Overview
 
The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber developed in the 1930s for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). Competing against Douglas and Martin for a contract to build 200 bombers, the Boeing entry outperformed both competitors and exceeded the air corps' performance specifications. Although Boeing lost the contract because the prototype crashed, the air corps ordered 13 more B-17s for further evaluation. Kit features engraved panel lines, fully appointed and detailed fuselage interior (cockpit, radio/navigation compartment, bombardier's station, waist, bomb bay with 4 bombs and optional bomb bay door), reinforcing central wing spars, detailed radial engines with optional cowling flaps, rotatable turrets, single piece propellers with spinners, separate trailing edge flaps, detailed wheel wells and optional undercarriage, transparent accents (cockpit canopy and turret glazing's, landing lights and cabin door).
