Breathtaking is impossibly too small a word here so is talented; viewing your photos must grovel in abject shame from way afar in your presence. Being a mere mortal I must be content building other folk's plastic & resin creations, you sir walk with the Scratchbuilding Gods.

Await seeing the Radio Cabin section; do expect my long late uncle who'd inhabited it whilst serving in the 568th Squadron, 390th Bomb Group aboard Serials 42-102440 & 42-31114 to appear, gotta ask him how my Mom, his sister, is doing in Heaven right now.

That is amazing!! The attention to detail is outstanding. I really love the plumbing and the wood doors.

What did you use for the exterior skin? How did you make the rivets?

Wow!  10 years ago, I took a flight in the "Liberty Belle" B17 and I sat in the radio room looking forward over the bomb bay and into the cockpit.  The photos of the inside of your model look like the real thing!  Congratulations!!!

Computer, did we bring batteries?.....Computer?
