It has been quite a while since I did this.

This will be a long term, in depth project that will have quite a bit of work.


The subject...

That is my plan for sure.  I just hope to do it justice.

Been a while hasn't it....

Must be about time that I show some progress. 

First up is to play with the fuselage.  Had to try to figure out first where the cuts would have to be. 




The next step is to remove the interior detail from the fuselage interior.



Now the fun begins.

The interior begins with the addition of styrene strips to simulate the interior smaller vertical framing and the horizontal stringers.



This is the first part of this. 

Next up will be to begin the deconstruction and construction of the details.

Part two of the update.

Beginning working on the kit details was to remove them.

This is what the kit has.






Then the reconstruction began.  First up is a little work on the cockpit.

Looking at the seat there is something missing.  On the right is the kit seat and on the right my version.




Some additional of what little I have accomplished.





I did also play a bit with the wing area as this section will be visible.

Beginning with the inner space between the wings.



And then moving on to some of the smaller details, bounced around quite a bit at this point.





I also began to construct the radio set.




More updates hopefully soon.

No kidding!  I think we're seeing a whole new level of detail for one of these ol' warbirds.  Can't wait to see more!

Ok, how about a brief update.

Now although it may not look like it there is some progress.  Work is continuing on the interior details and the placement.  Of the work so far the focus has been on the cockpit, the nav station, and the radio equipment.  A little has been accomplished in the bombadier station.

For this update let me let the pictures tell the story.  Remembering all that is kit is the Gray plastic while all else is from myself.






Now the third image is the radio set and that even since the picture was taken has changed a bit.  More on the next update.

And an update on the 1/48 Revell B-24D.

I had to make a decision about the nose gear assembly.  The kit part looked more like a blob of plastic that held the actual gear.  It just didnt look right compared to the pictures and drawings that I have found.  Out came the spare stuff and this is the result.



Also the time has come to bring out the Dremmel and begin to make some rather large holes.






Most has been cleaned up and you can see just what the holes show now.  Pretty satisfied for sure.  Next is to try to get myself to focus on working on the details.  To be honest this has been a struggle as of late.
