Airfix 1:72 Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress - Model Kit

The definitive version of this classic USAAF heavy bomber, the Boeing B-17G
incorporated a host of improvements on the earlier models of the Flying
Fortress. With thirteen machine-guns and optimised defensive firing positions,
massed formations of B-17Gs would pound Axis targets on a daily basis, throwing
up as much lead at attacking fighters as they possibly could.

Arguably the most visible manifestation of American military might in the
Second World War was the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress four engine bomber.
Operating in massed formations, these distinctive aircraft were designed to
conduct daylight precision bombing missions against strategic enemy targets,
with the ultimate aim of literally pounding them into submission. As its name
suggests, the Flying Fortress was bristling with defensive armament and it was
intended that formations of B-17s could throw so much lead into the air that any
attacking enemy aircraft would either be shot down, or simply fly away from
their certain demise - although this thinking did not actually materialise in
combat, it did help to give the B-17 a fearsome reputation.
