B-17 Flying Fortress
About this creation












Hey! I never builded any World War 2 stuff, Who would say a serious Moc. So, if you wanna see really good WW2, check out David, site. Well, this inpiration that came from nothing become the most famous bomber from US Air force on the WW2. The B-17 Flying Fortress. Not powerfull as the B-29, or nice as the B-24, It still have his part in history
In response for the Army's request for a large, multiengine bomber, the B-17 (Model 299) prototype, financed entirely by Boeing, went from design board to flight test in less than 12 months.

The B-17 was a low-wing monoplane that combined aerodynamic features of the XB-15 giant bomber, still in the design stage, and the Model 247 transport. The B-17 was the first Boeing military aircraft with a flight deck instead of an open cockpit and was armed with bombs and five .30-caliber machine guns mounted in clear "blisters."

The first B-17s saw combat in 1941, when the British Royal Air Force took delivery of several B-17s for high-altitude missions. As World War II intensified, the bombers needed additional armament and armor.

Very nice, but looks a little too blocky though. Overall it's a very good creation.

I agree with Thomas that this doesn't work for me, but as I view myself as a critic, I am rating this on based public appeal.

Hi Bruno....this is a good start but there is alot that could be improved....the wings are a little too short and so is the fuselage....the taile fin is too small and i dont really like the landing gear.....but aside from the negatives this isnt that bad of a moc considering how hard the b-17 is too build.....great job!........also im not sure witch aircraft i will be building next,i thought of maybe doing a b-17...or maybe an A4 Skyhawk....or maybe even some ww2 german fighter or bomber like an bf110....but anyway great moc------David

So awesome! It looks very much like the real one. Though the wings should be longer, bigger, and thicker. 5 smileys to you!

I'm sorry, I realize you said this wasn't serious, but it really doesn't work for me. I'm not spamming, it just doesn't work for me(just my opinion) However your corsair II I find quite nice.
