Paper modelling is no different to any other modelling media: you end up doing and sticking with whatever works for you. But I always keep an open mind on this because more often as not along the way someone will give you a technique that makes that next model better than the last.
Now with all that fatherly advice out of the way all newbies should remember the golden rule: START SMALL. It's becoming more and more apparent as this build progresses that Nobi has given us one hell of a well designed piece of work. But it is NOT a beginners model. Buy it by all means and buy it now- designers need our support- but if you're a relatively newcomer buy it, admire it, dream about it but put it away till you've got a bunch of smaller models under your belt.


VERY WELL SAID, Grasshopper.

If ever there was an aircraft that has truly achieved 'legend' status it has to be the B-52. Such a large airframe to be still going strong and STILL IN SERVICE is nothing short of incredible.

Uh. I am also "a large airframe that is still going strong".... (not so sure about the Still in Service" part.)

Engines on at last! Apologies for long time between posts- having never built a monster like this before I totally underestimated the time input required. Each engine pod was a stand alone model in itself but as I've pointed out before it's purely the size and not any design quality issues.
Some pics attached re the landing gear: they pretty much speak for themselves and just planning a practical approach and taking your time will see success. I thought it may be wise to reinforce the outrigger wheels with some wire and I'm glad I did.
Next post will be the completed article.

Finally done!

Well, here she is. Extremely happy with the end result with this in both the repaint and the build. Nobi truly is a genius designer. He's really captured the shapes, feel and 'sit' of the B-52. A big job for sure; but stick with it and the builder is truly rewarded. Only problem is I have no idea where I'm going to put it.....
As I was finishing this one I had a little visitor (last pic) to my downstairs modelling den. I think maybe this Leaf Tail Gecko was less interested in the model than it was in the little bugs flying around.

Magnificent plane and your work Garry.
Wow... It's a real pleasure to examine all those final pics.
Well done!

PS
I think that Gecko is a sign. Your next model should be a J1N Gekko.
