  3. Hi guys, When I joined the forum I introduced myself as a 1/48 scale modeller, however having some Christmas money to spend on a recent trip to my LMS i was drawn in by a shiny box and I knew it would be my next build despite having a 1/24 Typhoon to go at! So here we go, my first proper WIP (I did build a P-51d in the group build but never posted in the main section of the forum) will be the new tool 1/72 Airfix B-17g. I built a B-17 as a kid but this one will be quite a bit better than that one, hopefully. To add a disclaimer, I'm not a scratch builder, having never done it I wouldn't know where to start, so this kit will be completely OOB warts and all, assuming there are some, so please bear that in mind and be patient with me When I get around to it I will be adding an Eduard mask set as there's no way I am cutting tape to some of the sizes required, it's just mental. Enough waffle heres the box shot: A shot of the sprues and lastly the bird I shall be building, going for the 1945 version Wish me luck, always grateful for any hints and tips along the way. Progress to follow in a few days hopefully, wanted to get the thread started. Cheers Ant
  4. Dear Fellow Modellers If you work at your old Academy B-17 you can get something reasonable out of it. I scratch built interior for the lower cockpit entry compartment radio room and rear fuselage. Interior dressed up with Eduard photo etch and Quickboost oxygen bottles. Scratch built seats for the Bombadier and Navigator. Wing dihedral adjusted with plasticard shims and filler. Exterior received rivets and extra panel lines. Quickboost engines and cowlings with added ignition wiring. Squadron Vac-form canopy, nose and turret. Quickboost 0.50 gun barrels. All other windows cut to shape from acetate. Landing light lens from ‘Little cars’. I know the engine staining seems a bit vivid but I based it on pictures shown in the B-17 'Haynes Manual'. Anyway, hope you like it? Andrew
  5. I want to build a stinger tail turret for my B-17. Does anyone have any good side by side type drawings/photos of the stinger and cheyenne please?
