Detailed 1/72 scale assembly model kit of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, a World War II four-engine heavy bomber aircraft of the United States Army Air Corps. Introduced in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress became the backbone of the daylight precision strategic bombing campaign carried out against Germany during the Second World War. B-17 was long-range, high-altitude, and rugged aircraft. The Flying Fortress also carried a large payload and was quite capable of defending itself. Multiple machine gun positions on the B-17 were more than just moral support for its crew, as many enemy fighter aircrafts have been sent down in flames at the hands of B-17 gunners. By the end of World War II, B-17 had established itself as a superb weapons system, dropping more bombs than any other U. S. aircraft in World War II. This Revell Germany 1/72 scale assembly kit features : Detailed Cockpit. Moving turrets. Structured surfaces. Moving propellers. Separate aileron. Moving rudder. Moving bomb bay doors.
