    i finsh cut out all the man fishlegs part for now
    not start with the esembeling yet but for now its not looks that hard to design it

    Yaniv,

    Here is a file which contains the upgraded cockpit instruments. It was created for the 1:33 Fly Model B-17 but should fit with minor adjustments. It was created by Antonio Zani and was in the parts bin at one time (that's where I got it.)

    Great build so far by the way:grin:

    Looks good, my all around favourite WW2 bomber. Ever since 12 oclock high, movie and tv series. Good luck Yaniv, off to a great start!

    Good for you Yaniv!

    Veterans who flew this baby preferred it over the Liberator. B-17's are without a doubt my favorite bomber next to the Lancaster.

    I have a massive book with some great art work in it if you need ANY pics of things specific, let me know.
