B-17G Nine O' Nine Postage Stamp 1:155 Model

The B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed by Boeing for the United States Army Air Corps. It was a high-flying, long-range bomber, heavily used in World War II for daylight precision bombing of strategic military targets. It was highly effective and reliable, and developed a reputation of being able to return to its home base despite extensive battle damage.

The B-17 Nine-O-Nine was named after the last three digits of her serial number; 42-31909, and is representative of the B-17's tough reputation. After joining the war in 1944, the Nine-O-Nine completed 132 consecutive missions without aborting for mechanical reasons or loss of crew, believed to be a record. In all she flew 1,129 hours and dropped 562,000 pounds of bombs before returning to the US at the end of hostilities.

The Postage Stamp B-17G Nine-O-Nine is a die-cast metal model complete with a stand. The model is recommended for ages 14 and up.
