    Has anyone seen or done a model of the Boeing Model 299 or YB-17 in 1/48 scale? It seems that replication of of the nose and gun blisters for this aircraft are non-existent.

    Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    Hi,
    I'm afraid,none of model makers offers the B-17 variant.There is possibility that there are conversation kits for YB-17 or model 299 available but I haven't heard about them so far.Of course you can make many of these elements yourself ( in 1:48 scale it should be quite easy) but it depends on you only.
    There some links.
