Kwik-Fli, Slow Build: The other build log, pt. 5

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 spent another week working on the B-17 kit, cutting and gluing the spars.

Scan of a "Time Card' documenting work on a Cleveland B-17 kit. This log is a graph and only 2 lines filled out for 11/25 and 11/26 1946 when the modeler clut and glued intermediate spars, and then cut the stab's left elevator for a total of 6 hours.

But then, that’s it. Life got in the way, and he left the kit unfinished.
