"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.

"Not a bad kit"
masterchief191
I have built many of these, this specific kit... I am not too much of a fan for this one, have been looking for other B-17 kits, i have done many of this kit due to options and cost. This kit is a great starter kit, its easy and the parts are not too difficult to place, but i believe it is not very detailed. I find it to be a cheaply made product, its a bit brittle and can fall apart easily. Overall, this is a good starter model for someone new or just getting into building bigger planes. If you're a more experienced builder i suggest getting a more detailed, stronger, and challenging kit.

 
"What an awesome kit. Still."

This is one of the many kits I built (and left behind) as a kid and have had the pleasure of rebuilding in retirement. Just throw it together and paint it and you would have an impressive model. However, taking the time to paint all the interior detail can yield a masterpiece. The kit decals are perfectly fine and the aftermarket decal selection is amazing. The crew would be a good addition.

 
"thrilled with this kit"

i built the revell 1/48 mitchell bomber to re-introduce myself to aircraft modelling, and loved it. that great experience led me to order this similar but larger bomber, and it also offered all the great details and quality parts i now remember from my earlier years of modelling. the bomb bay details would have been hidden by the molded shut doors, so i cut them open and installed them in the open position. i saw some aftermarket replacement parts available, but found that the kit's parts made for a nice display, and am quite happy with the results. parts fit on engine nacells was challenging, requiring some bodywork attention, but that's the stuff that i love. the fit was good enough that someone with less experience could still be proud of their efforts, even without bodywork. stretching your modelling skills keeps the interest high and makes me want that next kit all the more! i would recomend this kit to any level of modeller, confident they would be proud of the results, and admire the finished product as much as i do mine. terrific value.
