This is a 1/144 Scale B-17 "Bit O' Lace" Plastic Model Kit by Minicraft.
This historic aircraft was named after Miss Lace, created by famous
cartoonist Milton Caniff. It was painted by U.S. airman, Nick Fingelly. After
completing his armament training in 1943, Fingelly was sent to England and
joined the 709th Squadron, 447th Bomb Group. Due to his artistic background, he
was sought after for nose art. As he remembered, "I believe I painted nine or
ten aircraft and this I did in my spare time."
