Consolidated B-24 Liberator

Review: 1/48 Liberator B-24J Hobby Boss Review

Fire fighting Privateer P4Y-2 walk-around at Centennial of Naval Aviation

One of the highlights for me was this Privateer. As a boy growing up in the Pacific Northwest during fire season I would sit on my roof and watch B-17s, B-24s and Privateers drop borate on the hills above our city. I believe this bird [...]

Review: Hobby Boss 1/48th B-24J Kit #81774

Monogram 1/48 B-24J: The Dragon and His Tail

A famous "nose art" sported by a Liberator serving in the Pacific Theater. I used Kitsworld Decals. Since the application of decals over large and uneven surfaces is tricky, I approached the project with caution. Nonetheless, the [...]

B-24H "TWO TON TESSIE"

I built this model from Revell kit number 5629 to honor my Uncle Harold Fox Jr.. He was the ball turret gunner aboard the aircraft when it was shot down over Austria in May of 1944. He bailed out and survived. I did a lot of research to [...]
