A much-awaited release from Cutting Edge, this covers 4 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:-

  • B-52D-35-BW 56-0672 "Night Missions Blogh!!" from the 99th BMW, in the standard Vietnam SEA/black scheme;
  • B-52D-35-BW 56-0677 with shark mouth from the 43rd SW, in the standard Vietnam SEA/black scheme;
  • B-52D-60-BW 55-0103 "Happiness Is Home" from the 99th BMW, again in the standard SEA/black scheme;
  • B-52G-95-BW 58-0183 "Valkyrie" from the 93rd BW in the revised FS36118/34086/36081 scheme;
  • B-52H-160-BW 60-0054 "Mud BUFF" from the 2nd BW, in the final FS38118 scheme

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.

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!
