Very nice ! An inspiration.

I've got the same aircraft to build in 1/48th also using the Kits World Decals. I was a little unsure if I'd chosen the right aircraft to build but having seen yours I think I have.

I hope mine comes up half as good as yours !

Very nice job there, how did you do the chipping?

Very nice job there, how did you do the chipping?

To replicate the paint chips on the outer left wing, I dipped an old brush in Vaseline creme and covered the spots to remain Aluminium.

Layers of faded Olive Drab were sprayed over.

With a moist tissue, the Olive Drab was wiped away after it had dried out, revealing the "chipped aluminium" effect.

This is a very safe technique that does not affect the paint underneath.

The Revell kit is not my favourite B-17G kit in 1/72, but what you've done with this one makes it one of the best 1/72 B-17 models I've seen. I very much like the painting and weathering - excellent work.

:goodjob: That is a fantastic B-17! :goodjob:

The worn, chipped effect is incredibly realistic, and I love the technique you used, I will be trying that out!

And what nostalgia with the Airfix box art too.

Great model, well done!
