eBay Auction Description:

This auction is for a BRAND NEW VINTAGE WWII REPRODUCTION 1/62 SCALE U.S. ARMY AIR FORCES BOEING B-17G "THUNDERBIRD" FLYING FORTRESS SOLID WOOD DESK TOP DISPLAY MODEL AIRPLANE WITH WOOD & METAL STAND. COMES IN IT'S ORIGINAL FOAM PADDED FACTORY SEALED BOX.

The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed in the 1930s for the then United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). Competing against Douglas and Martin for a contract to build 200 bombers, the Boeing entry outperformed both competitors and more than met the Air Corps' expectations. Although Boeing lost the contract because the prototype crashed, the Air Corps was so impressed with Boeing's design that they ordered 13 more B-17s for further evaluation. From its introduction in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress evolved through numerous design advances.

Painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany wood by The Toys & Models Corporation's (TMC). Their skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail have hand-carved and hand-painted each model airplane, with great concern for exact accuracy. This 1/65-scale U.S. Army Air Forces Model – the definitive version of the Boeing B-17G Thunderbird Flying Fortress - makes a great gift for any pilot, aviation buff or history fan. The model airplane measures approximately 14.30" in length, has a 19.90" wingspan and includes a display stand with a mahogany base. The model airplane is brand new and will be shipped to you, in it's original foam padded factory box.

Important Information, Please Read Before Buying:

This model airplane will be "Drop Shipped" from my model distributor, located in New Jersey and model availability at the time of the purchase, may vary. Please be guided accordingly prior to buying and please feel free to ask any questions ahead of time to the seller. Thank you.

A Short History about the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress:

The B-17 was primarily employed by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in the daylight precision strategic bombing campaign of World War II against German industrial and military targets. The United States Eighth Air Force based at many airfields in southern England, such as Thorpe Abbotts airfield and the Fifteenth Air Force based in Italy - with many units stationed at the existing bases surrounding Foggia - complemented the RAF Bomber Command's nighttime area bombing in Operation Pointblank to help secure air superiority over the cities, factories and battlefields of Western Europe in preparation for Operation Overlord.[4] The B-17 also participated to a lesser extent in the War in the Pacific where it conducted raids against Japanese shipping and airfields.

From its pre-war inception, the USAAC (later USAAF) touted the aircraft as a strategic weapon; it was a potent, high-flying, long-range bomber that was able to defend itself, and to return home despite extensive battle damage. It quickly took on mythic proportions,and widely circulated stories and photos of B-17s surviving battle damage increased its iconic status. With a service ceiling greater than any of its Allied contemporaries, the B-17 established itself as an effective weapons system, dropping more bombs than any other U.S. aircraft in World War II. Of the 1.5 million metric tons of bombs dropped on Germany and its occupied territories by U.S. aircraft, 640,000 tons were dropped from B-17s.

As of September 2011, 13 airframes remain airworthy, with dozens more in storage or on static display.
