Details 1/48th Scale Resin B-17G Interior Detail Kits
For Revell/Monogram B-17G
TD48508 B-17G Bombardier Section
TD48509 B-17G Cockpit set
TD48510 Waist Gunner Section
The 1/48th scale Revell/Monogram B-17G kit was considered pretty much
state of the art when it was initially released. But, that was in 1975
and you might say that the state of the art has changed some in those
last 30 years. What has not changed is the fact that the Revell/Monogram
B-17G kit is still the only 1/48th scale B-17 available. Now the interior
detailing is not bad even by today's standards, however it definitely
could be made a lot better. True Details has done just that with its three
new interior detailing sets.
TD48508 B-17G Bombardier Section:
set allows the modeler to totally redo the bombardier section of the B-17
kit including the interior fuselage ribbing. Only a few incidental parts
are retained from the original kit including the barrel sections of the
hand operated 50-cal. machine guns. Without a doubt the level of detail
of the aging Revell/Monogram kit will be very enhanced with the addition
of this True Details offering.
TD48509 B-17G Cockpit Set:
set, as with the True Details Bombard Section kit (TD48508), allows the
modeler to totally redo the cockpit of the B-17 kit. New highly details
side panels, bulkheads, oxygen tanks, seats and best of all a complete
pilot and co-pilot positions, including a new instrument panel and throttle
console come with this set. If you want to bring your 1/48th scale B-17G
into the 21st century this is a must have update kit.
TD48510 B-17G Waist Gunner Section:
with the two previous B-17G sets this one allows the modeler to totally
redo the waist gunner section of the kit, including the interior fuselage
ribbing. Like the bombardier kit the only original kit parts retained
are the barrel sections of the 50-cal. machine guns. New much better detailed
breeches are provided. As I stated previously the level of detail of the
aging Revell/Monogram kit will be definitely enhanced with the addition
of this True Details kit.
These three new True Details update kit for the aging Revell/Monogram
B-17G are very welcome additions. Kudos to True Details for breathing
new life into an old standby and the only game in town as far as a 1/48th
scale B-17 kit goes.
Many thanks to True Details for supplying these samples.
