Greetings to all,

 

For a number of years, I`ve gazed upon the incredible works of art posted on this website.  Now I`ve decided to “dip my toe” in the waters of Britmodeller.  

 

I`m beginning with the Airfix B-17G.   I used AK Interactive Extreme paint and weathered the model by using a combination of paint, washes, and pastels.  I found the kit to be excellent and enjoyed the entire process.

 

Thank you in advance!!!!

Mike

 

PS : My apologies for my picture quality as my photography skills are very basic at best.

That’s a well built and finished B17, and I love the last picture with her ‘little friends’. Good job, glad you decided to post.

Super model Mike. The NMF looks very good. 

 

Nice weathering too, but the rear intercooler vents on the wing actually expelled air rather than dark exhaust gases, so the stains tended to streak around them rather than from them.

Terrific.  A great natural metal finish and nice weathring.  I'm quite interested in this kit. Looks like Airfix have pulled off the nose inserts for different variants better than Revell.De where it is more obvious that it is an insert.

Superb Fortress with the right amount of weathering over a well painted NMF scheme.

Hello Mike, good to have your works represented on the BM Forum!

You can be proud of your achievement.

The color scheme you have chosen looks very attractive, too!

Very convincing B-17!

Your NMF is excellent and demonstrates the late war "air superiority" of these amazing aircraft and their brave crews.

Top job.
