Basically Starmax have produced a B-17 fuselage which needs a complete rebuild.
Cockpit canopy & fairing are completely misshapen, including the turret, which is a joke.
The chin turret's way too large
Nose windows NEVER extended that far back & are the wrong size & shape.
The waist gun windows are way too small & located too low (the left waist gun's where the elsan toilet should be).
The ball turret's too squashed, & has the guns sticking out the WRONG SIDE
The rear turret's oversize & looks like a greenhouse.
Landing gear's nowhere near scale
The landing lights were located ONLY outboard of the engine nacelles
The cowls are a joke, as are the superchargers
The bomb bay's too narrow & too far back
The only nice thing is the camo & decals.
