"Bet B-17 Ever in this scale"
modelplanemaker
Way back in 1975 I was 14 when this kit came out. I got it for Christmas that year but dummy me ruined it before it was even finished. So over the years after that I must have built at least 25 to 30 kits of this. Each one I did was different but easy to build. Yes now you can add extra detail items to this kit to really bring this kit to life. I am planning real soon to go the extra task to add all these details in my next B-17G. By the time I did all this it would be just the cost of the 1/32 HK kit without the extra detail. I say go slow and enjoy this beautiful model of the famous Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress. It is really worth your time to build one.

"Fantastic Fortress"
kajoe55 (Oklahoma)
I have built this kit about two or three times in the past and it’s absolutely one of my favorites. Without doing any after-market bashing, this kit is still a great addition to any modeler’s collection. As stated in other reviews the plastic is molded in dull aluminum, the instructions are pretty clear, although I chose to go in a different order a couple of times, and the overall fit is good. More experienced modelers will probably want to eliminate the gaps where the wings connect to the fuselage. Assembly went without a hitch but…be prepared for a tricky effort connecting the fuselage halves together with all the interior parts. I highly encourage dry-fitting two or three times as I had some small issues with the radio room which is also connected to the belly turret. I did not remember the locking tabs for the wings but this is a great feature for support the weight. My only other issue was putting the windows in. I have used regular glue but decided to try Elmer’s white glue to avoid any marring of the clear plastic. Well, Elmer’s did okay but didn’t secure one of the windows (one the left side of the fuselage near the front of the aircraft) and it came out after everything was put together. This was quite a problem to fix so…make sure the windows are secure. The decals are okay, but the selection HobbyLinc has will allow you to model many different G model aircraft used during the war. Even though you might not be able to see your work (I didn’t glue the windscreen or radio operators window in which allows me to show the detail and painting) the finished product is superb. I highly encourage you to build this kit, at almost any level of modeling skill, and you will be impressed. Have fun!!!

 
"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.

 
"Great kit of an iconic bomber in 1/48 scale"
dcdcdcx3
I highly recommend this kit for anyone who wants to build a large bomber in 1/48 scale. The interior is highly detailed and comes together nicely. I cut my bomb bay doors out and glued then in the open position so you can see the payload from the exterior. I'm waiting for Revell-Monogram to reissue the rest of their large scale bombers so I can purchase them (B-52, B-36, B-29 and B-24).
