1/48 Monogram B-17G Mount-N-Ride

Recommended Posts

Since there's a new 1/48 B-17G being released, I decided I needed to build my old Monogram kit! Model was built OOTB.

Decals are from PYN-UP. Kept the weathering on the lesser side since this was a low-time plane that flew only about 10 missions. This kit takes some elbow grease and planning, but still goes together well for its age. By the way, the wayward gun barrel on the top turret has been repaired!

Didn't get every result I'd hoped for with this build, but I finally have this nose art I've wanted on the shelf! Comments, questions, and critiques welcome! Cheers!
