1:28 scale. Wingspan 45 3/4″. Giant scale Balsa wood model kit by Guillows. 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 aviations most successful bomber designs. The B-17G Flying Fortress was the most famous bomber during WWII. Guillow’s magnificent scale model of this aircraft is a replica of the B-17G mural on the wall at the Smithsonian Institution. The balsa scale model is designed for .049 U/C flight or as a Build ‘n Show display. Finely detailed plastic gun turrets and dummy engines, rugged landing gear and a sturdy wing/fuselage interlock. Build it with either movable or unmovable flying surfaces. For ages 14 and up.

1:28 scale. Wingspan 48 1/2″. Large scale Balsa wood model kit by Guillow’s. The B-24 Liberator was built in greater quantities than any other U.S. bomber of World War 2. The prototype model was produced by the Consolidated Aircraft Corp. with the first XB-24 taking to the air on Dec. 29, 1939. It featured the revolutionary Davis wing design that enabled the B-24 to carry the same payload as its rival the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress but at a much greater speed and range. Over 18,000 Liberators were built during the war. Of all the European operations in which B-24s were involved, the initial raid on the Ploesti oil refinery in southern Rumania on Aug. 1, 1943 was by far the most dramatic because it was heavily defended by anti-aircraft guns as well as squadrons of German Luftwaffe and Royal Rumanian Air Force Fighters. Of the 164 B-24s engaged, 53 were shot down or lost enroute, 23 were forced down and only 88 returned to base. ‘Jerk’s Natural’, the subject of this kit, was a Ploesti bomb group survivor. The kit contains parts and decals for a “J” model B-24. This is strictly a Build and Display kit-Not designed for flight. For ages 14 and up.
