Nice work! The art of kitbashing at its finest.
I built that B-26 kit a long time ago. Very nice!

Thanks.  Getting back to build after summer of 1/1 car work.
Cleaned up cluttered model room enough to resume building.  Doing shortening surgery on engine nacelles right now.

Took B-26 cowlings off to remove cowling ring of R1820s.  Engines were too far forward and match to engine mounts is better.  Need putty to smooth it out.  Cut off cowling ring is in front of wing.

It's great to see more progress on your excellent B-17M project, Bill!

I like your mods to the engine nacelles. Shortening them was a great call and makes the new engines and props look like they belong there.

Great stuff and I look forward to your next update!

William Edward Boeing would have been very pleased with your reworking of the B-17  Bill.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
