I am finally getting around to starting on my Academy/Minicraft 1/72 B-17C, for our group's Pearl Harbor 75th Anniversary build. I want to add a little detail to the interior, using plastic & stuff (No commercial aftermarket parts). I have already scratch-built the supercharger & intercooler intakes. I am ready to start on the cockpit, but I am not sure if the B-17C actually had 4 seats or only 2. A google search wasn't very informative. Are they the same type of seats that were in the B-17G, with the same elaborate truss structure? Does anybody have any good photos, showing any other details in the cockpit, especially the sidewalls and the rear wall? One of the drawings I found online, which is said to show a B-17B, shows the cockpit floor as higher for the pilot & co-pilot, and lower behind them. Is that correct? I am also looking for detail in the nose compartment. Are there any books that have the info I am looking for? Most of the details I have been able to find is only for the B-17G, and sometimes the B-17F. Larry lengesath(AT)cox(DOT)net
