  1. Perhaps a link to that build?
  2. Ok so, the easiest way to spot the early G model would be to look at the waist guns. If the windows are not staggered and straight across from each other. And those same windows should generally be 3 separate windows instead of a single panel window. After that look at the tail guns. If it has the pumpkin tail it’s likely a later G. You want to look for the stinger tail like the E and F. Don’t overthink this, it’s really not that complicated. There are plenty of decal options out there. Google, eBay, and all the other online hobby stores will show a lot of options. Just use what I’ve already said to spot the ones you that are correct for the kit. There are tons of decal options out there too many to list. And yes, they can be either painted or bare metal, just like the kit decals are.
  3. Hopefully I’ll have one waiting for me Christmas morning.
  4. And I’m not looking at the angle of where it’s mounted to centerline of the wing because that pic is a bad angle to judge that from
  5. Ok, so looking at those engines, I can’t tell if they are upside or not. Honestly they don’t look right when compared to the real thing. I don’t have a small enough picture of one to post. But to me the kit engines look like generic radial engines instead of wright cyclone radials.
  6. Glad I still have a bunch with a good amount of spare bits and pieces.
  7. Are those engines upside down?
  8. If anyone finds a pre order, post a link.
  9. Oh my god. Never thought I’d see this day. I don’t see where it says series but if HK’s history follows on this we’ll have a few more kits coming in the future.
  10. Most if it won’t fit as the G is not the F. Top turret, waist windows are completely different. Cockpit glass should in theory work, but I’ve never used masks so I don’t know. But the cockpit is the easiest to mask with tamiya tape. I’d personally save the money and just use tamiya tape for the whole kit.
  11. 😪 all these new tooled kits being released and still no new B-17.....
  12. And the instructions for the visible kit make no mention of the Cheyenne turret even though the parts for it are in the box. If I remember right, it 2 or 3mm you have to cut off to fit the pumpkin tail.
  13. I assume you mean the 1/48 pro modeler B-17G kit, if so there is no need to cut the fuselage halves for the Cheyenne turret.
  14. I can’t help you on a kit selection as I only build in 48th scale but I do know that kits world makes a decal sheet for movie belle along with a few other cast mates from that movie. 99% sure it’s available in 72 scale and available on a few on line retailers as well as eBay.
