N66571 '09' B-17G

Recommended Posts

Thanks all for the replies, I've been away all week and my minds been drifiting at other B-17's, (fire bombers still) so the Bat Plane isn't final, but will have a good think as the build progresses.. I've plenty to get on with before I can make up my mind. 

 

I have done some work on it while I've been away, I just haven't had time to get any decent photos which I shall hopefully tonight.

 

Thanks for looking in!

So, working out what I needed to do to make the Bat Plane, I've just gone and bought a E/F kit to go along side the G so I can have two built up... but the G is also being built as a fire bomber just another smart scheme. Less work needed to do, but still need to get rid of the turret points etc... it's on the bench, just... such a big kit! 

 

I'm not painting anything inside that won't be seen as it's just a waste of my time, so I will only be doing the cockpit and nose sections....

Progress will be slow but i'm hoping to have 60-70% done by Telford 2019.. for my display. Work is so busy at the moment, finding time to do anything else is hard. But it's a nice break from putting together Amodel kits that for sure!

I built  the hk.models b17 g as a  Kenting air services plane 1960's area. A lot of mods but it was fun as I had the proper information for it. Taking off the nose chin gun was easy but getting sheet plastic to conform to the nose was a hassle. I entered in a model contest here in Edmonton one year and it was stolen later so somebody took notice. I will never build another but I might buy the b17f.

@LSP_Kevin Any chance of this being moved back into the main Work In Progress... it's never going to be done for this GB, but I do have an update to do! It's come on quite a bit.... :)

 

 

We can definitely do that, but you do have till January of 2020 hits to get done.............If that still is not enough time, we can move it over if you like.

I'm pretty certain it won't be done... so it can go over.  I'll get an update done in the next day or two :)
