This B-17G model kit is a Monogram, now Revell-Monogram, classic. It is a huge model that is fun to build. The kit has been around for a long time and is the only 1/48 scale kit available of this magnificent World War II bomber. The interior, engines, guns, and landing gear have plenty of detail for the novice and expert modeler alike. The kit also includes a bomb cart, 4 bombs and a few aircrew figures for display purposes. The instructions are straight forward, the decals are the normal Monogram-Revell quality, a little thick but fairly decent. The decals allow for two different paint schemes, either olive drab over neutral grey or an all natural aluminum finish. A nice brochure with photos and tips on how to build a diorama is also included if one desires to make a diorama to display the finished model. Plenty of aftermarket decals and other accessories for the B-17 are avialable through online hobby retailers like Squadron.com, MeteorProductions.com and SprueBros.com, to name a few. I built my model just using a set of aftermarket decals, with some hand crafted details and an airbrushed finished paint job. The completed model more than met my expectations. Most of the pieces fit together very nicely. I had to apply some putty along the bottom edge of the wing to fuselage joints and to one edge of both waist gunner windows. Other than that everything came together quite well. I am more than likely going to purchase another one soon and hang the next one from my ceiling.

I am so glad the old Monogram kit was reissued by Revell-Monogram.
I stubbornly resisted its allure when first issued, in favor of 1/72nd
scale subjects. Then, my eyesight began deteriorating, Hello, 1/48th
and 1/32nd scale.

At first glance, this kit is daunting. It's complexity and wealth of details are amazing. This kit is much more complicated than just add glue and shake the box.

The 26-inch wing will force the use of glue clamps. I had spoken of the utility of glue clamps in the review of Testor's SR-71, but this kit demands them. The interior bulkheads were a concern; I remembered the early Monogram efforts in the 1960's with fuselage halves not fitting flush, just to accomodate a single cockpit bulkhead - fit was SUPERB, however. Be forewarned that the fuselage joining will require intense concentration; all those interior components have to fit just-so for a seamless closure. Watch where you place your fingers because of the many areas requiring glue when cementing the fuselage together.

Monogram did its homework. Kit engineering is nearly flawless, and the instruction sheets are a joy to behold; all those little pieces are clearly sketched and their locations are unambiguous.

The cockpit, navigator quarters, and bombardier's perch are very
detailed and fortunately quite visible through the transparencies. The clear plastic parts are suitably thin and crystal-clear. The waist gunners, ball turret, and tail gunner finally get their moments in the sun.

Strangely, although bombs are supplied and delicate scribing detail the bomb bay, the fuselage has the bomb bay doors in closed position; that was remedied with a razor saw.

This is a very large model which can make it a little hard to handle at times.
BUT, once you are done, it is an accomplishment to be proud of.

This was my first big build and it was awesome. The interior detail is amazing but sadly obscured (in large part) once the fuselage is glued together. The fuselage went together well but I had some difficulty with the wing/engine nacelle area fitting correctly but nothing some styrene shims couldn't handle.

The panel lines are raised but the elevator/flap areas are deeply recessed which I found very nice when adding a pastel wash. The negative on this model is that there's a lot of masking to be done on clear parts. I know that this isn't a quality issue but simply an aircraft model with a lot of glass. I don't know if my method of masking clear parts is bad, but I found it very time consuming. Also, if you plan to build gear down and hang on the ceiling, keep in mind that the included tires are molded partially flattened to simulate weight from a sitting plane.

Overall, this is a great model, great price, and I enjoyed it enough to get some of the other 1/48 bombers in the series.

This model is awesome. Google up some images of dioramas others have produced and you'll get the idea of it's potential. Worth every penny and hour spent working on it. Check out the following for and example: [...]

This isn't a "shake the box" model. It takes patience and skill and a large budget for paint to make this happen. I purchased and built this as a gift to a neighbor that served in England during WWII loading bombs into these things. I decorated this one to match his unit's colors, and built it to museum quality. He was blown away!
