Impressive Airfix B-17G Build Detailed in Stop Motion [Video]

Modeler extraordinaire Tom Grigat is back with a new stop motion animation video detailing his construction of Airfix’s 1/72 B-17G model kit.

The build included aftermarket parts from CMK (Special Hobby) and also saw Tom simulating “stressed skin” for the first time, although he reports that he ran into some issues, stating that he “scratched to hard into the surface and the effect might be a bit too strong.”

The machine’s metallic surfaces are simulated using several paints from alclad II (accentuated with metal powder from Uschi van der Rosten) while engine detail and antennas saw the use of material from Albion Alloys.
