  1. Thanks for the comments. And yeah, you busted me! My attention to detail is sorely lacking.
  2. Thanks for the compliment James. I have a TON of pics of the various sub-assemblies as I built them. Try here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/127125333@N05/page1/ I can post more here if people want. I used a total of about 9-10 bottles of Alclad 2 in various shades of aluminum with Airframe Aluminum being the main one. I actually had to dull down the wings because they looked chrome plated. Yes Jeroen, I used a lot of Eduard, everything they make but the Flaps Thanks everybody for the compliments.
  3. More detail work....There was a TON of fiddly bits on this thing!
  4. More fun.... A couple interior shots: I decided to add some lights to illuminate all the detail that is closed up inside. Thanks for looking!
  5. Helo Everybody, I've been a lurker on this site for quite some time, admiring all of the excellent work done by everybody here, I've never posted a build before. So, this is my first build post on this site. This B-17 is the 4th aircraft I've built since getting back in the hobby after a 35 year hiatus. I have well over 400 hours over a 14 month period building this beast. IMO, it is an excellent kit. The detail is amazing and most of the kit engineering was amazing as well. I've used just about every Eduard PE set available except the flaps, maybe on the next one.... I used the Profimodeller Landing Gear set and the Eduard Brassin wheels and 50 cal machine guns. It took 9 bottles of various shades of Alclad to paint her. I think the Alclad came out amazing and to me, it looks like a metal aircraft. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy looking at my finished results:
