Lots of videos of the Memphis Belle on the Air Force museum web site and Facebook during the restoration . Take a look if you need reference info

As a volunteer there, it will be a huge event the weekend of May 17th . I will wait a week or so after to get close.

MichaelS was asking about the progress of an upcoming kit of the Boeing Model 299 and Y1B-17 that I am working on. Here is a photo of a fuselage test build. I wish I had more time to get these kits done quicker. I’m still working on the Memphis Belle. I've attached a photo of a fuselage test build. This has proven to be one of the most difficult kits I have done. It is such an iconic aircraft with a very distinctive look. I want to make sure I get it right.

Ohh! Ohh! Mr. Kottah! Please pick me! I want one so bad! Can't wait to fly my 299 down to Brazil and see my friend Pericles. (The first -17's did a trip down to S. America back in like '38).
