    My vision of a stripped to the bone B-17G as a Atomic bomber. I researched weight in loaded and empty forms...got rid of everything..turrets , guns,interior...then I modified the bomb bay to carry the A bomb from the B 29 kit, along with cuff-less props. All from monogram 1/48 scale kits. The belly turret was the worst to fill so it sorta sucks...I named it "Winged X" with just a spare decal.
