Caracal Models CD144027 - B-52 "Tall Tail Stratofortresses"

Step back into the annals of aviation history with Caracal's latest 1/144 scale decal sheet for the iconic B-52A/F "Tall Tail" Stratofortresses. This meticulously researched set celebrates some of the most significant and storied aircraft from the fleet, including the NB-52E CCV, renowned Vietnam War bombers like "Diamond Lil," and even the B-52F piloted by Hollywood legend (and USAF Brigadier General) Jimmy Stewart during his famous mission over Vietnam.

This decal set features markings for the earlier "tall tail" variants of the Stratofortress; and the diversity and details of the markings reflect the hard research work for older, classic USAF subjects that you expect from Caracal Models.

Featuring eighteen (18) historically accurate marking options, this 1/144 scale set highlights the B-52's varied and significant service history. From the high-stakes experimental flights of the NB-52E CCV to the harrowing bombing runs of the Vietnam War, each option reflects a unique chapter in the Stratofortress's storied career.

Accurate stencilling and some structural details to spruce up the kit are included. The recommended base kit is the Minicraft or Revell 1/144 scale B-52D, and the recent Academy re-box of the Minicraft molds.
