This bomber is...THE BOMB!
By Baron619 October 10, 2012
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.

Great model, has aged well
By july2044 January 15, 2013
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.

Favorite build yet!
By bsmith14843 November 20, 2012
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.

REvelle 1/48 scale B-17G
By skippykeesler March 14, 2013
This has got to be one of the best B-17 models made.The interior detail is out standing,and with the aviIIable after market parts,the possobilites 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 revelle models have begun coming out of China,detail has not decreased,but the plastic seems softer and I have expericenced 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 toghter as well,it required quite a bit of filler and sanding,the parts just did not want to fit toghter 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 Revelle models.
