This looks way closer to the real thing compared to the 1/32 kit. I am on board with this new kit, with other versions to come, according to the box. ????????

Treehugger Would be interesting to see a finished model with the announced gray camo scheme. :)
29. September at 06:57:53
Soeren . Here you can see both versions

One in aluminium and the other in the typical Green/Grey camo

NazgulIv Only nose is shrinked in volume. He has a fat belly, as if he had prepared a fat for the winter. Engine nacelles are not installed correctly. Also not fixed. The most noticeable corrected. Everything else was left unchanged.

NazgulIv the next one seems to be a modern and accurate model, and if you dig deeper, then the authors of the model are either fools or deceivers.

Jeff Dick Typical of early CAD drawings, there are anomaly's in the images, ie. modern antennas, the position of the crankcases etc. A few other things like the wing tip navigation lights are for a late B-17G, the tip vent style is factory, so you have to determine whether the one you model has no wingtip vent, or factory one vent ( kit ) or field modified, 2 vents further forward. The fuselage cross section should be constant from radio room aft bulkhead to the aft cockpit bulkhead, except for the turtle deck. The nose top is now the correct cross section being flatter, so the wind shield is now correct etc. The 1/32 kit is very inaccurate, however this new one is very promising, much cheaper and more people will get one because it is not so big and will be able to have space for it. Also a wise decision to do an early G first, because both Olive Drab/Neutral Grey and Aluminum can be used, most produced version. I am happy to make a few minor corrections for the asking price. The 1/32 kit is a disappointment for true B-17 expertens, however I am hopeful about the new 1/48 kit, because of completely new tooling and nice surface detail, it will be stunning in Bare Metal Foil. Also due to the simplicity of the kit, the cost is down and modellers who wish for extra details will no doubt be purchasing photo etch and resin detail sets, which may be expensive, so modellers who don't want extra detail don't have to pay for an expensive kit. Definitely HK was very strategic with this subject and have done some new research and changes to make things better for both the Modellers and HK. Bravo

NazgulIv why are you talking about CAD. Thre is posted photos of sprues. assembled model from the exhibition. the world is already filled with pot-bellied hellcats and avangers from the boss hobby and trumpeter in 1/48 and 1/32. We do not need such a continuation.
5. October at 06:27:39
Jeff Dick Do you have a link? Because the only images I can find of the new tool 1/48 B-17 are CAD. Lots of images of the 1/32 sprues and assembled B-17, which are not very accurate. New 1/48 B-17, completely different. I build mainly 1/72, because I like multi engine aircraft. I have a few favourites that I have more than one scale of ie. B-17, He-111, A6M. "We do not need a continuation". That is your opinion, you speak for all modellers by saying "we". Many armour modellers may feel no need for airplanes or ships, that is their choice. Many model companies are business minded and are based on supply and demand, quite simply that is why there are "pot-bellied" Hellcats and Avengers from Hobby Boss and Trumpeter in 1/48 and 1/32. Money talks, unfortunate for many, fortunate for a few.
Cheers ????

Soeren . On Facebook are a lot of photos of the sprues.
Sadly it has a LOT of ejector pins...

Here are a few of them - Uploaded on FB from James Hatch

Jeff Dick Thank you, I eventually found them on Facebook. Even better than I thought.
