    Yes,If you have ever seen the movie Memphis Belle ,it depicts a rather hair raising incident involving the ball turret.

    I have the same model...built by my Dad for his cousin, who happened to be a ball turret gunner on a '17 in WWII. Missing ONE prop blade, though:(

    Cut out 4 plastic discs and tacked them to the crankcases to protect them from overspray. 20171030_010148.jpg

    Loved modeling as a kid .One day I came home from playing after school and my 2 younger brothers were on the roof tossing my airplanes as if they could fly.Let me tell you it was a blood bath till the old man put a ceasefire in effect.I can still picture those 2 little bastards wooping for joy as they crashed to the ground then their cries of terror as the war was on,lol.
