"Favorite build yet!"
bsmith14843
Honestly this has been the most fun build I've ever done, even though I've only done a few. To start off with this plane is massive at least in my perspective. Windows fit in perfect, joints fit perfect. Everything fit perfect. You just have to take your time and really read your instructions if you don't you're screwed before you even open the box.

"Great Kit"
illiniteach29
Overall, this was a great kit. Very detailed interior allows for great cutaway models. Instructions were very clear, and made such a big build easy. There were some problems with fit, particularly around the windows, and the ball turret has a tendency to fall out if not reinforced. Having crew members and bomb cart added to the ability to make a good diorama scene if that is desired.

 
"Very fun build of a great aircraft"
travis.getz
The Revell kit of this aircraft is pretty much the 'bar' that other B-17 models in this scale are measured against. The parts have a good fit and detail is pretty nice. A great value for the price. Consider using some of the 'rub and buff' silver products for the body sheen. You can also find many aftermarket decals available for this model, should you want to create a specific aircraft.

 
"Fantastic Fortress"

I have built this kit about two or three times in the past and it’s absolutely one of my favorites. Without doing any after-market bashing, this kit is still a great addition to any modeler’s collection. As stated in other reviews the plastic is molded in dull aluminum, the instructions are pretty clear, although I chose to go in a different order a couple of times, and the overall fit is good. More experienced modelers will probably want to eliminate the gaps where the wings connect to the fuselage. Assembly went without a hitch but…be prepared for a tricky effort connecting the fuselage halves together with all the interior parts. I highly encourage dry-fitting two or three times as I had some small issues with the radio room which is also connected to the belly turret. I did not remember the locking tabs for the wings but this is a great feature for support the weight. My only other issue was putting the windows in. I have used regular glue but decided to try Elmer’s white glue to avoid any marring of the clear plastic. Well, Elmer’s did okay but didn’t secure one of the windows (one the left side of the fuselage near the front of the aircraft) and it came out after everything was put together. This was quite a problem to fix so…make sure the windows are secure. The decals are okay, but the selection HobbyLinc has will allow you to model many different G model aircraft used during the war. Even though you might not be able to see your work (I didn’t glue the windscreen or radio operators window in which allows me to show the detail and painting) the finished product is superb. I highly encourage you to build this kit, at almost any level of modeling skill, and you will be impressed. Have fun!!!
