Like Robert I too have the "Doggies" that come with the AMT B-52G.

The Quail is "begging" to upgraded with larger wings and other enhancements.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

New drones and related:







The Beechcraft AQM-37 Jayhawk in particular could make an interesting weapon.  The real thing had a top speed of around Mach 4 and a range of 180km (113 miles) and all this in the 1960s.  Maybe as an early ARM even?

The drone's fuselages and wings appear identical but the centreline one has a shorter/smaller radome on it's nose.  Any idea why?

Looking it up on designationsystems.net, I think the small radome is from early production and they switched to the larger one for the main production runs.

Too bad they didn't also include the fuselage mount for the Rascal.  That could make for a different-looking B-47 model, though I'd really rather model a Martin Bold Orion instead.
