Product description

Take to the skies with the Airfix Eighth Air Force Boeing B-17G and Bomber Resupply Model Kit.

The United States Army Air Force (USAAF) Eighth Air Force was created during World War II to support the Allied invasion of German occupied Europe by flying daytime strategic bombing missions from bases in Eastern England. By late 1944, every day hundreds of Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and Consolidated B-24 Liberator bombers would head over German-held territory, braving German fighters and the weather to deliver bombs onto targets.

Damage to returning aircraft was commonplace which often led to the cannibalisation of badly damaged airframes to keep others flying. The silver port wing on the B-17G depicted in this kit is an example of this practice and it is a testament to the skill and hard work of the ground crews that so many aircraft were kept serviceable in this way.

Along with the aircraft, the kit also includes an Autocar U-7144-T 4X4 tractor unit and F-1 fuel trailer, Chevrolet M6 bomb service truck and M5 bomb trailer and Cushman Model 39 Package Car.

This kit will be the perfect addition to any model-maker's collection.
