One that I didn't do was the B-52 Reno Racer...I don't remember who did it, or what scale, or what kit is was... :(


(but it does looklike one of the 1:200 scale Dragon ones...)

Another one I didn't do was this beautifully executed 1:100 Tamiya D BUFF, in Israeli Defence Force markings...

And finally, the shamefully badly done, and quickly destroyed, USN Long Range DSRV Dropship....to think a beautiful 1:144 Monogram/Revell B-52H died to make this...monstrosity. Even I go too far sometimes... :(

Cool !

I really like the Isreali BUFF, as in, like to see a Palestinian rocket knock into a billion pieces !

Take that ! and That ! Ha !

And your Navy BUFF looks good...........you know what Dave Spivey sez !

They have a bunch of them over in the Etats Unis, at Meijer for about 12 bucks....going over on Friday night  ( wifeys work party= hot drunk nurses ! ) and will slide by and pick up some goodies ( hangover permitting ) before coming home on Saturday !

Cheers !
