  1. A copy of this initial review was sent to Neil Yan of HK. Following are his comments on the review and on the kit.

    Thank you so much for your review of B-17E/F. I can see there are lot of effort you made on this large plan. For this release. we will only provide the B-17E and F version. and there is no early G part included. I am sorry for the sample we sent that with some part from late G version. as there are many sprue and parts involved. For this release, we will provide 3 options parts and markings for modeler to choice and build. There are B-17E Chief Seattle, B-17F Knockout Dropper( single gun nose) and B-17F Memphis Belle versions. The total number of tools are 22 molds, 55 sprues and nearly 800parts. Resin casting bullet track. 3 decal markings. that made the packaging very heavy. I wish modeler could happy with this B-17E and F new release.

     

    For the nose part for Memphis Belle and Knockout dropper. we did some modifications already with the nose parts and top turret.

     

    Currently we are still busy with the injection of kit and finalizing the decal design for 3 markings. It is really lot of work. I am expect we could release this B-17EF within 2-3weeks time.

     

    Here enclosed you the box art of this release. and the draft version of 3 markings for your information.

     

    Thanks again for your reviews.

     

    Regards,

  2. Glad you enjoyed the article Phil. I volunteered to do this kit out of the novelty. During the build, I had to do a lot of research to find out just who was Captain Harlock. I wanted to sound somewhat knowledgeable with my write-up. I kind of like Anime but I had not known of Captain Harlock. I took the model to our local club meeting last night and three of our members enthused over the build. They said "You built Captain Harlock!". It is amazing what all we modelers pay attention to.

     

    One of our members will be buying Kei's bird for his wife. She likes pink planes.
