Many years ago I built Monogram's 1/48 scale B-17G, quite a nice kit. After going for a ride on the Collings Foundation's B-17G, I bought another kit, but I have not started it since decals for "Nine-O-Nine" are long out of print and hard to find. Found one set on eBay, but the bids just became ludricrous.

I've got that model sitting on a shelf waiting for a paint job and another in the box waiting for construction. The one thing I'd say for anybody going to build that PBY, scratch-build the main gear struts. The plastic ones are way too fragile. Yes, experience taught me that, yes I have to finish the first one in flight or water landed configuration, yes, I'm scratch-building the gear for the next one.
