B-17G Flying Fortress, 447th Bombardment Group, RAF Rattlesden, England

Few days ago I started next aircraft, Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress from GPM. Markings of the 447th Bombardment Group while in RAF Rattlesden, England. Scale 1/33.

Yes, it is 'A Bit O' Lace' but the serial is different. Maybe Don can say something more about my plane. Were there two examples of 'A Bit O' Lace' ?

Some more progress here.

Looking great Zenon. It is 42-97976- the '4' wasn't used (I don't know why) when they painted the serial number on the plane.
How many of us had they're first exposure to 'A Bit 'O' Lace' with the old Airfix 1/72 kit?

Here's the continuation of my work.
Model is really nicely designed although it has some very little inaccuracies(which model doesn't have them?)... B-17 by GPM is certainly not for beginners.

I built the FlyModel version, which is basically the same kit.
Very nice kit. But it show its age. And the inaccuracies are more than "little". Still good looking once finished.

Strange, I thought the GPM model had silver skins, not grey.
