USAAF 303rd BG, 358th BS, Sky Wolf , 1944

1:144 Scale   Length   Width
Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress   6.25"   8.75"

This B-17F-25 bears the name "Sky Wolf", and carries markings of the 358th Bombardment Squadron Heavy (part of the 303rd Bomb Group), a USAF unit that flew over Germany in 1944 and 1945. The bomber's markings are accurately and expertly rendered and defined, while die cast metal lends strength and realistic weight to this model. Detail is full, allowing the landing gear to be displayed lowered or in flying mode. The numerous machine gun turrets are delicately rendered, ready to instantly fire upon any tango fighters! This fine model is an accurate representation of the world's first mass-produced four-engine bomber.

Please note: Unlike other models in the Dragon Warbirds 1:144 series, this model is made from a combination of diecast metal and plastic components.

Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress

Designed to meet a US Army Air Corps requirement for a multi-engined bomber to replace the B-10, the B-17 first flew on July 18, 1935. Best known for its role in the US Army Air Forces' daylight strategic bombing campaign during World War II, the B-17 could fly high and had a long range, and was capable of defending itself from enemy fighters. It was also tough, withstanding extensive battle damage, and was capable of carrying a 6,000 lb bombload. The B-17 became one of the symbols of Allied air power, equipping 32 overseas combat groups and dropping a total of 580,631 metric tons of bombs on European targets.
