A Limited edition model kit of the Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress used by the famous 100th Bomb Group, known as "The Bloody Hundreth"

  • Decal sheet for 7marking options from the 100th Bomb Group from 1943 to 1944

The 100th Bomb Group gained the reputation as the ‘Bloody Hundredth’ due to the heavy losses they suffered. On their first mission alone the 100th Bomb Group lost three planes and thirty men. The 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum functions as both a place for learning as well as reflection on the hardships faced by those stationed at Thorpe Abbotts.

The 100th Bomb Group flew their first combat mission on 25th June 1943 and its last on 20th April 1945. During those 22 months they were credited with 8630 missions with the terrible loss of 732 airmen and 177 aircraft. The group would go several months without any casualties and then on one mission might lose half the group.

With this model kit you can build one of the B-17's flown by this group of brave pilots.
