Description

The B-17 Flying Fortress is arguably one of the most influential aircraft designs in history. More than 12,000 B-17s were produced during its production run, with the first prototype taking flight on July 28, 1935. Approximately a third of those produced were lost in combat. Despite a theoretical performance inferior to the other primary Allied strategic bomber, the B-24, the B-17 was generally preferred over the other craft by U.S. crewmen.

 

This model is built to precisely replicate the image of the B-17G, the final and definitive variant of the series, with thousands built. Tremendous attention to detail and a finishing color scheme to match the bright silver paint scheme used by the U.S. Army Air Force makes this model a prize piece to start or add to any collection.
