1/72 2106 Academy Boeing B-17B Flying Fortress
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
From 1991. Beautiful and highly detailed model of the early Fortress. Molded with all fine recessed panel lines. Features excellent cockpit detail, rotating props and wheels, bomb bay detail and full bomb load and optional position doors. The kit has never been assembled, but the prop hubs have been neatly painted silver. There is no other painting. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete and includes factory sealed clear parts, factory sealed decals and instructions. Dusty Rhodes was doing box art research and discovered that the painting for this kit represents the Good Will flight from Langley to Rio de Janeiro in November of 1938. The future SAC leader, Curtis LeMay, was on this flight as the lead navigator as a lowly First Lieutenant.
