Kit Observations of the Airfix B-17
Kit Observations of the Airfix B-17G A08017
The new Airfix 1/72 scale B-17G Flying Fortress is a special thing to people my age, and perhaps background. I have been a model builder for many years. One of the kits I looked forward to the most as a child was the B-17. For me, it meant two kits, because I could actually find one of each. It meant the Revell and Airfix B-17 kits. As a child, I bought a kit with allowance money and built it over about a day, and the next day would play with a group of friends with it. The other kids did about the same thing. I think all of us had a thing for B-17s. At least, I know I did - and still do. That is why I jumped at the chance to pick up the new Airfix B-17G.
I may update this, as I build it. I have already washed the kit to remove the mold release agent, and put some stray parts in a baggie. One of the exhaust manifolds has come free of the tree, and in the process broken the part - one of the pieces of the manifold is on the tree still.

My name is Veronica Claire. I am Transgender (MtF), so in considerate parlance I am a female. I am middle aged, and I have been interested in art most of my life. I grew up drawing, mostly airplanes and caricatures. I like plastic models and working the plastic. I hate painting it. Figures have become kind of a highlight for the fun they provide. I'm fond of pictures and I try to recognize the moment in photography. You know it when you see it. I have many things to learn, and maybe too late I have learned people are the most important part of my life, and consequently I limit my time for art and will pay the price of being a limited artist. Art is about loving what I do, not about food on the table for me.
I'm not an angel, but I do have standards, and eros is fine with me but it does not define me. I am not fond of the way groups of people become sexualized, particularly women, gay and trans people. We are more than that; or can be given an equal chance.
