The very first heavy bomber for the WWII collection: here you go the majestic B-17
About this creation

Here we are: the mighty Flying Fortress itself … in bricks! This one took me a very long while to complete, but I’m really satisfied with the work at last! It has a load of bricks, 1478 pieces to be precise, but I believe it is in a full minifigure scale.
This is the B-17G which was named “The Flying Fortress”, and I certainly don’t need to explain why… This strategic heavy bomber was feared by the Axis for its precision and its massive load: with 13 12.7 mm machine guns all around its body and a capability up to 8.000 kgs of internal bombs it has been deployed by the USAAF to literally waste half of Europe, which skies were infested by the Luftwaffe fighters.

The model features a full interior, with every position of the real thing: from the bomber position, which is located in the nose, to the tail gunner position, therefore the minifig crew has 10 members, just like the real crew.
It features a full retractable landing gear mechanism, moving turrets (chin turret, cheek turrets, top turret, ball turret, waist turrets, tail turret), 6 heavy internal brick bombs, and of course an openable bomb bay. You can see the whole interior in the cutaway picture. It has a very detailed cockpit as well, which you can see in some of the pictures below.
