"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.

"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.

 
"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"
illiniteach29
Overall, this was a great kit. Very detailed interior allows for great cutaway models. Instructions were very clear, and made such a big build easy. There were some problems with fit, particularly around the windows, and the ball turret has a tendency to fall out if not reinforced. Having crew members and bomb cart added to the ability to make a good diorama scene if that is desired.
