How about pinging the owners with some of your suggestions and ask them to post a buyer's survey?

Looks like they are going for a B-52H; appropriate since that's the only version still operational.  I wonder how long it will be after release before someone makes conversion kits for earlier model B-52s?

Until you see it officially announced and better yet in actual kit form it is all 'supposed'.  This could go no further than a one off master...

I predict this one will be very popular in the 1/32 crowd.

No surprise on the price, expensive mastering, expensive hand-laid GRP main components,
everything else is resin, again $$.

No, I did actually see an ad with a price of around $2700 US. Seemed steep even for such a huge hunk of resin.

If that's the level of detail OoB (& you're really into B-52s) that's not an unreasonable price for what must be, in marketing terms, a very short-run kit. 8)
