Hi Kev,

It's possible - but I can't find it!

Wow, well done!  Having been around plenty of grubby aircraft undercarriages in my life, I can say that you captured the dirt, grit, and grime of that area splendidly.  Bravo!

ykak​,

 

    Just an incredible build. The NMF is simply flawless as is every other area of the B-17, the close ups of the landing gear strut assembly is about as real as any modeler can ever hope to achieve. The moving box is truly a fantastic idea especially since the wings are removable.

 

    And the video is a fitting tribute to you and your build.   :wow:  :yahoo:  :wow:

Hmmm, my resolve on the HK Models B-17E/F is weakening. Really nice work. What AM stuff did you employ?

Thank you all from very much from your very nice comments :0) I really appreciate them. Just arriving to Stockholm taking my B-17 to " first mission" to IPMS 08 Open :0) with three other fellow modelers :0))
Ps. Just remind that more details from my B-17 project can be found from Work in Progress forum (B-17G D Day Doll April 1945)

Have a great weekend :0))!
