    B-17s in the RAF ? I didn't know that. I thought they were exclusive to the USAAF.

    We learn new things every days...

    yeah i already found the model pics, thanks though................

    oh yeah, we bought 20 B-17Cs and re-named them Fortress Is. 90 Squadron were the only unit in the RAF to use them but were the first to use the fortress in anger, we bought them really just to try out the idea of high level bombing, however there were lots of problems and even people dying on flights due to the altitude, as such bomber command didn't buy anymore and gave up the idea of high level bombing, which is one of the reasons most british bombers had a low ceiling.....................

    Hmmm... That reminds me the post I made a while back...

    "11. A number of air crewman died of farts (ascending to 20,000 ft. in an unpressurized aircraft causes intestinal gas to expand 300%)."

    Anyway, thanks for the information. :D

    Computer Aided Design :D I modified it slightly though to "Computer Aided Designer" :D

    Or if you wanna look at it in a totally different way, a stereotypical British person :D

    Making a 3D model is quite easy. I posted in an other thread a picture of a B-25 I made. It's not a scaled model, but quite lifelike.

    (Re-posting the pic here.)
