First Look

Here is the latest decal set from Caracal providing eleven contemporary B-52H subjects for the AMT/ERTL and Italeri boxings of the 1/72 B-52H Stratofortress kit. The instructions show some of the modifications needed to bring the kit up to date though you'll have to go to the aftermarket for the tail fairing that replaced the tail gun.
