This B-17G Flying Fortress Model, Sentimental Journey, airplane is a replica scale model of the original aircraft manufactured by Douglas. The B-17G bomber aircraft saw little action as it was produced in late 1944. It was assigned to the Pacific Theater, and stored in Japan for a couple of years. It is now flown by the Commemorative Air Force at air sows around the county, and can be seen at the museum in Mesa, Arizona.
The B-17G Sentimental Journey model aircraft is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that 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. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
