1/72 F213 Frog Boeing B-17E Flying Fortress - 'Suzy Q' 93rd BS 19th BG Pacific Early 1942 / 'Yankee Doodle' 97th BG 8th AF 1942
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc
Frog is well known for making realistic, detailed models at a time when most manufacturers were not making kits strictly to scale and embellishing kits with oversized rivets. Frog, on the other hand, strived for scale fidelity and almost never showed rivet detail. This B-17E is no exception and is a fine kit that would built to a realistic display model. Decals are included for two historical aircraft - Suzy-Q, a very early Pacific Theatre aircraft from 1942 flown by Captain Felix Hardison USAAC and Yankee Doodle, the ship that General Ira C. Eaker flew in as an observer during the 8th Air Forces first bombing mission against the railway marshalling yards at Sottenville, near Rouen France on August 17, 1942. The kit is well molded with fine raised panel lines and features a full crew, optional position landing gear and a large display stand, elevating tail guns, rotating and elevating top and belly turrets with the blocking panel for Suzy-Q, opening bomb bay doors and bomb load and more. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
