FYI
I modified my Mustang Pedestal Stand to fit the B-24 model.
For those of you who hate building landing gear (lol).

Enlarged it, and altered the pedestal to match the Liberator fuselage.
You can download it free along with the other stands at my website
and at Paper Model Shop Home (in the Extras section)

Warning...the Lib is a much bigger model, even at 1/50 scale!
And so the stand will require some bracing and strengthening underneath
with some heavier card. I leave it up to the builder to sort out the best
display options using this stand...but at least it gives you something to
start with!

well, I've been sitting on this kit for (how many?) weeks now...
and as usual, I should have just test built the parts myself.
One of these days, I will learn.

so, I printed up the latest version of the "enclosed tail" parts and gave them
a test fit...and with a couple more tweaks, I think I have a working design.






I also noticed a funny thing about one of the rear formers.
Seems the last few kits have a slightly different Former H.
(Thats the former that sits directly underneath the horiz. Tail wing)

It is taller than it should be.
Not the wrong shape...just a little too tall.
You see, the top of the former is cut off to allow clearance for the Tail wing.
Darwin showed, in his "Grumpy" build thread, that the following former (I)
also need to have its top lopped off for clearance.
(On his Grumpy build, Former H was correctly sized)



But for some reason, I have a second Former H floating around...and in a couple
of kits...that is too tall.
So...its a simple matter of trimming down the Former to meet the wing cutout.
Its pretty obvious I think, so I won't changing all the models in stock.
But its something I am alerted to and will try to make sure all subsequent B24s
have the shorter Former H.

Nothing else to see here...move along.

...............
so, give me an hour ...or a day or two
...and the B-24 Assembly Ship "Ball of Fire" will be ready and in the shop!

Dave, you asked me the same thing about Former H in my Liberator build

I was thinking it was to lock the internal frame from the tail into the fuselage, but I never saw anything more on that

yeah, obviously I noticed something, changed something, messed something up
...and then forgot all about it.

thats the problem with having too many projects on the go all the time.

...and getting old.
