Academy B-17F

This article is part of a series:
  1.   Academy B-17F
  2. Update on Academy B-17
  3. Academy B-17 Update
  4. 99% Done Academy B-17
  5. FINALLY FINISHED

Had a few minutes tonight so figured I’d open her up and get the inside of the fuselage painted up and take look at the sprues. Being my first 1/72 scale aircraft I wasnt sure what to think and honestly still don’t. The directions are literally two pages and in 6 “action packed” steps the aircraft will be put together. The only oddity so far is that you have to actually cut out the right waist gunners window. Other than that I will post throughout this build and cant wait to see how she turns out!

  1. looks good. I am trying to decide what B-17 to get

  2. Have fun, Dylan! Ya don’t see many “E” models.

  3. Lookin’ good….be watchin’ your progress. 🙂

  4. Ditto the above, It’ll be nice to see.

  5. Here I am again, following Jeff, Craig, and Robert. I feel like Zeppo (ah, you guys are too young for the reference). Anyway, always great to see a fortress. If you want a closer look at the revell B17 in 1/48 I guess you could do worse than check this out…
