25 year old Revell / Monogram 1/48th scale B-17-F “My Devotion”

December 19, 2012 · in Aviation · · 1 · 4.3K

I built this back in 1987. I had built a -G before and loved the detail it had. When I bought the B-17-F I was disappointed to say the least with the detail. So I decided to make a try at kit bashing. I used the Revell "Knock Out Dropper" B-17-F fuselage, nose, top turret glass and tail wheel. Everything else is from the Monogram B-17-G including all interior,ball turret, wings, horizontal stabilizers and landing gear. Over the years I have added True Details wheels,Microscale decals, pilot & co-pilot .
