  1. Yes another B17. The subject is a B17G-70-DL serial 44-6954 during operation Chowhound. This operation was launched to save the starving people in the Netherlands because they were dying from lack of food after a gruesome winter. The American and British airforces dropped food after negotiations with the Germans to allow a safe passage for the planes. The bombers flew at a low altitude with marginal crews to drop the food for the Dutch people. air_flyingfortress2 liquid-8-or by Rick Martens, on Flickr This is what I would like to create. I know that the plane was from the 569th BS / 390 BG. Ther name of the plane was Liquid-8-Or. The only coloured image I gound on the net is this one jk_b-17g_ccf-2 by Rick Martens, on Flickr I do not know if this is correct but a yellow rudder and a diagonal yellow stripe on the starboard wing is all? And even more important, the plane was a veteran with over 70 missions. Was there any nose art? I cannot find it maybe anyone her can tell me? I have ordered boxes 10 in 1 menu scale 1/35 and I have a crew, must figure out a way to make a tail gunner and how to fit the ball gunner inside the ball turret. As far as I can see in the picture there is not a top turret gunner. I want to make the propellors turning, where can I obtain the electro engines? It will be a in flight model. the base will be a large picture in black and white taken during the operation. Also a challenge will be the support for the plane. Because of its seize and weight it is something I have to figure out. The support will be hidden from vieuw by the rationboxes, it will also hide the wiring for the engines. 110_4332 by Rick Martens, on Flickr 110_4338 by Rick Martens, on Flickr And it is big 110_4333 by Rick Martens, on Flickr the crew 110_4381 by Rick Martens, on Flickr I made a modest start, added straps to the oxygentanks made out of alufoil. This will be by far the most ambitious thing I have done so far but I am looking forward to the ride! Rick.
