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!

Certainly the vast majority of modellers will be satisfied. Unfortunately (for me anyway), as an impassioned B-17 aficionado, “I can’t handle the truth”. So I have already sold my HK kit, and replaced it with a Monogram 1/48 B-17G, and Revell 1/48 B-17F, thanks to an incredible Ebayer, checkout coolneatthings a fellow Canadian who happens to have some very nice kits at very competitive prices.

Munkyslut Yeah that box art is very cool!
Sometimes I buy a kit regardless of the subject, scale or brand just cos the box art looks great ;)
21. December 2019 at 11:50:06
Jeff Dick I don't know if you have been to the box art den, but they have a huge collection. I also seek out box art photos on eBay, Pinterest, or just google searches. Jack Lleynwood, was a prolific artist for Revell and Aurora, his Memphis Belle art for the ancient Revell B-17 is my absolute favourite B-17 box art.
21. December 2019 at 12:26:12
Michael Hickey I like to take some particular box art and cut them out and stick them on my wall in my man cave. Hasegawa 1/48 Bf 109's have some great art work. Hasegawa's P-38J Virginia Marie is one of my all time favorites. :)
21. December 2019 at 13:29:07
Munkyslut Thanks for that Jeff I'll check out the den.
Some of my personal favourites are the 60's Airfix artwork by Roy Cross, also I'm a big fan of the 60's diecast artwork, especially Hot Wheels artist Otto Khuni.
21. December 2019 at 13:40:07
Jeff Dick I have them laminated on wood, I know that Virginia Marie art, I once had that kit, and it is one of the best schemes for a P-38 with that nice blue colour. My favourite Hasegawa 109 art, is the old 1/48 109E 4/7 Trop, taking off from the desert, sand flying everywhere. That desert camo is killer!
21. December 2019 at 13:41:52
Michael Hickey Jeff I know the Bf 109 one well I have it, built the kit a long time ago but I need to do a better version.

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.

After many exhausting hours of comparing with Boeing’s blueprints, technical drawings, photos of the real thing and Revell/Monogram’s 1/48 kits. I can safely say it is a pantographed reduction of the 1/32 kit, with a “corrected nose/ windscreen” and simplified interior. Problem, the vast majority of the kit is still based on the rivet enhanced Granger drawings. Very, very little of this kit jives with Boeing’s measurements, panel joints, rivet patterns, airframe components, the list goes on and on. It is still far far from accurate in shape and outline. The propellers, engines, nacelles, wings, majority of the fuselage, tail and interior components are still way off. It’s not an early G out of the box, because of the wing tip vents, you could make a Warbird with this kit as it is. Still very seriously out of whack with indisputable Boeing drawings and measurements in just about every possible way, due to the stubborn headedness of HK to actually retool the whole kit, based on readily available Boeing blueprints and measurements, angles, photos from the erection and maintenance manuals and the list of available accurate documents. I am EXTREMELY disappointed to say the least. In the sixties, this would have been “OK”. With the technology and data available today, this is completely unacceptable. You can’t base a 68 Ford Mustang model on someone’s erroneously constructed drawings, based on a 68 Chevrolet Camaro. That is my comparative analogy of what has taken place here. The vast majority of recently tooled kits are getting very close, to right on, with the subject, whether it be a P-51, Spitfire, T-55, P-38, etc. HK are clearly not listening and should pursue toy making or something else entirely. I will not be building this kit ever! It’s a slap in the face to any serious B-17 aficionado. I will be selling it for $75 US, or happily trade for 2 Monogram 1/48 B-17’s. A few parts are off the sprues, due to my research and measurements. So so dissatisfied with HK, I will never ever ever purchase another one of their kits.

Carlos Cisneros Ok, now I gotta ask, but how does the old Monogram G stack up against those Boeing drawings?
20. December 2019 at 22:49:53
Jeff Dick Actually for the most part spot on. I won't go into the interior too much in either case.
Monogram clearly states: "This accurately detailed model was designed from authentic drawings and photos of the B-17G. Also much technical information was furnished by Boeing Historical Services."
Now that was 45 years ago! Also a lot of the photos were taken from a "Gate Guard", consequently there are a few mistakes, that are easily fixed or modified. I am going to be brutally honest with no bias. Pros: Dimensions, cross sections, sweep angles, airframe geometry, are spot on. Complex shapes like fin, rudder, elevator and horizontals and wing tips, all match Boeing drawings. Propellers are excellent, engines are good, transparency placement and shapes match, navigation, formation and identification lights are molded on, but at least they're there. Pitot tubes are included, accurate and placed correctly. Markings provided are accurate for the production numbers.
Here are what I call "Modern Cons": Transparencies have distortions on the compounded curves, only one style of nose glazing, longer F style glazing was also used. Nine O Nine had both during its career, as did many others. surface detail is raised, trailing edges too thick, fabric detail was cool in its day, but is over scaled, no separate flaps, and the inner end of the flap panel line needs to be moved inward and corrected as per blueprint dimensions, the tail wheel/strut needs replacing, the wing vents are the early style (B-E), and as such, no Tokyo tank fillers. Missing wheel well detail, placement of main oleo to wing is 1 scale foot too deep, no ducts behind the oil cooler and inter cooler intakes. Missing inspection windows on chin turret and no zippers. Rudder access panels repeated on starboard side, there should only be one, just under the lower hinge. (Airfix 1/72 B-17 decals repeat this error, but so easy to correct haha). No separate Bomb bay details or doors on pre visible kits, on visible and on, racks go right to the top of the turtle deck, the bomb bay bulkheads are not angled back to 3.5 degrees, and the panel lines do not follow this. All very easy fixes, no major surgery required.
HK Modern pros: recessed panel lines (not recessed on real B-17), recessed rivets? (not recessed on any aircraft, period). Flattened and bulging tires, main wheel well details, tail wheel details? Slotted and more accurate main wing vents, separate flaps, open cowl flaps. Ducts for oil cooler and inter cooler intakes, clear wingtip nav lights. Separate entrance hatches. Nice top and ball turrets.
HK Modern cons: Not based on Boeing's blueprints, drawings or dimensions. Consequently the wing geometry is wrong, the complex outlines of the fin, rudder, wingtips are wrong. Fuselage cross sections too large, (fat fuselage), wing is not NACA 0018 at root, or 0010 at tip attachment. Fuselage angle from aft radio room is wrong, it puts the aircraft centre datum line over a scale foot too high at the end of the tail turret, meaning the fuselage is angled too far down, from the aft radio room bulkhead. The wing tips are the wrong shape and with the single nav light on the edge are only for a very late G, Even though it is covered in recessed/drilled out rivets, the patterns don't jive with the real thing, partly because of the incorrect shape and outline of the majority of the kit, and the individual responsible for adding rivet details to the Granger drawings. The trailing edge forward sweep angle is 1 degree out, causing the tip cord at attachment to be a foot to long. (Fat wing). Missing all seven of the formation lights, no nav lights on the fin, no blinker lights on the tail turret end plate, no identification lights! CIA B-17? Spurious panels and antennas from a Warbird. No pitot tubes! Position, shape of oil cooler intakes too high and close together. No deicer boot outlines, remember it's supposed to be an early G! What are those huge long slots on the back of the chin turret, running right through to the centre of the bottom supposed to be? Gear down oleos are fully extended, so inflight gear down or on jacks would be ok. The inside details of the bomb bay ceiling and doors And bulkheads are covered in ejector pin marks. The bomb bay bulkheads are integral with the wing spars, and as such should be angled back 3.5 degrees, actually quite noticeable on the real thing and Boeing drawings, externally the rivet patterns should follow the slope back also. The nose glazing has distortions, and the attachment cross section is too slab sided, narrowing to much, it just isn't right, additionally the early G had both long F style noses and the normal one as the kit supplies. The raised surface of the wing tank fillers and outer wing and tip connector covers are too high, easy fix. The turtle deck is too wide, because of the rest of the fuselage being too fat. The propeller blades have no twist. Vectors or Monogram is the way to go. The engines are missing details and providing other spurious ones. The exhausts visible on the outside nacelles of 2 & 3 are very late style, which would have shrouds covering them anyway, the majority of the the G's used the early glycol heating system (woefully inadequate), with the #2 exhaust having the tubing for that running back and forth along the outside, as per the Monogram kit. The separate flaps are not detailed even close to correctly, and the hinge is completely bogus, all B-17's had zap flaps, not split flaps. In other words, the leading edge of the flap was pushed further back as the flap lowered to 45 degrees, photos clearly show this. Split flaps are hinged at the leading edge and don't push back. Fuel tank drain blisters too small. Some access panels completely missing, or misshapen. I have probably missed a few things, either way if you were to take photos of the completed HK B-17's either scale, and completed Monogram or Revell B-17's and compare both to photos of the real thing, I can say with absolute certainty, that the HK B-17 will fail miserably. Sorry for the late long answer, but others will read this also. Why in heaven's name, HK did not follow Boeing's blueprints, drawings or photos, is beyond me! There are some modellers who love the HK B-17's. For the price point, along with the omissions and glaring issues, I would rather spend the extra time and money on the Monogram B-17G, and some detail sets, to easily outclass the HK by leaps and bounds. I am an old guy, and my daughter is helping me setup a blog with Wordpress, which will hopefully be up and running in January. There I will provide photos, to clearly illustrate the points I have made, plus several more. And for the Lancaster aficionados, just sock away and wait for the Wingnut Wings Lancasters, I am.
21. December 2019 at 02:28:06
Jeff Dick One more thing (in my best Peter Falk impersonation), those open cowl flaps on HK, provide zero details for the inside mechanisms, or what you can see in there when they are open. The huge gaps are almost parallel, they should wedge down to a point, with no gap, but rather the overlapping flap panels as per the real thing (so many photos of this).
21. December 2019 at 02:38:38
Wim van der Luijt Holy smokes Batman, he's writing a novel! :D All kidding aside, thanks for the in depth comparision. "Counting Rivets" will never be for me, but you are making me feel a lot better about the Revell B-17 in my stash. Looking forward to your blog on this!
21. December 2019 at 08:50:41
Carlos Cisneros Thank you so much for the detailed assessment of both kits. Looks like I'll purchase another Monogram G, and dress it up a bit.
I can't get over all these high price new tool kits that goof the basic shapes.

What an incredible treat for B-17 aficionados, when Academy released these early B-17’s. All of the Academy B-17’s lack inter cooler intake openings, cowlings have too small an opening, engines are not good, wing dihedral is too great. You have to give them credit for doing everything from B-17B to B-17H (SB-17G).

Treehugger Where do I find the 'intercooler intake' openings? On the wings, or around the engines? I looked at some photos, but don't know what to look for. I also looked at my sprues. I am sure something is missing or is off, but I wouldn't know what to look for. :)
21. December 2019 at 12:07:06
Jeff Dick Look for 2 rectangular depressions outside of engines 1 & 4 and inside of 2 & 3, just under the leading edge of the wings, you might want to open them up and add ducts, Or just paint inside dark grey.

I think the last production run for this mold was 96, under Revell Germany, with really unusual decals. If only it looked like the Jack Lleynwood box art! A collectable, or nice candidate for a nostalgia build.

The only kit of the YB-17 in 1/72 so far. It’s a female molded vacuform kit, with plenty of raised rivets. The C-D conversion is not worth pursuing with the Academy kits, and truthfully the YB-17 is best cross kitted with the Academy B-17B for best results.

Hasegawa’s B-17’s were a vast improvement over the Revell, Frog and old Airfix kits. However there are shape and outline issues with the wing planform and fuselage windshield area, the cross section suffers from the same problem as the HK 1/32 kit. Yet the rest of the fuselage is pretty close. Wingtips are more semicircular than the characteristic Boeing shape. Wingtip vents are ok for the G, not for the early F. Wing vents are E and earlier type, and need dishing out and resizing. Showing it’s age, Hasegawa has announced a 2019 release as A Bit O’ Lace, probably just new decals. The Cheyenne turret is not the best, lacking the correct outer details. Now even with continued releases, more of a collectable or a nice candidate for a Nostalgia build. They need to retool a new one, to fit in with their B-24’s.

A few minor glitches, radar housing is too far forward, only the marking without nose art, is accurate for the Cheyenne turret equipped Forts. Cheyenne turret on all NT Airfix B-17’s is not configured with the top pear shaped window, the joint seams are right in the middle of where the window is located. Carve out and replace with clear sheet or Crystal Clear.

This kit is 1/64th scale, ‘S’ to the railway/railroad people. It is clearly based on the Wylam drawings and as a result is way off the mark as far as accuracy goes, (left and right fuselage halves are mirrored as are the Wylam drawings. I do love the surface detail, in the way it portrays the lap joints and very fine raised rivets. Comes with a very cool stand, and looks good displayed in the corner of a rec room or den/modeller cave, with only the port side visible. Still being made, it was released with build it yourself electric motors, (they scarcely operate properly), a chrome version, and latest is a Nose Art nostalgic version. Fun for a nostalgia build, and a good first B-17 kit for younger or less experienced modellers. The electric engines have not been included since the late 70’s. Also reasonable prices on older boxing’s if you are shrewd at eBay searches etc.

Original issue of the Revell B-17F. The ADF antenna (football) is in the right place here, just left of the centreline. For some unknown reason, later boxing’s had the ADF antenna moved up and away from the original correct position? Beats me.?

Spot on with the Monogram G, parts are interchangeable, such as engines, cowlings, wheels. It is an early F, so out of the box you are limited to an early F. Bill Koster, made aftermarket vacuform parts and transparencies to make it as a late E or mid to late F. The tail wheel struts are more accurate than the Monogram kit. Wing roots need bolstering if you want to keep them removable. This version has much better decals for Memphis Belle. Zotz Heavenly Bodies B-17F’s (E’s also) designed for this kit, offer 14 different markings for ETO, MTO and PTO B-17’s, as well as US National insignias from 1942 - 1945 including operation Torch. Many Modellers have cross kitted this with the Monogram G, to make a better? F. The interior is lacking in details, however you can’t see the waist compartment with the windows closed, and early F’s had smooth cloth covered insulation from the radio room to the nose.

Second rendition of the Visible B-17, grey plastic, and additional parts from the ProModeler 1/48 B-17G for a Cheyenne turret. Different decals than the first one. Unfortunately, Monogram’s Bomb bay goes right to the top of the turtle deck, really easy to fix, if you care to show it off.

Based on Boeing’s drawings, it has the right shape and outline and is 1/32 scale. It looks better if you notch the fuselage formers so the stringers are flush with the formers. Due to the construction and weight, it doesn’t fly well, but can be worked into a nice ceiling display model. The kit is now getting harder to find, but not highly priced by the uncaring seller. In the movie “Being There”, with Peter Sellers. The actor playing the US President, (the late Jack Warden) is seen building this kit on a coffee table. Cheap thrills for a B-17 or Stick and Tissue modeller.

After some extensive research using photos and Boeing’s blueprints, the Winner of the most accurate 1/48 B-17 kit, for 45 years running is..........wait for it!.........
Monogram! And yes, by leaps and bounds. Initially I was optimistic, about the HK kit, looking at the cockpit nose fix, but as I have now compared both the Monogram kit and the HK kit in the flesh, against Boeing drawings, measurements, plots, the Majority of the HK kit is still based on a retraced and riveting detail added version of the old Aero Data/Granger drawings, with better airfoil shape, but not wing plan form. So essentially a 1/48 version of the 1/32 kit, with simplified interior and components. Legally they can say all new tool, because it is a different scale, with some corrections made, however the dimensions of the rest of the fuselage circumference remain too big, also the wings and tail components remain the same, only scaled down. The rivet patterns also remain the same, but smaller scale. In the end, to the average person or Modeller, it’s a nice kit. If you are a 40+ years of research, die hard B-17 aficionado like myself you’re not going to be throwing a party anytime soon. At the price point compared to the 1/32 kit, I can afford to add it to my collection and maybe other versions, depending on what other corrections are made, regarding wingtips, vent styles etc. As far as the interior goes, I am more of a get the shapes, dimensions, raised rivets, screws, fasteners, lights, antennas and markings accurate. Those are the first things you see when observing service photos or accurate museum restorations. Aftermarket parts are the norm these days for interior and exterior details, both in PE and resin, as well as decals. It makes a great Christmas present or personal gift, and would make a stunning cutaway model with the skin removed. Bare aluminum foil would show off the drilled out rivets and even give the illusion that they are raised in the right lighting conditions. I can actually recommend this kit for the Neophyte Fortress modeller.
I have a plethora of indisputable photos and Boeing’s drawings to prove my claims. I have no access to my computer with all of my top graphics programs, until next year some time and am operating from my daughters iPad 5gen. iOS 13.3.
If someone could be so kind as to where and how to post a proper review with good quality photos and data, from this pitiful little iPad, I would be forever grateful, I would love to get this out there ASAP somehow. Any and all recommendations gladly welcome.

Although a flying model, it could also be made as a static display model. The shape and outline are very accurate and based on Boeing’s model drawings. With thin balsa sheeting, it looks every bit the part, except for the flimsy clear parts. With some revisions and aftermarket 1/32 bits, (it is 1/32 scale) this could blow any other 1/32 B-17 kit, out of the water! A diamond in the rough. Free plans are online in PDF. At various vintage flying model sites, like outerzone.uk or hip pocket aeronautics. Also look for John Bell’s B-17 drawings, just a 3 view with wing and fuselage stations specifically for building a 1/40 model (I have the originals). I am not sure if he rescaled them on his cleaned up drawing. He did add some extra detail not on the originals by Boeing. They are free, and when you compare them to the Granger drawings, you can see how far off the mark the Granger drawings are (also free), they can be found under other names, but are unmistakabley recognizable by the flat bottomed much too thick airfoil and the fat fuselage, as well as everything else being the wrong shape, taper, etc. They’re free if you really want to see what Combat, ID, and HK based their 1/32 kits on.

Ironically, they cloned the clear parts from the Sterling balsa kit! Which itself was based on accurate Boeing drawings. That wing root airfoil section is the dead giveaway that it’s based on the Granger drawings, seen in the Aero Data No.8 Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress book, then the compendium of Bombers by the same publishers, and now all over the WWW, this viral inaccurate drawing is responsible for so many inaccurate kits both flying and static. And it’s not just the air foil section, the whole drawing is flawed! Nose to tail and tip to tip. Seek only Boeing building drawings, not general arrangement drawings. Or if you want to build a real one, the full set of Boeing B-17 blueprints are available from the Smithsonian.

Really wish all the decal manufacturers would print 4 group markings. The MTO B-17’s that used the final group emblem, also placed them on top of the horizontal stabilizers! You have to buy 2 sheets if you want accuracy!

Why on earth did they clone the complete tail wheel strut, when it looks nothing at all like the real thing? Should do a tail wheel strut correction just by itself, they would sell thousands!

The Britmodeller link is for the 1:72 version. This mistake made me buy an antique kit with raised panels. I'm quite angry about that.

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 2019 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 2019 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 2019 at 19:30:25
Carlos Cisneros Ahhhhh... possibly a case of the fingers typing faster than they should...
12. February 2019 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?
12. February 2019 at 18:54:53
Selman Yarar Yes, i did
13. February 2019 at 09:21:22
Warren Inman Now you have the choice of a new-mould one.
25. November 2019 at 00:55:03
Soeren . Not really, if you mean the HKM kit, which is a G and not a F ;), but the chances that a F will follow are quite high
25. November 2019 at 06:09:26
Warren Inman You are correct.

playtime 222 1978 garbage with raised panel lines :(
23. February 2017 at 09:52:58
gorbygould But for a 1/48 B-17 it's pretty much the only game in town. And cheap.
23. February 2017 at 10:06:52
playtime 222 Can't argue with that, Gorby. Jbm is new to this gig and this would be a pig of a build.
23. February 2017 at 10:24:49
wilky Hasegawa and Monogram also do 1/48. Or is the Monogram kit the Revell tool or the other way around?
23. February 2017 at 10:41:36
playtime 222 From the full product timeline (click on the 1978 New Tool to see the whole picture not just the 2 entries), it's based on the 1975 Monogram. The Revell is supposed to have less internal details than the Monogram too. Hence, I'm inferring raised panel lines and poor fit from the reviews of the earlier boxings. I know there are several 'New Part' versions after this which may have corrected some of it but I doubt it.
23. February 2017 at 11:25:16
gorbygould It looks like the Hasegawa is also from the original Monogram tooling, also, I have never seen one for sale.
23. February 2017 at 14:57:40
playtime 222 Plenty at Hannants and the AviationMegastore... if you can afford to shop there :D
23. February 2017 at 15:01:14
gorbygould The answer to that Playtime is 'No',
23. February 2017 at 15:04:34
wilky I won't buy from Hannants. They have a minimum spend for Australian buyers and gouge on shipping. I have purchased from Aviationmegastore but they are expensive too, they have stuff that I can't seem to source elsewhere
23. February 2017 at 18:06:03
Warren Inman Why is it garbage just because it has raised panel lines? Are they any less accurate that the idiotically huge engraved ones they use nowadays? Look at an aircraft from ten or so metres away and they mostly disappear anyway.
25. November 2019 at 00:56:34
Carlos Cisneros Not to mention that real B-17s had overlapping skin panels, and raised rivets. Recessed panel lines representing butt joined skin panels, and recessed rivets replicating flush rivets are more inaccurate. Raised panel lines look more like overlapping skin panel lines.
Granted that the old Monogram molds are getting old and soft in detail after more than 40 years of usage. But if you can get your hands on an older issue kit, the detail will be much more crisp.

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.

Paul Moore How do you add what kit this is to your project? This is not scratchbuilt. I see the options of kits, but can't seem to attach the kit to the project? Thanks.

Christian Keller Thanks, these P47 (and B24 and B17) are all shown in the book "assembly ships of the mighty eight". With my colleages we had the idea to build them all in 1/72. You will find them under www.scaleknights.ch ;)

Jeff Dick
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!
