    Hi guys. Here's my build of the FG model Boeing B-52 Stratofortress. I downscaled her some what as you can see - she is my all time favourite Aircraft. Hope you like the model.

    Great looking build Peter! Love the camouflage scheme. By how much did you reduce the print?

    Nice build! I built the NASA version of the FG BUFF a couple of years ago, and it doesn't look anything like as neat as yours. Great job mate!

    Nicely done! You just take the wonders of re-scaling these models as needed for granted after a while. The magic of computer graphics and the skill of the builder - again, well done!

    Thank you, glad you like her :mrgreen: Can't remember exactly the reduction ratio, but the output was 40% of the original if that helps.

    I love the version you mention :thumb: Glad that you like the results of mine - but at a guess, yours probably was good too ! we never really think of our own builds as great builds. I see where you are from, and may i say this to you... Thank God for YORKSHIRE TEA :thumb:

    Many many thanks Yogi - You are a consummate performer in all your fields, and your words mean a great deal to me as a friend and a fellow modeller, thank you sir :mrgreen:

    Thank you, that means a lot. She is a BEAUTIFUL aircraft and no way UGLY as her term of endearment implies - a truly GORGEOUS plane :thumb:

    Hi. They were a tad fiddly at the reduced scale, but i am about to GO LARGE on this beautiful aircraft.. but she will have a full set of formers i am designing, so if that all works out i will up-load them for anyone who wants to build her big scale. Thanks for your interest friend :thumb:

    Hi Peter
    This looks good , I worked on these beasts when I was on the flightline. They are big.
    I have this model and have refrained from building her because of the size, and as you know I am not afraid of big models.
    Again good job.
