to me it seems like it's standing on tip-toes.

The oleos do seem "uncompressed".

I assume they looked at a museum based original and as they are in an unfuelled state they don't compress the undercarriage.

It's a common error made by model companies, as most museum based aeroplanes do not have the weight to compress the oleos.

Excellent weathering, my friend! I really like the exhaust-stains over the wings. Superb work, all round...

 

Thanks for sharing with us.

I actually used the Uschi van der Rosten splatter stencils to create the weathing effects.

 

I stand corrected.  Nevertheless, it is superb weathering.  I may need to get some of those splatter stencils.

One of the truly iconic WW2 planes and you nailed it for sure!

Your worn and stained OD finish looks superb.

I find 1/72 more manageable, myself, but I relish looking at B-17's in any scale - they really have an aura about them.

Well done!

Very nice Angelo.  That`s just how a B-17 looks.  Tired and beat up but pressing on.  Great results!!!!! :goodjob:
