Oh no. If they just scale it down from their 1/32 scale release, then it would be a mess. Wrong wing profile, wrong top turret, cockpit canopy with shape issues, nose and tail turret with a seam right through the glass domes, engine detail is ridiculous, wheels badly designed and vinyl tires, overall detailed like 1/72 scale. I really had hoped for a new B-24 in 1/48, done by a quality brand, well researched. But Hobby Boss' sloppy implementation is just awful and annoying. Would have been better if HK Models or someone else had done it (their Lancaster and B-17 are a thousand times better).

Maybe combining it with parts from the Monogram kit. Although the cockpit canopy is also wrong in shape (flat like some elephant has used it as a resting place). So far Hasegawa is the only brand which replicates this most produced U.S. bomber close to perfect.

What I have seen from test-builds…nope, can't take it seriously. Battleship-like Rivets, pilot canopy simplified and out of shape, overall detailed like 1/72 scale, nose section (chin/bombardier window etc.) out of shape and nose/tail turret still with a seam right through the dome. Although they have fixed the Davis-Wing profile and the top turret framing, it's still toy'ish and crude like the 1/32 edition. Just look at the side-views in the kit manual…it's off, looking like a cartoon. And by the way, "Witchcraft" was a Ford produced B-24H, having the slanted bombardier window and different nose turret fairing. Sorry, not my B-24.

Sooo, suddenly the boxart pops up the same day (Oct 23rd) as the *Out of Stock" page at Squadron. Just a week before Telford? Coincidence?!?! Not a pre-order, but an OOS- notify me when back in stock.

Can't wait. It looks very good as a project for long autumn/winter evenings.
