    These are great airplanes. The builders are to be commended on their workmanship. What a great B-17 that the builder is able to sit in the17. A long time ago I had a set of drawings in a magazine showing similar setup for a B-24. Thought about it but didn’t.. Congratulations to the builder. Also to all the other builders of the great models.
