Default Why no B-52's in 1:400 scale

Just wondering why hasn't there been any B 52's in the 400 scale yet??? It's interesting that Gemini, Herpa or Dragon haven't come out with their own version of this classic model yet. I would think that there's enough interest in the 400 scale for them to manufacture this USAF icon, but to no avail whatsoever.

Hmmm??? Just wondering!!!

Corgi made a B-52 that was a 'fit-in-the-box' B-52 that was close to 1/400, but with a stand and no undercarriage.

Beats me, it's got ideal proportions for 1:400 production, plenty of colour schemes and options too. Certainly a better banker than the C-17 you'd have thought ? Would also be great to see the Starlifter and the British V bombers, not least the Vulcan.

The Starlifter would definitely another model I would to have in my 1/400 scale collection as well The B-52 I would like to see Gemini, Herpa or Dragon come out with a release since they've all come out with C-5's, C-117's and the B-2's!!!

I have one in the gray and it is a very nice model.

Yes I've been banging on about a Buff being made too for ages!! It would be an awesome model. I'd like to also see a Starlifter as Danny mentioned,plus A400M, KC-46, and MRTT's. Let's get a military 'want campaign' going!!! Maybe someone will listen to us then!
