B-52? Stratofortress Build

With the Skyraider finished and posted. I decided to start up a b-52 build thread because the one we have is meh with pizza cutter tires, a lack luster wing, and no droppable items or at least eye candy.

I am thinking of doing something like the skyraider with its armament. the only things I have committed to in my head are 108x Mk-82 bombs, sky bolt ballistic missiles, 2x Mk-39 nuclear bombs and maybe more. Maybe even multiple variants

Wow I feel Like this build is going over horribly. So should I do something else off this list or perhaps a different bomber that has not been done yet?

thanks for starting on this one
I have the current version that's on the swaps and I have no editing skills whatsoever so I was really disappointed with it, so really excited for this one.

cant wait

Three clips of 25 bombs, WOW, are you going to drop them in one big cluster or do a sequential 75 bomb release. This is going to be a great model.

three racks of 28 not 25 and two sets of 12 on the wing racks for sequential 108. I know I will have to reduce the aerodynamic load to about 20% (estimate) on the sim on the bombs in the bombbay to keep rf from "chugging" at a low fps from physics calculations.

Very impressive Legoman, Reminds me of watching bomb droppings on TV in Nam from B-52`s. They just never seemed to stop coming from the plane.
