    Thanks a lot guys for your kind words @lis, @davekight, @johnb, @fiveten, @gblair.

    First of all your build is amazing @lis, it's very impressive, I wish I could achieve such a work.

    Here are the latest progress of the Belle:
    I assembled the 2 half fuselage:



    I glued the nose panel with .50 caliber and tried to see how it looks with the plexi nose and the guns, well it's pretty crowded in there:


    Next steps:
    The wings, then some putty works and masking the clear parts.
    Thanks for passing by.

    Great job on your B-17, Bernard (@lis). The paint and finish is superb. These bombers can be very complex, and you have made it look easy. Looking forward to the figures and the diorama.

    Your B-17 is also coming along nicely, Yann (@yann). The interior looks great. It's too bad a lot of it won't be visible when you seal everything up, but we know it's in there. Well done.

    @yann
    great work! Did You need some putty and sanding to close fuselage?

    @gblair

    @johnb @fiveten Thank You! I do my best πŸ™‚
    PS. Second Gunner is ready. Could crewman has a small mustache on duty in the USAAF? Because this gentleman somehow has it πŸ™‚

    Looking great as well, Bernard @lis
    To me it looks possible that they had a mustache at that time.
