B-17C aircraft model
View Larger Image

 

Scalecraft Price:: $209.00
Item Number: 0694

B-17 Flying Fortress airplane model. The B-17 was designed in the mid 1930s to accomplish the Air Corps mission of long-range strategic bombing. The problem was that War Department and the Navy Department did not recognize that mission. Given the isolationist mood in the 1930s that precluded building offensive weapons, the B-17 had to be billed as a "defensive" weapon to defend the coastline.

This B-17 model is painted to reflect one that landed during the Pearl Harbor attack.

Mahogany Wood. Wingspan 21 inches, Length 14 inches.

A beautifully Crafted Early Model Boeing B-17
Ken Keller (Independence, MO, USA) 2/14/2021 2:41 PM
For years, I've been looking for a large scale Mahogany desktop model of an early production Boeing Flying Fortress. And now it's finally appeared from ScaleCraft in the form of 1940's model "D" variant (yes, it has cowl flaps so it's most certainly the "D" model). This is a beautifully crafted desktop model, painted in WWII Olive Drab with a light gray underside and early Army Air Force markings. It's just like the real bomber that appears throughout Howard Hawks and Warner Bros. WWII feature film, "Air Force." That bomber was named the "Mary Ann" and now you can have a "D" model of your very own to place on a table top or an office bookcase. Don't think about it, just buy it!
