Excellent work, i hope you have the room to display it all when finished. I don't know if you have this or not, it's the parts catalog for the B-17 that shows all sorts of bits and pieces:

Great work Fozzy! You've got me worried now..... If it's going to take you another 3 years to finish the rest of it, and you work faster than I do, how long will it take me to finish my B-17?!

Good to see you back, Martin! I suspect that as you move further aft along the airframe, each section will be quicker to complete, as there's a lot less going on in the rear sections than up front.

Hi Kev....yes that is true of course but there will be a few niggly parts I will have to overcome ...but that's the game isn't it?...cheers

 

 

This is fantastic.  Just great, Fozzy.  Really appreciate you sharing your work.
