This 1/144 scale model possesses an excellent level of detail, and it has the natural metal finish found on B-17G aircraft. The precisely registered markings depict those of the 364th Bombardment Squadron, one of four squadrons of the 305th Bomb Group based in England that conducted bombing missions against Germany. This model represents "Flak Eater", an aircraft that first saw service on 17 April 1944 and survived the war. The distinctive 305th BG "triangle G" insignia is a feature of this aircraft, as is the bright green horizontal band across the tail that was introduced in August 1944. The nose art includes a shark's mouth, which lends a mean and aggressive look to this model.
