B-2 Spirit
Posted by lpolpo22 on Saturday, June 14, 2003 7:23 AM
Years ago I attempted to build a 1/72 model of a B-2 Spirit and gave up due to the God-awful fit. But I think I have gained a little more experience since then and would like to give it another try. The problem is I don't remember the kit maker and can not find any reference on the web. Has anyone had experience with this model and is it avalible or has it been withdrawn?

Thanks for your reply, working with the knowledge that it was a Testors kit I waas able to find a couple of reviews, which have not been too flattering, but I think with a lot of tweaking I can make it work. Now all I need is a kit, my search so far has not been successful and I appreciate the help.

Ok - thanks a lot guys, I'm starting to rethink this whole Testors/Italeri thing and the B-2 unless some other manufacturer makes one in 1/72nd scale. Given enough time common sense will pervail.

lpolpo,

The Testors/Italeri (same kit) 72nd B-2 is the only injection molded kit of the Spirit. If you're still interested, I can look and see if I still have one of these.

Thanks a lot Blackwolfscd but I'm afraid that if I attempted one it would wind up in more peaces than when I started but I do thank all who respondedto my inquiry.

Hey All,
The Testors kit isn't that bad. Dragon (?) had the first B-2 kit
but was in 1/200 or 1/144th. came with an F-117 that was based
on an artist conception pic and was way off. The B-2 was pretty
good though.
Good Hunting,

No prob lpolpo!

The DML/Dragon kit was Super Tiny Scale (200th) and the first release had that funkified F-117. They did release the same kit with a newly-tooled 117 which, although not spot on, was a helluvalot better then the original. Because of this, the initial release is something of a collector's item to the serious collectors out there. Now if I could only find some serious collectors... Tongue [:P]
