Ok just a brief update to show some of what has been occupying my time.


A great deal of time seems to have been spent trying to get the SCR 274 as close as I can to what I have found in pictures.  To that end it has been worked and reworked a number of times.

Lets take a look at what may be the final layout of the equipment.  Now remember there is still the wiring to add as well as painting and permanent installation.







And a quick glimpse of the main radio for the aircraft, the Bomb release panel from the Bombardier station, and finally part of the IFF system that sits under the Navigator station.  (Left to right)



For now that is it.

Ok how about another overview as the work continues for the B-24D by Revell.  Again remembering that the kit parts are in gray and the rest are my additions from styrene bits and bobs.

As I move forward on this something that has really caught me is how it seems to be coming together.  For this update some small parts such as the inter plane communication boxes and the heaters to larger things like the plumbing and wiring.  For this update I again mocked up much of what I have minus the O2 bottles, some of the walkway, and some of the plumbing. 












I am sharing two sets of images.  One is showing what will be seen through the cuts and the other just focuses on the detail itself.

I still have work to do on the interior.  More walkways, plumbing, and some smaller details however it is coming together.


Many thanks for all the kindness shown to this build and your very kind comments.  I am both honored and humbled.

I'm blown away every time I see the detail you build into these

Well a brief update is in order.

The time is here to throw a bit of paint at the white pieces.  My normal is a black under coat and then the main color.  I did some research and found that Liberators had a mix of colors but a couple of sources show Dull Dark Green for the forward sections, Aluminium for the bomb bay, and Interior Green for the aft sections.  I went with this.



Then the detail painting began.








I threw some dry brushing on as well to give it just a bit of wear.

Like I said just a brief update but turning a corner.

Next will be to continue to permanently attach the detail pieces.

How about a very brief update.

The interior of the Revell 1/48 B-24D is near complete. Just a couple of tidy up type of things to do. I have also finished off the wings. Still a ways to go but closer to the end than the beginning at this point.





And now a bit of news. Beginning this update pictures will be minimal. I spoke at length to a magazine editor recently and he is interested in this build. I am allowed to show teasers but not the whole shooting match. I agreed to this and am honored he likes my work.
