The Bally Bomber has been one man's undertaking for over a decade now. You may have seen or heard about this project. This is the only 1/3 scale B-17. Please enjoy this site and share it with your friends.

Special note on a question that comes up.

THIS IS NOT A R/C AIRCRAFT

A friend tipped me off about this project, this man has built a 1/3 scale B-17 and is about to take it up for the first time. It's a thing of pure beauty!

I hope he knows what he’s doing - “things of pure beauty” do not always fly.

Very cool. I'm thinking in terms of little bitty machine guns. Manned by midgets.

I'll go away now.
