Calvin Gifford I am glad I did not run out and grab one when they first came out. Disappointing. I very much hope HK Models listens and corrects any subsequent release - I would very much love to see an ACCURATE new-tool D/E Flying Fortress. My Dad flew in them as a belly gunner in the SWP and got shot down in one, right before they swapped out their B-17's for B-24's - then eventually got shot down in one of them as well!
Mark Prystauk I'll take the HK kit over the Monogram one, as I hate dealing with raised panel lines (I had built it when I was a teenager). It looks like a B-17 and will look good on my shelf...and none of my friends or family will notice it not matching Boeing's drawings. That said, I agree with Jeff that HK and other manufacturers have little excuse for not being accurate with their designs, considering the availability of data, images and drawings.
