with a basic armament fit. Extra accessories will also be released as separate sets that include a complete maximum payload of “steel bombs” (including their appropriate racks), ALCM cruise missiles (including the internal rotary launcher and external racks) and a huge landing flaps kit (it is necessary to order this kit simultaneously with the B-52 kit in order to prepare the basic wing parts for the flaps installation).
The latest update appears as a tease for the upcoming E-Day show this weekend, where the whole model will reportedly be on display.
