Kits-World decals 1/32 Boeing B-17F featuring Dragon Lady - KW132090

B-17F 'Dragon Lady' 551BS 385BG

Ann Haywood used her vivid imagination to create this powerful nose art painting which was based around an idea from one of the crew.

Assigned to 385th Bomb Group in mid September 1943, this B17F was lost on 13th February 1944 while attacking a No-Ball V-weapon site near Calais. A direct flak hit wounded several crew members and put two engines out of action. Struggling back, the Fortress was forced to ditch into the Channel. Pilot Lt Edwin Herron pulled six of his crew from the sinking aircraft and was later awarded a DSC for his actions. Air Sea Rescue picked up seven survivors after two and half hours.
