Details

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 need for more long range high altitude Transport aircraft led to the creation of the C-87 Liberator Express.
The B24D Liberator was stripped of all armaments and gun turrets, and a floor added within the Bomb Bay area.
Side fuselage windows and removeable Seats were fitted in this area, accomodating 16 passengers.
A large rear Cargo door was also added, as well as a nose door replacing the forward canopy and nose turret.
[A luxury transport version (the C-87A) was fitted with plusher seats and sleeping berths.]

Almost 300 C-87 aircraft were produced alongside B-24Ds, from 1942 to 1944. This included C-87A conversions,
as well as AT-22 Flight Engineer training aircraft. While most were operated by the USAAF, many were lend/leased to the RAF for use by Transport Command.

Only five AT-22 training aircraft were produced and distributed to various US air fields, equipped with six Flight Engineer stations within the modified fuselage for the instruction of air engineers in operating conditions and under full power...essentially for such aircraft as the Boeing B-29 and the Consolidated Vultee B-32, which are the first large combat aircraft in the USAAF to have separate completely equipped engineer's stations.

This model, originally based on an older marek design features many modifications including 3D Landing Gear,
 a historically accurate paint scheme and markings, detailed  texturing and photo-realistic effects.

Final Model has a wingspan of about 26" .
Contains approx. 280 parts
14 pages includes cover page/historical info, assembly Instructions and  diagrams
and 10 pages of full colour printable parts.
This is a medium to advanced skill level kit.

Please note: other than a different cover and historical information page...and a different aircraft serial number...
 this model is essentially identical to the 1:50 scale C-87 Liberator Express kit from Dave's Card Creations.
