  1. Not been feeling well today. So just installed the rear gun position (which was finished earlier in the week), and the waist gun ammo boxes and feeds:
  2. So more chassis work on the 8 tonner. And this should be ready for paint soon. And I started on the front bogie too! So today's progress on the 8t. And I concentrated on the driver/crew compartment today: I'll be slapping some paint on it tomorrow.
  3. Ok so today's progress on "Miss Lace" The flight deck is done: And I've also been working on more of the radio room: More soon

  13. Looking good so far Oliver. Keep up the great work!
  14. Thanx Oliver. Yes the pdf was very helpful.
  15. Right this is this afternoon's progress. And I've repainted the bomb bay bulkheads, catwalk and racks corresponding to pictures: Now the flight deck, and navigator's bomb aimer's positions. Painted brown to represent the wood floors:
  16. Thanx Olivier that shows the racks to be Interior Green, most of the images I've seen they are Aluminium. I'm confused now lol.
  17. So progress on "Lace" continues. Does anyone know what kind of bombs these are? I'm guessing 500Ib and 250Ib. And would they have coloured stripes around the nose? I'm sure the fort could carry more than four bombs I'll have to hunt for those I didn't use from the previous build.
  18. This evening's work as the B-17 was drying. I've installed some bits for the sprocket wheels.
  19. So this is this afternoon's/evening work so far:

  21. Ok at the same time as building a B-17. I'm also building one of these. I built the Initial Production one late last year. So I grabbed this to sit alongside it.
  22. Here's my latest on the bench: It will be built OOB, and as the title suggests as "A Bit O' Lace". Which was my late Dad's all-time favourite B-17G.
