the air rescue B-17 is supposed to have a radar dome insted of the chin turret!!! and it allso is supposed cary a rescue boat on the under side of the fuslage. And it is NOT a coast gaurd B-17 what ever the web page says, as the coast guard B-17s have very diferant markings. a proper air rescue B-17 would look more like this:

It is true, the USCG has specific markings on it. When I did this repaint way back when, I used the Plastic kit as referance. I also so had info that G's and H models were used, I have the tail gun mod parts, and the radome for the nose, using the nose of the FG tomahawk cruise missile. As for the lifeboat have been working on one for it, been taking some time to get it right as I snagged it from a ship model and am reworking it. If any one wants the USCG version I can make it up.
