Boeing B17G Flying Fortress 1/28 Scale Balsa Model

SKU: GUI2002
This is the B-17G Flying Fortress US Air Foce WWII Bomber from the Giant Scale WWII Series by Guillows. Suitable for Ages 14 & Older. The B-17 lived up to its �flying fortress nickname during World War 2 when it penetrated deep into the Third Reich to blast German war production facilities. Bristling with machine guns, the �G version of the B-17 was a formidable opponent for enemy fighters being able to absorb extensive battle damage and still survive to deliver its bomb cargo on designated targets. Flown by the Eighth Air Force, the B-17G proved the feasibility of strategic daytime bombing at a time when the concept was questioned because of losses suffered from enemy defenses during the early war years. The superior combat record of the B-17 won it a deserved reputation as one of aviation's most successful bomber designs.
