Jeff Dick A few faults, should be a pear shaped window on top of Cheyenne glazing. The heat exchanger grills were only present on the B6-G 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. Most of the 100 group Fortresses had the standard tail turret with different antennas like BU-E should have. The radome is too far forward, check photos, not drawings for correct position. Unfortunately the only accurate Fortress III from this kit is B6-G, a pity they didn’t include a standard tail turret and the older antenna so you could build the one with nose art accurately.
