Hey guys remember me?
August 6, 2016 in Aviation
Well it’s certainly been a while since I posted anything on iModeller so I thought I would show you what I’ve been building in the last couple of years,I’ll kick off with a civilianised B17 G based on the lovely Academy 1/72 kit and using decals from Draw decal by Tim Bradley.
The kit was a pleasure to build as you would expect ,the decals however are a little problematic as they do not respond well to Microsol but with patience a nice result can be achieved.
The story is that TWA bought a post war B17 and kitted it out with a basic airliner interior, the idea was to seek out potential passenger routes in the middle east but the aircraft was sold on after a year or so to the Shah of Persia (Iran) and eventually ended up in France being scrapped in 1970.
Thanks for looking N
