PKHK01F001 HK Models B-17G Flying Fortress Early Production

For a long long time, a new state of the art model kit of the B-17 Flying Fortress in 1/48th scale has been high on modellers’ wish lists. Only two manufacturers have produced 1/48 B-17s. Monogram in the US first produced the 1/48 B-17G in 1975, currently it’s not available. Revell in the US released a B-17F in 1978. With some updated parts along the way it’s still going more than forty years later.

So, enter Hong Kong Models with the brand new 1/48 B-17G, their first quarter scale kit. Only just announced, social media has gone wild with excitement! The new “Fort” will feature the same ease of assembly, fine surface and interior detail, clever engineering, great markings and fantastic box art as HKM’s larger 1/32 scale kits. With a wingspan of approx 66cm (26in) the 1/48 Fortress is a large model.
