We have embellished the artwork and smoothed the skin tones as the scale deserves.


This Kitsworld A5 decal sheet includes schemes for 2 Boeing B17s, an F and a G model of the USAAF Eighth Airforce.
"My Devotion", a B17F of 351st Bomb Group, 510 bomb Squadron, artwork painted by waist gunner seymour Ziegler taken from a "Yank" magazine article.
The other represents what is perhaps one of the best known B17 artworks ever produced - "A Bit-O-Lace". The reference for this artwork was supplied by the original artist, Milton Caniff, and was a character from his own comic strip 'Male Call', armourer Nicholas H Fingelly was the squadron artist who transfered the artwork to the bomber.

Info Contributor - Gerson Lopes

After return to the United States at Kingman, AZ. When the plane was on the island of Ie Shima (after the war ended), General Kenny, commander of the 5th Air Force, wanted to keep the plane and fly it back to the United States. The plane was equipped with "synthetic" rubber tires, which was a brand new deal back then, and the General wanted "real" rubber tires on the plane when he took it back to the States. So he literally "scoured" the pacific in order to find the real rubber tires, and had them flown in to Ie Shima and fitted onto the plane. After a thorough pre-flight, he took off in the plane for a check-out flight, wherein, all went well, and they were to return to the island and leave the next day. Upon landing, one of the damn rubber tires blew-out and the plane skidded off the runway and crashed!
