    For anybody who loves 1/32 scale aircraft, this has got to be must have

    WingScale 1:32 B-17G Flying Fortress

    This sure does look to be a cracking model. Can't wait to see the reviews of it when it finally comes out next yr. Might be tempted myself. :lol::lol::lol:

    Wow! That is amazing. Sounds like a good next super-detailing project for Wayne!

    Just thinks about how much glue you would need to put that thing together, not to mention paint.... :shock::lol:

    Yeah,:lol: you'd have to have a 1/2 gallon of aluminum metalizer to cover the monster. Then all you'd have to do would be to polish it.

    Nice details, but is it just me or does the fuselage look a bit too wide at the back to any of you?

    Very impressive. it did look a bit wide to me, but it might be camera lens distortion. Slightly restricted to choice with the 'Cheyenne' rear gun position, but I'd love to have the room to do one .... and the overdraft to cover it !

    I was rather impressed with the tight fit of the kit. That looks like a scratch build dream.

    With a plane that big you could add little motors and power pack for the engines along with perhaps fiber optics for lights. :)

    Very nice, looks pretty close to the 1/48 B-29 I'm still fooling with. soon as I get the wings on I'll post a pic with me holding it. I love the detail possible with the bigger kits

    I'd like to see a flight of those hanging from the ceiling, with a few escorts mixed in.

    Dr.W, I like that idea, if I can't find a place for the B-29 I was going to hang it so i could easily add some 1/48 fighters, P-51 and maybe a p-38
