1/50 Consolidated PB4Y B-24D Liberator NAMU 309 Paper Model
The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was an American heavy bomber, designed and largely built by the Consolidated Aircraft Company of San Diego, California.
It was produced in greater numbers than any other American combat aircraft of World War II, and still holds the record as the most-produced American military or naval aircraft.
The B-24 was used by several Allied air forces and navies, and by every branch of the American armed forces during the war, attaining a distinguished war record with its
operations in the Western European, Pacific, Mediterranean, and China-Burma-India Theaters.
The Consolidated PB4Y-1 was the US Navy version of the B24D, adapted for longe range anti-ship and anti-submarine patrols.
The aircraft were generally not equipped with the same air to air defensive armament as their B24 counterparts.
Some PB4Y were used at the Naval Aircraft Modifcation Unit (NAMU) in Johnsville Pennsylvania, for the testing and evaluation of various Missiles and Drones.
