Revell/Monogram B-17G

I built this over a decade ago, and there are many things I'd do differently now if I tackled this same project. At the time though I was really happy with it. It was the first major re-scribing job I did, and I added a lot of aftermarket, including True Details resin wheels, Squadron vac clear parts, Karaya metal gun barrels and a couple of Eduard photo-etch sets. Markings are my own.

Hi Mike,

not the scale we normally see from you but great! The repaired wing gives some drama to it and i´m just a B-17G nerd😢 Love that plane and your work on it!
