1:144 Altaya Boeing B-17C diecast metal model plane MIB:
$30

8 1/2 in. wing span (1:144th scale) Boeing B-17 C metal Die cast airplane w/stand, United States Army Air Corps (USSAC) 14th Bombardment Group, 1940, during World War II, MIB (Mint In Blistercard).

This is the only early model diecast B-17 on the market!

The US Army Air Corps ordered 38 improved B-17Bs as B-17C in 1940. The B-17C changed from 1,000-hp to 1,200-hp Wright R-1820-65 radial engines. Flat sliding gun panels were installed instead of waist gun blisters, providing greater crew safety and cleaner design. The ventral gun blister was replaced by a "bathtub" turret also.

Twenty B-17Cs were transferred to the RAF (Fortress I), which used them during the early stages of World War II. The remaining 18 C models were modified to the D model configuration and became second line RB-17Ds late in their service lives.

Altaya, of France, have recaptured this immortal plane even down to the official markings. A copy of the French magazine released with this model is included.

A really nice and unique bomber model.

The landing gear is installed to display the model "on the ground" or to be displayed "in flight", with the landing gear extended, on the handsome plastic display stand that is included. The plastic propellers turn freely over metal shafts and the wheels do not turn on this die-cast aircraft. The model has a low metal content, only the top fuselage component is made of metal.

This is not a toy, it is a wonderful Collector's model.
