1:28 scale. Wingspan 45 3/4". Giant scale Balsa wood model kit by Guillows. The B-17 lived up to its flying fortress nickname during World War 2 when it penetrated deep into the Third Reich to blast German war production facilities. Bristling with machine guns, the G version of the B-17 was a formidable opponent for enemy fighters being able to absorb extensive battle damage and still survive to deliver its bomb cargo on designated targets. Flown by the Eighth Air Force, the B-17G proved the feasibility of strategic daytime bombing at a time when the concept was questioned because of losses suffered from enemy defenses during the early war years. The superior combat record of the B-17 won it a deserved reputation as one of aviations most successful bomber designs. The B-17G Flying Fortress was the most famous bomber during WWII. Guillow's magnificent scale model of this aircraft is a replica of the B-17G mural on the wall at the Smithsonian Institution. The balsa scale model is designed for .049 U/C flight or as a Build 'n Show display. Finely detailed plastic gun turrets and dummy engines, rugged landing gear and a sturdy wing/fuselage interlock. Build it with either movable or unmovable flying surfaces. For ages 14 and up.
