Thus, this set will accurately depict Cheyenne-tailed B-17 G’s and PB-1W sub hunting aircraft.

Comes complete with 2 PE metal heat shields/deflectors/shrouds for ultimate realism!

NEW RELEASE – AN/APS-20 Search Radar for Monogram/Revell B-17 G (PB-1W)

48141

If you are interested in modding your 1/48 B-17 Flying Fortress to be a Navy Sub-hunter Fortress (PB-1W) without buying the more expensive/extensive set, then look no further!

Affordably priced at only $22.95, this highly-accurate radar housing captures the complex geometry of the AN/APS radar.  This is probably the single hardest piece of the conversion should you attempt to scratch one on your own!

You will not find a more accurate depiction of the AN/APS-20, nor will you find one for a better price.

Some experience with Resin parts is recommended when installing this piece.  While every effort was made to contour  to the kit geometry using 3D scanning technology, sand/blending/filling will be necessary before priming and ultimately painting.

Designed to fit Monogram B-17 G. Other items to help convert are available separately*

  • Cheyenne Tail [48012]
  • Staggered Waist Gunner positions [48013]
  • Late model G Exhaust [48082]

More details, including PE, vacuform and possibly decals will be available at some point in the near future!

Purchase our 1/48 AN/APS-20 Radar HERE!

For the intermediate through advanced modeler.
