Andrew Horton Beautiful job! If you ever decide to give it a new home, I know of a museum that is looking for 1/48 B-17 builds.

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
https://themodellingnews.com..HjjDpzHZ6IpsJzEqDdI1ttzj5iAg

https://hlj.com/1-48-scale-b..aign=Scalemates+Product+Feed

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

29. September at 07:03:18
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.
4. October at 06:26:59
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.
4. October at 06:29:33
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
4. October at 18:57:41
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...

LUIS ALFONSO AGUIRRE MORALES Hi Holger: I have one in the resurrection stock :)....this old guy is not the best but is one of those models to make you smile and cry remembering deep memories stored in the fogs of the time!!!
1. October 2013 at 04:20:20
Holger Kranich Absolutely! I can still remember how i made the exhaust stains with a lighter ;)
1. October 2013 at 06:49:13
Es-haq Khosravi Any photos of the completed model? Couldn't find it in your albumes.

A 1956 mold still in use! Classic rivet monster, horribly inaccurate, but so nostalgic it cries to be finally built.

Es-haq Khosravi Is not accurate?
13. April at 19:48:47
Jeff Dick This was the last time the old 1960's Revell B-17 was molded. It was not a very good kit from the start. The newer molds are better, and the most accurate 1/72 B-17 is currently the new Airfix kit. The kit 04395 is good for collectors of B-17's, like me.

Carlos Cisneros In 1/48 that's all that there is to pick from. Monogram with the G and Revell with the F. Both are 1970s vintage. Everything out there today is a rebox of one or the other.
11. February at 19:21:43
Selman Yarar That's ok, what i wanted to point out is that the page contains a wrong review link.
11. February at 19:28:21
Selman Yarar Maybe the source of that mistake is that the 48th kit is numbered 04297 and de 72th one 04279 which is veery similar???
11. February at 19:30:25
Carlos Cisneros Ahhhhh... possibly a case of the fingers typing faster than they should...
12. February at 17:26:02
Wim van der Luijt followed the link....the first thing I see is 1:72 on the box art, yes the link is wrong, but it is also very obvious....have you reported the wrong link?

Selman Yarar Yes, i did

These are pretty good in outline and detail, but could use better engines, cowlings and propellers. Wing dihedral is too much, shim the top of the wing root to fix this. Inter cooler ducts need to be added.

MTaylor44 The nose canopy is not correct. It should have only 1 MG mount (not 3). The nose in this kit is from their B-17C.
19. September 2018 at 09:54:52
Jeff Dick I have an old vacuform nose to replace it. Being a B-17 aficionado for 40+ years now, I was over the moon when Academy released all these early B-17's. In spite of the mistakes, they are a definite gap filler for B-17 enthusiasts. All we need is an injection YB-17, and a conversion to make it a model 299. I have a few of the old Rareplanes vacuform kits, they need a lot of work!

Great for it’s time, raised lines, top of nose not flattened enough, causing the windscreen to look pushed up. This can be helped by masking the windshields so the top lines are straight across when viewed from the front. Wing taper is wrong and wingtips are too circular in plan form. Nose windows too squat and rectangular, should have radius on corners. Makes a good looking model.

This can be helped by masking the windshields so the top lines are straight across when viewed from the front. Wing taper is wrong and wingtips are too circular in plan form. Nose windows too squat and rectangular, should have radius on corners. Makes a good looking model.

Although it was the first plastic kit of the E, it is pretty simple but looks “OK”. If using the Yankee Doodle markings, the 97th BG repeated the blue and red wingtip stripes on the horizontal and elevators as well. For nostalgia builds it’s fun.

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.

These are pretty good in outline and detail, but could use better engines, cowlings and propellers. Wing dihedral is too much, shim the top of the wing root to fix this. Inter cooler ducts need to be added.

Inaccurate as hell, but has cool lap joints and rivets that look cool. They made the mistake of cloning the port nose windows to the starboard, and both sides have a forward waist window, both of which were never done. Otherwise it makes a cool retro desk model for cheap. They’re still making these! One even in Chrome!

For some reason, they moved the position of the adf football too high up the left side, it should be closer to the centreline like the first molds were. Much better tail wheel undercarriage than Monogram, needs to be cloned for the Monogram kit.

jriggen I recently acquired a kit for MONOGRAM #85-5614 148 The Visible B-17G Flying Fortress but the plans/instructions are missing. Is there any chance that I could talk someone into sending me a copy of the plans? Either scanned and emailed or copied and mailed is fine with me. I'm very willing to pay you for your efforts.

Thank you,

Jim
