Mind: this product is a conversion set used to convert or adapt a scalemodel. The scalemodel is not included and needs to be ordered separately.
TA4812 contains engine and cowl for the B 17C and you may use either the TA 4809 Saab B 17A or the TA 4810 Saab B 17B to get a C. The cowl is injection moulded and the engine is in resin for the perfect detail richness.
The B 17C received an Italian Piaggio engine and became the variant manufcatured in the lowest quantity. The airplane was also used to train the Danish volunteers who stood ready to aid with the liberation of Denmark and towards the end of the war a squadron of B 17C's were painted with Danish markings, ready to take off for Copenhagen. However, the order to do so never came and the B 17C thus never served with the Danish Flyvevåbnet.
