Product Description

This Plastic Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress "Memphis Belle" Aircraft is a 1/72 Scale Ready to Assemble Plastic Model Kit from Academy. Suitable for Modelers Age 10 and Older.

The B-17 Flying Fortress "Memphis Belle" was the most famous bomber, because she was the first heavy bomber in Hitler's European war theater to complete 25 combat missions and keep her entire crew alive. The Memphis Belle was named for pilot Capt. Robert K. Morgan's wartime sweetheart, Ms. Margaret Polk. The preserved Memphis Belle remains on display at Mud Island in Memphis, Tennessee.

Beautiful Belle
By cclem8441 August 7, 2017
I have built this kit 3 times in my life. It always reminds me of time with my father, this was the first skill level 2 model I ever built, it was crushed by the family cat 8 months later. Its a great easy built. Great detail, easy to follow instruction and very descriptive, that should make this fun for anyone at the beginner level. Everything matches up beautifully and falls right together.
