Model Airplanes – This B-17G Flying Fortress Model Airplane is a scale model of the original Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress Thunderbird aircraft. The B-17 Model Airplane is crafted from wood and is an impressive aviation gift. Our B-17G Thunderbird model aircraft arrives fully assembled and includes a display stand.
The Thunderbird aircraft is one of the last few flyable B-17s. It was a demonstration airplane at the close of WW II and can be seen at the Lone Star Flight Museum. B-17s were developed during the 1930s for the U.S. Army Air Corp. This 4-engine heavy bomber had a top speed of 287 mph, and the B-17s were retired in 1968.
This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
