This particular B-17 is probably my favorite... I really like the bare metal finish. Too bad they put an OD rudder on it...


Here's some color shots of this ship.

Those are amazing color photos of the prototype "E" model. Note that there are no guns installed. Yep, that natural metal finish with the old style star markings make for a really pretty picture. If memory serves me correctly, there were only about 500 B-17E's built out of over 12,000 total B-17 production run. She was the first truly combat ready Flying Fort. thumbsup.gif
