The first B-17 took off in 1935 from Boeing field in Seattle, Washington. Seattle Times reporter, Richard Smith dubbed it the Flying Fortress and Boeing made sure the name stuck. The B-17 went from design board to flight test in less than a year! It served the U.S. Army during WWII as 12,726 were made. American Commander in Europe, General Carl Spaatz said, "without the B-17, we may have lost the war."

This is definitely a challenging build but if you get stuck I reached out via email and was walked through a couple steps very nicely. Thanks for an awesome B-17 model a lot of work went into the detail of this plane.
I don’t have it and I don think I’ll be able to get it any time sone but it looks and sounds amazing.
