Monogram 1/48 Consolidated B-24D Liberator "Moby Dick"

August 17, 2019 · in Aviation · 30 · 4.8K

Hello! I present a new ... although no, the old one, the model from Monogram is the B-24 Liberator. Although the model is 36 years old, but she looks pretty good, she got together well. I had to suffer a little with decals. And in general, if you look at the model from afar, it makes a very good impression)))
Pleasant viewing!

  1. Hello Maxim...Nice job on a classic Monogram did the ole girl proud with your fine modeling skills. One of the best builds I've seen of that kit. My congratulations.

  2. Nicely done! I really like your distressed panel lines, especially on top of the engines and on the mouth (left side). Very convincing. Great color modulation too.

  3. How to make a wonder with a four decades old kit. Bravo!

  4. looks fantastic - excellent paint job especially!

  5. Thank you, guys! Glad you liked it!

  6. Impressive work!

  7. Beautifully done. I love that kit and you did it well!

  8. Great work on this kit. Perfect level of distressing. Photos look great also.

  9. Wow, this is an amazing B-24! The OD painting and it’s weathering is very realistic, at minimum very convincing to the eye. Got to mention also that build looks very solid, flawless. Are the decals from the box?

  10. Very nice looking Liberator

  11. They've said it all, my friend...outstanding build!

  12. Well done Maxim, super job all around.

  13. Really well done. I have always liked these big Monogram kits. I know what you mean about the decals. Unresponsive to most chemicals known to mankind and therefore very durable. You did well to get them to settle down onto the surface that well.

  14. Very convincing result!

  15. Really nice job on this kit, Maxim. Old Monogram and Revell kits are still fun to build and will give you a nice model if you take a little care with the build. Your paint and weathering look really good. I usually try to replace the decals, but sometimes they are tough to replace.

  16. Yes, the old kits are good for everyone, except for one - you need to spend a little more time. A little bit )))

  17. Very well done, Maxim! The old Lib looks great!

  18. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Maxim, you have done a great job on that classical Monogram kit. Nice and convincing weathering. Thanks for sharing these images.

  19. Thanks everyone! I would only be glad if my work pushes someone to build their Liberator)

  20. Really nice Maxim! In the right hands - like yours - that old warhorse can definitely look good.

  21. Some strong work on a Monogram Classic that is deserving of being on the "Model of the Month " list. I really like that first photo in the series it really gives the look and feel of the B-24. Nothing over done or over stated.

  22. That is very nice indeed! I love those old Monogram kits and have built a number of them my self. I even vacuformed my own nose to convert the J to a D model. Your model inspires me to do another. Beautiful job with a very nice finish.

  23. Absolutely stunning!

  24. That really is a beauty! Forget "from afar," it looks fantastic up close and personal!

  25. Thank you all once again, Greg - you personal thank you)!

  26. That's a beautiful job on that classic kit, and makes for an eye catching model. Congrats!

  27. Hello Maxim,
    Monogram, even if it is 36 years old, still the best around.
    What did surprise me, was the fact that you used the old decals.
    Now than the result is incredible. Good job on this old workhorse.
    It looks like a real powerhouse.
    Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.
