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.
