Very smart idea to build the model in stages, it would be very difficult to handle otherwise considering its size. I bought it a few years ago as well and got a bit lost in adding all kinds of details and modifications in the cockpit, navigator/bomb aimer and radio compartments as the kits' own internal design is pretty basic. Then I started to build the wing structure and only then realized its size.... And ever since it's patiently waiting for revival. You're doing an excellent job Zenon!

Olo, engines are like in the instruction. They're OK.


Here's the current status of my work on B-17.
You can see some of my methods and how I use black threads(for wheels) and old plastic bottles(for all that glazing).

It's looking very beautiful! Nice to see the entire fuselage, wing, and tail assembly all together.

Thanks for sharing your innovative techniques for emulating tire treads and for transforming soda bottles into Perspex canopy, turret, and blister parts.

Don
