I agree, that is pretty impressive. How about a picture of the bomb bay?

Looks nicer than that Freewing B17 that is available at HK...

Optically the best foam Fortress out there!

HLC, any release date and price?
Do you ship to Germany, too?

Cheers,
Bernhard

HLC will they change the top turret, rear gunner window as well as the waist gunners windows ? They just look very very wrong to me.

Any news on the Starmax?


Hello there,

this B-17 was shown at the Shanghai model exhibition, AFAIK. Any ideas when it will actually be delivered in Europe or the US? And what about paint schemes - in Shanghai, there also was a brownish scheme?

Thank you,
Henrik

This B-17 is very very wrong and totally off. No matter if its 2000mm.

It looks NOTHING like a B-17, period.

I wont buy it, rather have the HK one which has better lines.

Here is what a B-17G should look like :

Compare this to what you see in the photos posted of the model and you immediately will see what I am on about.

Looks like a B-17 to my 50 year old eyes. Close enough for government work anyhow. I am considering buying one, and would gladly wait to purchase this one, if it ever becomes available in the U.S.

Its got a cheyenne tail turret, not my favorite by far. And its cowlings don't have fake engine cylinders, big effin deal. As long as it looks like one in the air, and flies nicely, I'll be a happy camper. If I wanted perfection, I would build the thing myself.

2000mm is 77 inches, which is not the biggest. I thought there was one out there at 81 inches.
