Primarily employed by the USAAF in the bombing campaign against German industrial and military targets, the B-17 also participated in the War in the Pacific where it conducted raids against Japanese shipping and airfields. From its pre-war inception, it was a potent, high-flying, long-range bomber that was able to defend itself, and return home despite extensive battle damage. It quickly took on mythic status. Hand finished tin replica with moving wheels and propellers, just like the toys of yore. This will really take you back.
