Kwik-Fli, Slow Build: The other build log, pt. 4

Header graphic for the Kwik-Fli, Slow Build blog series, but a different graphic for the break. This one shows a partially built B-17 kit with a red side bar.

Beppe’s taking a break from building right now, but the museum isn’t taking a break!

We’re currently sharing the work log of an unknown modeler who attempted to build a Cleveland B-17 Flying Fortress kit in 1946.

The unknown modeler took about a month long break before spending a good amount of time over two weeks working on the spars.

Scan of a page from the build log of a B-17 Flying Fortress. The log is a graph and this one has 4 lines completed for 11/18, 11/19, 11/21, and 11/24 1946. During this week he spent 9.5 hours splicing the spars and tapering and gouging them.

Hmm… how much progress is being made here?

Follow along during the next few months to find out how far he gets!  Next post: October 1, 2019
