    Apparently HPH in the Česká republika is doing a B52 in addition to the B36 they came out with about a year ago.   Limited to 100 units.   Be still my heart.

I remember a Monogram B-52 model hanging from the ceiling of a hobby shop--plastic overcast! :D

A 1/48 B-36??? Whoa... :o :wub:

No thanks. I built a 1-72 scale B52G and that was plenty big enough. :D

 

I built the Monogram 1/48 scale B29 one time. There comes a stage when models are so big, they star to be impractical.

 

 

There is a 1-48 scale Vulcan and a 1-24 scale Lancaster IIRC, though I dont know who makes them.

1/48 was the American scale, because the houses were bigger.  1/72 was the British scale

Yeah, 1-72 is roughly equivalent of Hornby OO gauge IIRC.

That was 1/76, and so Airfix military vehicle kits, and plastic soldiers, were released in the same scale as Airfix train kits and accessories.  Those sort of little differences persist: 1/32 v 1/35 for military kits, 1/720 (ie Italeri) v 1/700 (Japanese) for ships.
