Here is my Combat Models Vacform B-24J Lberator in 1/32nd scale which I finished earlier this year.
The model depicts an 8th Air Force B-24J of the 446th Bomb Group, 707th Bomb Squadron based at Bungay, Suffolk, UK, in April 1945.
It has taken 14 months from start to finish. I have completely scratch built the interior, turret interiors, bomb bay, wheel wells and undercarriage. All panel lines were scribed on to the model. The transparencies, engines and propellers are the kit items, with additional detail added. Much of the interior detail was either scratch built or came for the spares box. The only after-market items were the guns and bombs which were resin.
All marking (with the exception of the national insignia) were sprayed onto the model with a mixture of acrylics and enamels.
It certainly was a very challenging build, but I must say I am pleased with the outcome!
The next project is ID's 1/32nd Vacform B-29!
