Flaps, retracts and a bomb drop. Other than the crap camo I like it so far. Need more details and the obligatory video.

Thats nice. Sand off the lower nose turret and repaint it and make it Memphis Belle.

Nice other than its banana hobby. I am thinking of going with the PW-RC B-17 seeing that its bigger and its not sold by BH.

Come on, lets not do this. If you like the plane then great, don't post just to be negative towards BH. Lets enjoy the goodness that is the B-17.

I agree about the camo. Looks decent otherwise.

It will be a breath taker with a better paint scheme

Its either J-Power or Art-Tech. The foam texture says Art-Tech but I could be wrong.

Wow- That actually looks very nice. With a little detailing and a new paint job it would really be outstanding.
I think the green on green camo shown in the pics is actually not too far off, early
B17's (including the famous Memphis Belle) had a "somewhat" similar scheme.

Just OD and gray. No camo pattern.

Well, that sure is one picture/version of the Memphis Belle in solid OD, but I have seen many pics where it wore a green/green camo, including a black and white wartime pic of the crew celebrating after their 25th mission, running from a clearly camoflaged Memphis Belle that sits in the backround. I would post/copy pics of the camo version if I could figure out how. I'm sure someone will chime in with some camo pics of the Belle or add more info, but the pic above is not the only correct version of the Memphis Belle. Do a little research and you'll see what I mean.

There is a little picture of a mountain next to the globe with a chain link on it. Click the mountain and paste in the image link.

Oh and I did do some research. The pinup changes from a blue dress to a red dress but all I found was OD and gray. Lets have some fun though and find pictures and post them up.





I think this is the shot your looking for and there is not enough there to tell if it is camo or not. It seems way too sparse more like grim of sorts but a top view would sell me on it.




EDIT: Here is one with the camo. It looks like crap but I stand corrected.
