My goodness you're doing some very interesting things I'm not sure I'd have either the confidence or skill to pull off!

I especially like those details on the tail gun!

Already looking forward to more,

Pesky fuselage problems with Airfix-MPC kit.  Particularly MPC.  Started over with Airfix fuselage.  Is an improvement.  That plus 1/1 car work, house repairs delayed build.
So here we are with B-17G and B-17M WIP nose to nose showing wing size difference.  B-17G has 104' wingspan B-17M has 117'.

I like how well the new wings fit and makes me think of a high-altitude bird.

Definitely one to watch!

Finally some progress.  B-17M with 1970s built B-17G.  More to do.

Wow that's coming along great Bill!

I really like those engines topped off with the four-bladed props! Looks very powerful for this bird!
