Decal Sheet Title  B-52's #5
Types Featured  B-52G, B-52H

Fifth in the line of much-awaited decals from Cutting Edge, this one covers 5 different B-52G/H airframes.

The decals are very thin with minimal carrier film and the registration seems to be spot on. The airframes covered are:-

For each airframe, Cutting Edge include a side view with details of where individual markings are placed and a top view to show where walkways etc are located. All drawings are in full color. The sheet also includes a vinyl mask for the "Conceived For Liberty" marking on the starboard fuselage of B-52G 58-0210.

One thing I did notice is that color references are provided for the SIOP and gunship grey schemes but NOT for the two tone grey / green scheme - these would be FS36118/34086/36081.

They also make reference to the specific fit out of each airframe, and this would come in handy if using either the DB or Cutting Edge resin conversion sets.

Another very nice sheet!
