- HISTORY ASPECTS:
- The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft that played a critical role in the Allied bombing campaign during World War II. One of the most famous B-17s was ‘Miss Conduct’, a B-17G model that served with the 481st Bomb Squadron, 100th Bomb Group, Eighth Air Force.
- ‘Miss Conduct’ flew over 50 combat missions during the war, including missions over Germany, Austria, and Italy. The crew of ‘Miss Conduct’ was credited with the destruction of several enemy aircraft and numerous ground targets.
- After the war, ‘Miss Conduct’ was sent to the United States for scrapping, but was instead sold to a private individual. It eventually ended up in the hands of the Collings Foundation, a non-profit organization that operates a fleet of vintage aircraft for public display and education.
- Today, the B-17G ‘Miss Conduct’ is a popular subject for diecast enthusiasts. A 1:72 scale model of this iconic aircraft captures the rugged beauty and distinctive features of the Flying Fortress, from its bristling array of machine guns to its distinctive nose art.
- If you’re looking for a classic addition to your model aircraft collection, the B-17G ‘Miss Conduct’ is a must-have. Whether you’re a history buff, an aviation enthusiast, or just love the look of this iconic aircraft, this scale model is sure to impress.
