Academy's 1/72 scale
B-17F Flying Fortress

by Guilherme David Santos


Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress



Academy's 1/72 scale B-17F Flying Fortress is available online from Squadron

 

Description

 

Scale: 1/72
Name: B-17F “Memphis Belle”
Manufacturer: Academy
Modeler and photographer: Guilherme David Santos, from Rio de Janeiro - Brazil
Picture: I used a hair drier to move the props

After a base coat of primer acrylic, I used enamels and acrylic paints, with dry brush and wash techniques. The panel lines were darkened with a fine graphite pen and an oil paint mix. Black and brown chalks contributed to the exhaust stains and dust graphite provided the metallic look on the machine guns. The jeep (background) is a 1/72 Academy model.
