Default 1/32 B-17G

I got a Karma Bomb this past Friday - a person or persons unknown saw fit to bless upon me an HK Models 1/32 B-17G

Whoever you are....if you're reading this....THANK YOU!!!! I'm still working on tracking you down

Anyway - I LOVE THIS KIT.

There won't be much if any time-consuming scratchbuilding on this build, just adding detail parts and enjoying.

As usual for an epic kit like this, there are aftermarket goodies to make it even epic-er. My plans:

  • Eduard Brassin wheels are a given. Also, maybe superchargers.
  • Eduard Brassin engines....this will be about the most expensive add-on. On a plane like this, the engines are like eyes on a face - they *have* to be right, or it throws the rest off. The Brassin engines are jewels. Each engine comes with a full one-piece snap-on cowl, plus three-piece sectioned cowl that would look good near the plane when the cowlings are off. Also, they are purely stick-on items, so I can hold off on buying them as long as I want.
  • Eduard brass - I just want Big Ed Set 1 plus Exterior and Placards. Set 2 won't be necessary.
  • .50 cals - Eduard Brassin gun set for the breeches and mounts, plus Master brass barrels. The Eduard barrels are great, but the brass are better.

Two things I'd like to see: Vacuform nose cone, and a good resin Norden.


This will be an incredibly fun build.
