"A great model"
build master
Great model of a great airplane. The details of this model are remarkable. Except for some of the clear pieces, very little trimming is needed. This is by far one of the best airplane models I have assembled.

"a major disapointment"
jctoymaker
I'm confused by the favorable reviews on this German Revell kit of the famous bomber. I think thyat there may have been some confusion with the G model of domestic Revell with this kit This kit is crude; perhaps I have a bit too much knowledge about the plane; I have over the last twenty-five years been able to walk(crawl) through B-17's though never able to afford a ride. I have, in the fifties built the 1/72nd scale kit twice, and found it even then a bad build. it was horrible in trying to fit the clear and solid plastic parts in the nose area together then; very bad fit, as bad as I have seen' Now to this kit; I haven't built it yet, and may not for some time to come. Upon pre-assembly t found the he same detail problems are present in this kit as when I was 10 in 1/72nd scale. What is just as bad, the inner detail is almost non existent. Poor cockpit and bombing areas of the ship, no detail at all in the bomb bay, bomb bay door and waste gunner areas. and poor presentation of the turret gunner areas. Lie I said, I may be spoiled by having such detailed knowledge of the aircraft, but Revell had a chance here at a great kit, given the scale The overall parts fit is lousy, and the colors called for in then instructions bear no semblance to any pictures of either the real thing, or its stand-in in the movie.it takes a lot for me not to want to build the kit I have paid for; perhaps later I will build it. But I'm not inclined to build it now. it wasn't expensive, but it wasn't cheap. I get aggravated by some of the older Revell kits, especially when they make nicely priced, first class kits like the B-25, Me410 and P-61 as examples. what a waste of money and time on kits like this.

"Great model but a lot of work"
Randy (Ohio, USA)
This is an old Revell kit which is a great subject but a lot of work. The molds are not good and the kit has a LOT of flash to be removed. The parts are sometimes hard to fit and the instructions a bit confusing in some areas. The plastic is so smooth paint is hard to stick to it. I love the way it turned out, but I would not recommend this kit for a beginner. I can only give it 4 stars under the circumstances.
