We could begin by discussing the fantastic record of the airplane that started life as a heavy bomber and ended the war classified as "light" by contrast with the bigger, more modern aircraft that had come to supplement-but never to replace it-
But we won't. We picked the B-17 as our scale project because it's a model builder's dream ship; sturdy, straight forward, handsome-and a born flyer that will ride in on one engine just like the big ones.
You can build her with fixed landing gear and two engines plus two dummies-or go all the way with four operating mills, retracting gear, operating flaps, navigation and landing lights, throttle control, and little men in the cockpit. Either way, she's a project that will keep you off the streets for quite a few evenings-but she's worth it. The ship is not recommended as your first scale project. But there are no unusual techniques, tools, or materials required.
