He graduated from another model, this time – this is the famous Memphis Belle, B-17, one of the first to perform a full round (25 sorties) in Europe. But along with the main character of the same name the film :).

Corrections in the model airplane from “Academy”

Going to model complicated – the fuselage is twisted, the gap between him and the wings stabilizers are huge, constantly I broke off some small change, such as antennas or machine guns.

Because of improvements – a little added cockpit (as it turned out – you can not do this, in the final model, these improvements are not visible), refined engines, landing gear added hydraulics, trunks of machine guns made more like the real Drill casings themselves trunks, dashed klёpku . Stained paint Vallejo Akane, toning and weathering – oil paints and MiG-native-pigments.
