Jeff Dick
A few faults, should be a pear shaped window on top of Cheyenne glazing. The heat exchanger grills were not present on either markings in the kit, the blank ones should be used and filled well flush. The inspection panel decals for the rudder, only the lower most one is on the right side, discard the others. Wingtips have a bit too sharp a radius at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock, a bit of careful sanding can tune this up. Better than Revell for sure.

Robert W Martel OOOOH!!!! I like the looks of this one !!
The reviews make it look good. I already have 2 Academy 72nd B-17's (D & F), but I couldn't resist this one. I was considering the new Revell also, but after comparing the reviews, I'm going for this one. The new tool Revell kit looks nice too and is cheaper but the bad looking glass made up my mind. Besides I had $14 worth of eBay Bucks, so that paid the shipping from Poland, the only one I've seen on ebay. So it cost me $38.
