More Great April Releases from R2D – ones that you have been waiting for!

RESIN2Detail is proud to announce two eagerly awaited releases for the Monogram 1/48 B-17 G Flying Fortress Kit.

The venerable B-17 G kit released in the 1970s is still a rock-solid model, and very affordable and readily available online and elsewhere since its re-release — Although, some of the more visible areas need detailing. What’s more, the kit does not come with a means to model a late-model G featuring the Cheyenne Turret or Staggered Waist Gunner positions (outside of the long OOP Model Master edition released in the early 1990s). Both of these updates/conversions are critically important variants for the WWII aircraft modeler and Flying Fortress enthusiast.


Well, wait no longer – R2D has done it again with these two major releases! You will not be disappointed.

 

AC48012

B-17 G CHEYENNE TAIL Conversion Kit (for Monogram 1/48 G)

FullSizeRender (27)Have you been eager to convert your Flying Fortress into a late model Cheyenne-tailed version, but not taken the leap yet due to the lack of good aftermarket alternatives? If so, take a peek at R2D’s top-shelf offering heaped with loads of mouth-watering detail. The contours were precisely mapped to the actual model using 3D scanning technology.


The kit features a replacement tail, complete with clear resin canopy, and molded in sidewall and floor detail. But that is not all – you get replacement .50 Cal MGs with flash suppressors, “bicycle” seat & frame, “tripod” tubular mount, ammo belts, gun sight, heating tubes (yes – heating tubes), armored glass and realistic ammo boxes! It has to be seen to be believed!

Comes with detailed set of instructions.

AC48013

B-17 G STAGGERED WAIST GUNNER Conversion Kit (for Monogram 1/48 G)

FullSizeRender (11)Going hand-in-hand with the Cheyenne Turret conversion (AC48012) is this super-detailed way to accurize and stagger your late-model B-17 G waist gunner positions! Features integral clear fuselage sections for port and starboard sides, which have the clear Plexiglas gunner windows with openings for K-6 gun mounts (included).

As with the Cheyenne Conversion kit, this kit also features 2 full and highly-detailed M3 Browning Machine Guns along with Ammo Boxes & Belts! Position the guns to your liking by swiveling the mounts.

The interior walls of the replacement fuselage sections feature nice accurate and to-scale ribbing, mounts, hoses, etc. that will add realism to the finished product.

April 2016 Release

AC48014

R2D is excited to announce a major upgrade for the Monogram B-17 in April 2016!

Bomb bay detail on the Monogram B-17 kits is notoriously sparse, with no simple solution to add realistic detail, other than spend countless hours scratchbuilding to accommodate the inner profile’s  complex geometry.

Setting the bar for major upgrades, we’ve taken a novel approach – one normally seen only with conversions… Instead of requiring the modeler to bend photo-etch or shave thickness from the inner kit walls, we completely cut out about 56mm of the middle fuselage area and replace it with this Ultra-detailed sub-assembly!  Simply cut along kit panel lines with your dremel or X-acto saw/blade and insert a pre-assembled mid-section.

Designed to fit to the B-17 G kit by Monogram, though could also be made to work with the B-17 F with a little finagling.  State of the art 3D scanning technology was utilized to ensure an accurate fit.

Stay posted for more information, including product photos, as this nears production next month and for other exciting product announcements!!
