Produced by the American company Boeing since 1955 it has been, for a long time, a symbol of the Cold War. It has been, for several years, the backbone of the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command. The B-52 has been produced in a significant number of versions that has gradually evolved the successful project to better answer to the changing in operational needs. The “G” version is the most produced B-52 variant and it has been delivered to the S.A.C. wings from the early 60s. It has been characterized by a large number of changes implemented as a more strong structure, the adoption of new avionics systems and, important issue for a strategic bomber, the longer operational range thanks to the increased fuel capacity and the possibility to adopt external fuel tanks. The B-52G took also part in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. This kit includes parts for the assembly of one model. The set requires both glue and paint in order to be completed.
