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).

Helping out

Just a quick note here. I just received the two Fortress models that Mr. Dell is offering for a donation towards helping out the kitties. Needless to say they are beautifully done and worth much more than the donation he asks. If you have not already done so, pleas consider donating. The models alone are worth the price.
