B-17G rebuild Connie !

Recommended Posts

Amazing photos!

I'm wondering, on this shot:

img087.jpg

what is the object that is leaving a trail? Is it a "Komet" or something less esoteric ?

Smoke Marker bomb, to signal bomb release for following aircraft with Toggliers in place of Bombardiers.

All the best,

PB

I am able to start working on this model again for the display . I cut her right behind the the bomb bay and I got the nose section cleaned up so that I could mount it to a plaque I want to use so I can put it on the wall. I did not like the way it looked with just the wings removed so I made up the mounts and the support structure in the wing attachment point to try and make it look better . I found some pictures that show the area between the attachment points look like fabric so I added that as best I could .Let me know what you think I will post more pictures as I move FWD
