Postage Stamp B17E My Gal Sal Model Plane

The B-17 Flying Fortress was a four-engine heavy bomber developed by Boeing for the United States Army Air Corps. It was a high-flying, long-range bomber, heavily used in World War II for daylight precision bombing of strategic military targets. It was highly effective and reliable, and developed a reputation of being able to return to its home base despite extensive battle damage.

My Gal Sal was one of the 3 B-17's that was forced to land on the Greenland icecap due to inclement weather on June 27, 1942. The crew was rescued and the aircraft abandoned until a 1964 overflight discovered the aircraft to be largely intact. It was recovered in 1995 and restored to a static configuration. It is now displayed in our very own National World War II Museum here in New Orleans Louisiana.

  • Scale: 1:155

    Disappointed

    I would not have expected WW2 item to be produced in China! After all the original was procuced by the innovative US war production.
    Also the pegs of the support do not match the holes provided. The smaller peg broke off after several efforts.

    Not together

    The stand would not fit into the body. One of the rear wings feel off and would not stay level when reinserted.

    *Thank you for the feedback, George. We will be reaching out directly to fix this manufacturing defect for you.
