Ken Hargreaves built this B-17 as a Christmas gift for his Dad, Bill Hargreaves. That's Bill on Christmas day with the fruits of Ken's labor.
Ken wanted to leave it uncovered to show off the intricate stick construction.
Quite a project . . . . . very nice gift !
Ken also has the prototype ready for next year's GX fleet . . . pretty stuff !

The Ultimate Carbon Coyote - engine set back into the lead edge - carbon fiber boom - coffee can coring - little bidy aluminum mounts - outside holes moved closer to spar to minimize twisting and increase strength per a Larry Driskill suggestion
Latest, below, is more a conservative approach - no set back - wooden mounts - arrowshaft boom - seems to fly just as good and allows me to recycle existing center sections - note only three coffee can holes to reduce twisting at wing tips

The three photos below are Jeff Vader's new model room. Most of his efforts this winter have been put into this project, however, as you can see, in some of the photos, he is just now, beginning to put together some foamies.

One of the interests Mark has outside his modeling activities.
