Here is Academy’s 1/72 scale Consolidated B-24H Liberator "Lazy Lou".

I made this more than ten years ago, and spent three months building this kit.

The main modifications are as follows.

  • I refined the port-side engines using thin rod, wire and solder lines

  • I used aluminum tape to express the step of the board.

  • I added various scratch built parts to the inside of the fuselage & turrets

  • On the outside surface, I thinned the panel lines, reproduced the overlapping between the panels by piling up the instant adhesive, and added rivets by using the Hasegawa etching saw.



  • All of the clear parts was replaced with home made parts.

  • Nose-art and all markings other than the stencils on the propeller blades are painted.



I did not use any after market parts at all.
