  1. Hello everyone, here's my finished B-17F "Memphis Belle" in 1/72 by Revell: This is a great value model kit and the detail is impressive OOB. I did scratch build some oxygen tanks for the upper turret and ammo boxes/consoles for the bombardiers/navigators section and added cables to the landing gear but other than that, built as is. As ever, I try and learn new things each time I tackle a new kit and this one was no different! Some of the main fit issues with this kit are the perspex nose and clear parts for the side walls in the bombardier/navigator compartment and th
  2. Hi guys, I will build the 1/72 Revell B-17F. I will build it out of the box including one of the options. The option I chose is "the Shamrock Special" It is a plane from the 8th Air Force and belonged to the 401st Bomber Squadron that was attached to the 91st Bomber Group. Here are some pictures of what is in the box. The plane I chose. And I have already started the model this weekend at a SIG meeting from the IPMS. I have made the bombbay and placed it on the left fuselage halve. It is not much, but a start. Cheers,

  4. So, a giant box arrived on my doorstep yesterday. Though it says B-17G it's something a tad bit different. This is my test shot copy of HK's forthcoming B-17F. I'll be building this one for an upcoming Model Aircraft article. I'll also be running the first WIP of sorts of this kit here for you. Though I can't show everything what I will do is highlight some of the features of the new kit as well as share some intermediary pics of progress here and there. I'm currently wrapping up the Dornier Do335A kit, and will be moving into this one throwing the full Eduard assortment at it (using as
  5. Hi Everyone, Here is my first completed build during my week off. This kit has to be one of my favourite builds of the year so far. It comes with decals with 2 different decal schemes for 2 different B-17s : The Memphis Bele and The Shamrock Special. I have chosen to build the kit as the Memphis Belle with the following details : B-17F-10-BO, serial 41-24485, DF-A, Memphis Belle, 8th Air Force, 91st Bomb Group, 324th Bomb Squadron, Bassingbourn, UK, May 1943 Anyway here are the photos : Thanks for looking. Comments are welcome. Rick
  6. Hi Everyone, This will be the WIP thread for my next build project, the Revell 1/72 scale B-17F Memphis Belle. This is likely to be a challenging kit as it is a skill level 5. There are 9 sprues of light grey plastic and 1 clear sprue. The total number of parts in this kit are 235. The decals for the kit are also fairly comprehensive. I have already washed the kit to make it ready for painting. I will be working on this in conjunction with my USS Ronald Reagan kit. Anyway here are the photos of the grey sprues. More photos to follow as soon as progress starts. Cheers, R
  7. Hello fellow modelers, I am looking for the colors of the nose art of a B-17F that crashed in the Netherlands, near the town of Zegveld, in february 1944. The plane was named San Antonio Rose, and the nose art depicts a girl with a lasso, which wraps around the two nose windows on the port side. I have a b/w picture... We are building a model of this particular B-17 for a memorial display on May 15-16, so any help regarding the colors would be greatly appreciated! Regards, René
