Older and with a few accuracy issues, it still makes a good looking B-24 model. This issue has cool markings, but the tail marking should be on a true blue background.

31. May at 18:07:01
Augie Ebay :) decals are shot to shit but for £20 couldnt argue
31. May at 19:06:34
Clifford Keesler Yea I have wanted that one for along time. You should be able to find aftermarket decals easily.
01. June at 00:38:56
Augie I will keep my eyes out for another for ya.
Decals should be, but I want USN markings for it.
01. June at 01:07:05
Clifford Keesler Ah, you are going to a Navy bird cool. What was the Naval deseganiton for the B-24, I know the B-25 was a PBJ-1 which is what my next B-25 will be.
03. June at 01:54:27
Clifford Keesler P.s. Thanks.
03. June at 01:54:46
Augie I think they were PB4Y-1
03. June at 10:13:47
Thomas Bischoff you have the Koster conversion set into a PB4Y1? There is currently one on Ebay
03. June at 10:56:37
Wim van der Luijt Great find, I like the heavies in 1:48 but have to figure out were to put them first
03. June at 14:01:10
Augie Hi thomas, i dont but think there were few earky ones that had original turret :)
03. June at 15:48:58
Thomas Bischoff indeed there are a few - I flipped through Naval Fighters vol 105 and found a handful in tri-colour camo and one very worn out white one. There's even one with sharkteeth and one with noseart
04. June at 20:49:31
Clifford Keesler I have seen the one with the shark mouth. cool looking plane.

Tim I put large amounts of lead in nose and frobt of engine nacelles....and it still tail sat. A clear bit of sprue glued to the tail bump skid keeps it from tail sitting.

ChevSam My father was the pilot of the Goon in the CBI. Great job on the model. I do have dvds of his 8 mm films taken during combat, in China and India.
25. January at 18:06:00
Robbie @ChevSam - you should post any stories your father had flying "The Goon" that he might of passed on to you. You google 'B-24 The Goon' and you get a ton of info back. The top gunner has some fame down here in Arizona.

KOJI OKADA Do you have a problem on engine cowling?
26. January at 07:38:03
Tim The detail on the cowlings was very subtle so I went over it with a panel line scribe. I also added deluxe materials liquid gravity into each cowling to help stop tail sitting (it did not work).
27. February at 19:42:57
Tim Thanks @ChevSam . The history of the aircraft and crew was very interesting and influenced which tail markings to use. Great nose art too.

This was a confusing sheet to get the details close to being right. It's obvious that Kits-World doesn't do a lot of in-depth research for their sheets. Or maybe I'm just used to having an abundance of resources for info? In any case, in "Out of the Desert" by John E. Blundell, it clearly describes "The Arkansas Traveler" as being the aircraft severely damaged and landing at Malta. He should know; He was on board of her at the time! Meanwhile the aircraft said to be destroyed by paratrooper sappers, using incendiary bombs, was earlier than than mission. Thus version 1 & 2 should be flipped around. This sheet only mentions the pilot of one craft, being Clarence Gooden, however, the pilot of "The Arkansas Traveler" was Lt. William Bacon. Fortunately this book provided a guideline of where their unit was stationed and approximately when. By all means, if I got any of the details wrong, please correct the data I've entered. Thanks!

Ron Garcia I think anyone interested in aircraft needs to build at least one of Monogram's (Revell now) big bombers. Think of it as a right of passage. I've built several of these starting when I was was a kid (a long time ago!). I bought an old Superscale decal set of The Dragon and His Tail many years ago and finally decided to take the plunge and build the model using the decals. Fits are rough and there is lots of sanding required - especially around the engine nacelles. I kept the bomb doors closed which helped eliminate some of the detail work. I left all the guns off until the end to avoid the inevitable snapping and losing of the gun barrels. The turrets must be glued together so they have a seam right through the clear areas. Maybe if some other company tackles this aircraft they'll find a better solution for this. Of course a bomber of this size would probably cost at least $200 USD nowadays! Speaking of clear parts, DEFINITELY invest in Eduard's mask set for this beast. It will save a TON of time, plus trying to figure out what should be masked on the turrets without their instruction guide is extremely difficult. I know from doing it the hard way with my previous builds of this kit. The model is a serious tail sitter. I added lead fishing sinkers, BBs, and even heavy nails, but it still sat on its tail. I ended up shoving some large heavy screws into the wheel well to get it to sit correctly. The aluminum finish was tough. I sanded and polished numerous coats of Alclad aluminum but some areas still ended up "pebbly". In the end, I got it to where I was satisfied with it and called it good. The decals went on surprisingly easily without any tearing. The clear areas between the red stripes on the rudder yellowed a bit after drying over the white rudders. I don't know if this was a "fun" build (I seriously hate seam filling and sanding) but it sure looks impressive sitting on the shelf. I still have (another) B-29, B-58, and B-1 to build and before I'm done with the big bombers in my stash. This one took long enough so it'll probably be awhile. If some other company produces a new B-24, with all the multimedia elements they are sure to add, I don't even want to think about how long it would take to complete it! Definitely not for me! Now go out and build one of these bombers!

The B-24H kit is a rather odd listing.
The changed parts 198x timeline is inconsistent with the new tool for the B-24D, the latter having come before the H kit. The review link is dead (404 error); and in light of the lack of review, it must be mentioned that the kit is not an H series at all but a San Diego J series with some ETO modifications and the A-15 Emerson turret included. Built from the box, it does not represent a B-24H, beong absent all the features unique to the H series.

Augie Well far as the name its listed under goes, its correct. Standard practice to list them as per the box details.

The date on it is a typo I think. Info i have seen says that release for this was around 98 which would make sense with the time line.

Cheers
29. April 2017 at 18:37:05
Phil Marchese Augie, that wasn t my point at all. I understand the naming convention. My point is, in the absence of a review link, that the infornmation I provided helps a buyer make an informed decison. That is a large part of what this site provides. In a less direct way, it also serves to provide a manufacturer researching the market availability, that the subject has not really been covered. Agree?

Phil Marchese Mocked-up with slip fit of the "half S" curve the I introduced into the Liberator lexicon in 2000. It replaced the S-curve at Block L-1--FO. I narrowed the academy A-15 Emerson by sanding the middle seams of both parts and lowered the profile by removing the raised mounting cam.
03. July 2014 at 15:43:55
Phil Marchese Moving along. mostly clear, home made parts and final assembly. working seams which are worn out on the 50 year old molds. Factory decals and insignia, guns and electronic will be last.

Phil Marchese Mock-up of homemade lower nose vacuformed L series clear panels. some triming and glazing for trapazoidal bomb scan windows is in progress.

Phil Marchese Working on the clear, homemade parts, always the tricky part of WWII multi-engine warplanes.
Added weight to flt eng deck but now the belly radar had to be counterbalanced to get CG adjusted.

Kelly Wellington Heh...It seems I failed to add the finish pix. It turned out reasonably well, but I had to buy aftermarket decals because the MPC decals that came with the kit were crud. What I found amusing was talking to the hobby shop staffer who, when I told him it was an MPC kit, he asked if it was white plastic. He hated all that white plastic that MPC evidently used. In this case, I didn't need to do much of the painting on the lower surfaces of the craft....it's white. It's unpainted.

Kelly Wellington The intent is to produce a facsimile of a RAF VLR Liberator II of the Coastal Command, 1943-5.
04. January 2014 at 03:03:21
Kelly Wellington Okay...I haven't even gotten photos up and I'm almost done.

It was in white, so I've so far left any lower portion of the craft in the color of the plastic. I don't know how spot painting will affect it...will find out.

This is a significant build. It's the first where I had multiple 'working' parts (props spin, wheels roll, mounted guns move, turrets turn...turning turrets with swivelling guns!) and I got them to all work as per the directions.

The kit is 'American Airfix' of the last millenia. The fit is okay with minor mismatch over the flight deck requiring plastic shaving, and the centerline joint needed light spackling. Small amounts of flash, easily dealt with...worst on the clear parts. Small problems with the gun elevation setup on two of the turrets (nose and tail)...the pin connecting the two barrels is a mite long...when they have to fit in to given slots, this becomes a big deal (and my biggest headache.

Oh...it's tailheavy. So much so, I think it might be pointless trying to counterweight it with the space I have available. *sigh*
25. January 2014 at 00:55:30
Kelly Wellington Oh...The wheels go up. And, with modest amount of fumbling, they can be extracted and repositioned in the gears down mode. They snap into place.

Kelly Wellington And control surfaces move, too!
