Great request Mick. I will do them for the next skin-pack.

Since we do not have the G-type, I will use the H-early and the H-Late versions for the Middle East war campaigns.
They were painted with a special camo-scheme for those bombing missions.

The noticeable diference between the G and H-early types was the rear machine-gun area. The H-early type had a vulcan gun
and not one as seen on the F-type with the rear-gunner visible.

Any chance at a Fairchild AFB-based 92nd Bomb Wing B-52H?

I'd ask specifically for 'Czar 52' - but I'm not finding good palettes of the actual aircraft. This is the best I can find at the moment.

Also GJ with the skins; been waiting since the plane was released :)

I am able to paint the B-52 in the same style as you posted, with the eagle in the tail, but I am not so sure that
the lettering "===FAIRCHILD===" will come out good on the fuel pods on the wings. I will try my best to see if this
is possible  ;)

I will search for the "Czar 52". I never seen that version. Have you found anything about it?

-------------------------------------//---------------------------------

OK I am back, I just did a 10 minute search on this "Czar 52"  B-52-H.
Oh my God   o_O  What a terrible crash..... Rest in Peace to the crew.

There were many  crashes involving B-52 over the years it has been in service.
Another famous crash involved a B-52-D named "Tommy´s Tigator". A skin of it is included in this skin-pack.

I am able to create a skin of this "Czar 52 " aircraft.
I have a good picture of it now. Here are some of my finds....

Boeing B-52H-170-BW Stratofortress
serial number 61-0026
call sign = Czar Five Two
Assigned to the 325th Bomb Squadron, 92d. Bomb Wing

Shit sorry Max; I figured everyone knew about it. Otherwise I'd have given you the info on the thing.

Since WA's my native state, it's well-remembered here.

As for the tail; I'm fine have the tail be accurate and the fuelpods screwed up.

Thank you everyone.

MM you can create many many more skins for the B-52. There are still many color versions to paint and create new skins.
You can also change the skin colors for another color tone and make them dirtier, anything is possible to create using a skin-template.

In this website - https://www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/b-52/b-52_all.shtml
There are many color charts for the B-52 in the section "Colors & Markings" and you can change the colors which you see
in the skin-template  ;)
