1/72 Pro Modeler B-17G

During a recent trip to my local hobby shop looking for the sought after Tamiya Paints, I came across the new Pro Modeler (by Revell) B-17G Flying Fortress in 1/72 scale. Next to the kit, they had the Revell of Germany B-17 as well with a price tag of $41.25. I was not aware of Pro Modeler’s release, so I asked one of the employees if I could open the box to see if I was dealing with a re-pop kit with raised panel lines. To my surprise, it is the same B-17 as the new Revell of Germany but at a better price of $26.95.

This is the MSRP and the hobby shop is running a 20% off on all plastic model kits during this month of October. So with the discount the kit went down to $21.56.  At that price I grabbed 2 B-17’s for the price of 1 Revell of Germany Kit 😉

So there you have it, look for the new Pro Modeler’s B-17G in a hobby shop near you.
