"Revell 1/48 scale B-17G"
skippykeesler (Wood River Ill)
This has got to be one of the best B-17 models made.The interior detail is out standing, and with the available after market parts, he possibilities are almost endless. I just started mine, it was a Christmas Gift from my daughter. I will be lowering the flaps on mine and opening the bomb bay doors. As the bomb bay is detailed but alas the doors are modeled shut. The decal sheet is of good quality, but a little bland, you think with all the famous B-17s the decal sheet could of been a little more colorful.I have noticed that since Revell models have begun coming out of China, detail has not decreased, but the plastic seems softer and I have experienced fit problems, that I have not previously had. I just finished an F-106 and I have built several before, and this one did not go together as well, it required quite a bit of filler and sanding, the parts just did not want to fit together right. It still turned out to be a nice model. I am looking forward to The B-17 build,I also have a B-29, and a B-25 waiting to be built, and will be buying the B-1B this payday. I still remain a fan of Revell models.

"a lot of options"
wayne (Birmingham AL)
this kit comes with markings for 2 aircraft and has spars molded into the insides of the wings and fuselage so it can be built damaged. it also come with a diorama guide so that's pretty nice. it has complete compartments, bombardier, cockpit, radio and bomb bay even ammo boxes for the waist gunners. with all those sections you would think there would be fit issues. that's not the case. it goes together surprisingly well. its pretty big so I like to cut the Bombay doors out and build it bombing. it has a full Bombay, why hide it?

 
"Great model, has aged well"
july2044
This was the first of (then) Monogram's series of 1/48 WW-II multi-engine bomber series. It is molded in a dull aluminum, which works as the late-war no paint color scheme, as well as black sprues which make for a nice contrast and makes an attractive and reasonably accurate color scheme right out of the box. The clear window parts complete the kit, and they are molded thin enough that they do not give a clunky feel when the interior is studied. It has a very detailed interior, so good that there is also a version of this kit with a clear half-fuselage to fully display the interior. The plane is big enough that you will want to paint the interior -- the cockpit, the bombadier's nose position, the waist gunners' positions, and the turrets are all big enough to justify a lot of attention to the interior. It is also a decent deal price-wise -- it costs about as much as a typical 1/35 tank (which I build far more frequently) and you get a lot more for your money.

 
"f and g"
jctoymaker
A couple of years ago, when I could afford it I bought a few kits at once from here. I opened the B-17 kit first and was pretty disappointed at what I found; the detail wasn't up to snuff, and I didn't like how the kit layed out, so I put I aside and gave it a bad review, thinking the G kit looked better and thought of it for another day. So, a year or so later I pulled out the F and built it. it was a much better kit in assembly than I thought it would be; it fit together well and didn't need a whole tube of filler to finish off. Mea culpa for my review of the F Now for the G; I was very right about the detail between the two kits; the G model is one of the aircraft kits I have ever build. The detail I superb (it should have been, in that Monogram (this is Monograms kit, the F being Revell's going back to the Fifties. Monogram always had an edge on detail and fit (I go back to the Fifties), but I am really pleased with this build. The F isn't bad; the G is superior.
