‘What If’ Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress Early production HK Models

Good day , after a long time I dared to show the finished model. It's a B-17 from HK Models in 1/48. Again, I'm excited about how well the model is made and how good it looks. It is a heavy and large piece of furniture. For the first time, I use[...]

Magnets!

This little trick I've tried before but it suits this HK Mdels 1/48 B17 perfectly. Basically, we all get fed up with not being able to see the interior detail when we're finished. Couple of magnets stuck as shown and the top comes off and on ver[...]

1/48th Boeing Fortress MkI (B-17C) Koster / Revell conversion

I've been working on this on and off for the last few months and have finished it off this week. I've used the classic Revell 1/48th B-17F kit and coupled it with Koster's vacformed beautiful early Fortress conversion set. This comprises a new[...]

Revell’s 1/48 B-17F/G Flying Fortress “Mini Movie Memphis Belle”
