    Excellent service

    As always with Wonderland, very keen price, very swift dispatch and cheap shipping costs. But buyer beware - this kit is the more basic revell B-17F kit without the interior as found in the B-17G. Still a good kit and excellent value compared with my usual 1/35 armour kits.

    Not bad

    This is a big model with good exterior detail and lots of transfers, of the famous Memphis Belle - one of the first Flying Fortresses to complete 25 missions over Europe. There are alternative decals for "Meat Hound "based at Thurleigh. Although a good display model, there is a disappointing lack of interior detail - merely a rudimentary flight deck and bomb-aimer's position - there is no bomb bay. Racks are provided for 2 external bombs but these were rarely used. Revell/Monogram do a B17G with full interior detail which is much better. No pilot figures and the gun barrels lack detail. However, at current price it still represents excellent value.

    B-17 & Customer Service

    Excellent service from the get go. Well laid out site with great presentation of kits and products. Coupled with ease of navigation and ordering I will certainly be ordering again in the near future. As for the B-17 herself. A lot of kit for the price with huge scope for scratch building, something I really enjoy. Been a while since I made a kit and I could not have made a better choice to get back back into it again. Five stars all round.

    Excellent product, great price and fast delivery. Only issue is for a skill level 5 it's relatively easy to complete. For £23.69 including postage for a 1/48 scale B-17 it's great value for money.

    Large Kit- A great all rounder.

    The 1/48-17F Memphis Belle from Revell is a nice model for beginners who would like a to try something of this size but don't wont to pay over £30. The kit its self comes with clear instruction and a selection of decals to chose from but don't be put off with the green plastic the its moulded form. The Plastic holds the primer very well and the clear parts are easy to mask off. Tip: do not apply a heavy coat of paint to the bottom gun turret, it will rub off and effect the movement. The rear wheel struts can be a bit tricky, I would suggest letting them half set before joining the main body together which leaves a little room for movement. For the experience model builder I found this kit a jot to play with. Lighting up the cockpit and front gun section was hassle free but bare in mind there is no pint in lighting up the entire plane, there is no detail inside after the cockpit. Fitting four motors on for the props was straight forward too, there is just enough room with a little bit of engineering. The wheels can be modified as well in order for the to move without to much fuss.

    Nicely boxed reissue of the vintage Monogram Kit. Still a great purchase worth a look.
