    Pros

    As advertised. Nice looking solid piece which serves an attractive paperweight. My wife saw it, and now she wants one. All I need is the rest of a B-17 to glue onto to it, and THEN I'll really be styl'n!

    Cons

    None. Pretty much as I expected. I'm happy.

    I liked this so much, I immediately ordered one for a long time friend from my high school class, whose father headed Boeing's design team for the B-17. I just heard from her that she was delighted with it as well!
