920 Piece Boeing model from Cobi.
The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is an American long-range heavy-bomber aircraft that was created by the American airline company Boeing Aeroplane Company. This is was one of the most popular bombers serving the Allies during World War II. Several hundred such machines took part in many actions, creating powerful so-called carpet raids. It was heavily armed with a deck weapon, which was the inspiration to call it the "Flying Fortress. " The Flying Fortress is the largest block model aircraft that COBI has issued so far. It has moving elements such as wheels, wing ailerons, onboard weapons and propellers. Under the deck there is an opening hatch from which the bombs included in the set fall out. The plane utilises pad-printing decorations so no stickers are used in this set. The prints reflect the painting of the aircraft from the war period. The cab has a specially prepared "Mascot of Memphis" print for the occasion. This is a very extensive model that will work equally well in any aviation or history enthusiast collection. Younger block fans can also play with it thanks to their durable and solid construction. Does not require any glue or paint.
