Model worth building!
I'm really enjoying the Cobi building kits. Mostly they are Lego’s but formed parts put them in a model category! As a retired vet & senior I've been a fan of WWII vehicles and this Cobi company, a company in Poland has been putting out some great replicas! Too bad this type of manufacturing couldn’t have been done by an American company!? This B17F is a great model to build and display and because of its Lego characteristics, a nice conversation piece! I also have Cobi’s B17G version that I can hardly wait to get at… These Cobi models are truly worth collecting!!
