"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.

"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.

 
"Revell 1/48 scale B-17G"
skippykeesler (Worden 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.

 
"This bomber is...THE BOMB!"
Baron619
This bomber is big. As with most big models this one is done very well with every detail painstakingly reproduced. From the bomb sight to the moveable ball turret, the details are amazing. In the bomber's compartment there is a table with wood grain details. There are bullets in belts around the ball turret. These little extra details may go unnoticed by some but the fact that they went through the trouble to include them says a lot about the manufacturer. As with most models there is good and bad, but in the case of this B-17 the bad isn't really that bad. The only complaint I have is with how the ball turret just barely hangs in its two prong housing. But other than that this kit is awesome and this bomber gets 5 stars for being the BOMB.
