for a B-17 I have seen both Don Smith designs Fly and American Eagle..I know the AMerican Eagle will build faster asit is a Fiberglass fuse foam core wings design... go to www.flyrcmodels.com for the B-17..I have seen and you have probably seen them fly in Monaville at Bomber Field in Sept... for other designers just post a search for kits and lots will come up...Good Luck..

If you are still looking for a B-17 I have a new set of plans available That are by far better than Don Smith's plans. Take a look at this post to see the detail and quality of my new plans.

If you are looking for a good kit, the Marakuta (as mentioned earlier) is a great kit. These kits where formerly imported by Royal. I have had a royal spitfire & 109. The wood in the kits is excellent, I really like the plans, they are drawn so you can build another one from scratch. Which is really good if you you have to repair a crack up.

I met up with mkramer here in Atlanta last night to see his plans, all I can say is WOW. Very detailed, perfectly exact, all CAD layout. I will be buying a set in the coming weeks.

Default B-17, B-29 plans and kits

I have posted both on my website, www.marcoplanes.com. They are large scale models. The drawings are full size. A short kit is available for each. Chris Marco
