Coastal Command Boeing Fortress 1

Recommended Posts

I got this kit as part of a spares / scrap joblot on Evilbay some time ago and despite some damage and a couple of missing parts thought it had potential so was worth rescuing.

 

The aircraft is a B-17C Flying Fortress Mk1 with RAF Coastal Command, servings in Nuts Corner, Northern Ireland 1942.

 

It was built for the recent B-17 Single Type Group Build here on BM, link below.

 

 

Here it is finished, biggest kit I've built for a long time, let me know what you think

 

cheers Pat

Good result. That can't have been easy brush painting something that size.

Hi Pat,

congrats on a beautiful B-17!!!

She sure looks great in Coastal Command scheme. These roundels make all the difference.

 

You've made another winner!

What's next?

That looks rather smart. I have one in the stash and will be a very happy boy if it turns out anywhere as nice as your one has.

Lovely.

 

Looking up at that ‘anti-flash white’ must have been quite intimidating for a submarine crew ...

Nice build and not so many early B17 models around, it is quite surprising how long the Fortress I lasted in British service in various guises
