Have your favorite artist paint your wife, girlfriend or anyone you desire on a panel worthy of display anywhere. You would have a hard time not thinking it came right off a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, since everything is right off the measurements of the real aircraft, right down to the 700+ rivets and spacing. Yellow bombs are just stickers to give you a feel for how they would look after your artist paints them on. There are some minor flaws in the aluminum, a few dents, scratches, but they are all there to look as close to a real B-17 panel as possible, they never even left the factory perfect, it was WWII and they were rushed out of the factory. The panel is finished to represent a well preserved panel as if it flew missions, and was left in storage the last 70+ years. The 4 Bulkheads are hand crafted from. 050 aluminum over a hand made red oak buck with lightening holes and riveted onto the panel to provide the correct shape of the fuselage. There is a radio squawk box that is not period correct, but that can be easily removed.
