My HK B-17G Build

Recommended Posts

I am building the HK b-17g flying fortress in 1/32 scale. The kit is very well constructed and looks like it will be a joy to build. I will make updates to my build as I get more done. feel free to ask any question you may have, I will do my best to answer them.

well, I have inspected the kit finally, and I must say it is incredible. Aside from the numerous pin marks, everything looks very well done.

So far I have nearly finished two engines, and today finished the cockpit. I am not using any extras aside from a few decals that I have printed up.

Nice work.  I'm also building one of these giants but it's only for me.  I promised myself I'd keep this one off the site so there's no tendency for burnout.  I'm just coming back from a year's long burnout.

I just created the plywood texture using the programs I have, and then print it out on the testors decal paper. For this one I use the white backing.

And here is the full resolution image to use, just print it out at a size that fits what your making.
