B-24 Liberator 1/33 Scale

Ahoy Fellas
Holding off for a short recess on the B-17 Beta build time to start a new thread, Ok Shipmates this is a 1/33 Scale gomix Fly model B-24 Liberator Bomber. reviewing the kit about the same degree of that of the halifax bomber. This will be my first B-24 that I will build the last one i had was an ancient kit Revell made in 1956.I remember it i got it for christmas in that year. I han,t built one scince, so I will give this one a whirl. Before I start I would like to thank Mr. Ron Hall for makeing this build again possible. A swell gentlemen to say the least a modlers modlers.


Here is a attachment of the kit I am starting to turn two on. Time 17:21 The build begins.

Thumbs up Brilliant

Hey Grandad, this is AWESOME. I love the engines on this aircraft, the oval cowling's give a real swell look to her. I look forward to this build as i do for all your great works of art. Ron is a great guy, we are getting to see some marvels come to life thanks to him.

Fuselodge and skin assembly continued

Ahoy Fellas
Still at it, constructing the sub assemblies of the fuselodge. here are some update attachments of the exploded sub assemblies. should have these done by this evening. then the next step will assembling the fuselodge units. The build is very enjoyable so far, no fit issues, One thing I like about the kit in general is the olive drab paint schedule. the kit gives you an option a choice of dissplaying the bomb bay or have them closed . I elected to have them closed. On the sibject of the bomb bay, there is one flaw on the bomb bay doors they should have been corregated instead of a couple lines printed simulateing the bomb bay door itself, At first I was pondering on makeing 4 bomb bay door assemblies and inking in the corregated lines to simulate the corregated surfaces, but instead to leave well enough alone it wont spoil the kit. Here are the update attachments, the ships mascot had have his picture taken too. not as cute as Rons little Pug Sweety

Wow Boats so much done already!.Looks like another fantastic build on its way and another huge model to try and fit into the house.I had the pleasure of having a chat and a cup of tea with a former Blenheim bomber pilot who went on to fly Liberators for Coastal Command.He had some very funny stories about the ways they tried to beat the cold.I look forward as always to following your build.
