June 7, 2024 · in Aviation · · 22 · 251

This is 1/48 HKM’s B-17G-15 (42-31353) LG-Q named “Queenie” from 91st BG, 322nd BS in Bassingbourn –England April 1944.

I have used Eduard instrument panel and seat belts in the cockpit.
I shortened the length of the landing legs by approximately 1.5mm. Main landing leg scissors are Aerocraft customized products.
Wheels are from Eduard Brassin set.
Paints are Gunze Sangyo acrylics

Happy modelling
