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 LB-30 (or Liberator II) was designed specifically for the British RAF and 140 units delivered.
Various LB-30s received the same modifications as C-87 Transport (lengthened and enclosed nose and tail sections,
cargo doors, removal of bomb bay, turrets and armaments, etc)
Operating as Ferry transport, many aircraft were flown and operated by commercial companies hired by the RAF.
BOAC worked closely with the ferry Command, supplying their own crews and pilots.

AL507 was one such "Civilian Freighter" operated by BOAC, but still under RAF control and designation.

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
13 pages includes cover page, assembly Instructions and diagrams
and 10 pages of full colour printable parts.
This is a medium to advanced skill level kit.
