This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

Operating from bases in England, Italy and North Africa, the B-17 participated in the around-the-clock bombing of the enemy occupied Europe; British bombing by night and the Americans by day. The B-17s carried out their missions from high altitude with a remarkable degree of precision, thanks to the Norden bombsight.

The "G" model was the most produced model (8,680), and although basically the same as the earlier "F" model, it had a chin turret with two fifty calibre machine guns and two cheek gun positions each mounting single fifty calibre machine guns. In all there were thirteen fifty calibre machine guns mounted in the "G" model B-17. Operating from bases in England, Italy and North Africa, the "Flying Fortress" participated in the around-the-clock bombing of enemy occupied Europe; the British bombing by night and the Americans by day. The B-17s carried out their missions from high altitude with a remarkable degree of precision, thanks to the Norden bomb sight. The B-17 had a reputation for being able to absorb horrendous punishment and keep flying; sometimes with severe gashes in their fuselages, or large sections of their wings and tails missing, and many times with only two or three of its engines operating.
