"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?

"thrilled with this kit"
bkatz4
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.

 
"Huge plane!"
brady.stephenson
This was my first ever airplane kit, and its giant. I have it hanging in my room. It was a little bit of a hard build, but it still looks excellent. There is a nice interior, and a cool bomb cart that comes with it. The model does take a lot of paint to paint it up, but it looks nice afterward. The top and bottom ball turrets move, which is a cool addition. I would recommend this kit to anyone who is looking for a nice B-17.

 
"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.
