N66571 '09' B-17G

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'll post some photos soon, but keeping you guys updated.

 

The 'batplane' will be done with a B-17F kit, so this is going to be N66571 a 'G' with the right tail.. but lots of differences and mods needed to the kit, I have cut away all the bits I need to, and now working on getting it up to standard. Wings made up, and engines progressing.. just waiting for some etch to arrive from Hannants for the engines also. 

 

Really enjoying doing this... as I haven't been doing any modelling what-so-ever in the last few months... been busy with work and weekends learning to skydive, recently passing my AFF too, so just a few more solos and then I'm an A license holder. I should be able to pick up a bit more modelling then once that's sorted....

 

Here's a photo from Airliners of the one I'm building.. you can see it's quite modded from the old USAAF days, it was with Kenting Aviation Ltd before being converted to a tanker and used as a Photographic Survey aircraft.
