Eduard 1:72 B24 Liberator, Coastal Command
Hey chaps, just thought I would post a recent commission, a long time since I completed anything! A bit of a departure for me, this being my first 'American' build, but as a Coastal Command version. A lovely kit and painting a white scheme is real challenge what with trying not to make it look, umm...white! I used a very light grey on top of a white base and then weathered with oils. I forgot to write down which squadron this one was attached top so maybe one of you bright sparks may know?
A very tricky scheme even though it looks very simple - a challenge having to mask the leading edge curves of the vertical stabs and spray black (actually dark grey for scale). Replacement brass barrels are a nice alternative to the poor kit parts. I made the base with a laser cutter.
Apologies for the poor images, I did them last minute on my phone, at night!
Next stop, the Airfix Walrus!
