Why Choose this Model Kit?

  • The kit celebrates the aircraft's storied legacy with vivid artwork, inviting enthusiasts to assemble a piece of aviation heritage. With 278 parts, completing this model offers not only a sense of accomplishment but also a profound appreciation for the engineering marvels of the past. Once assembled, the model spans 46.5cm in wingspan and measures 29.8cm in length, embodying the grandeur of the original aircraft at a 1:72 scale.
  • This edition replicates the B-24H Liberator, notable for its operational significance during the war. It was a game-changer, capable of carrying extensive bomb loads over long distances, even under intense enemy fire. The 'H' model introduced significant enhancements, including an electrically operated Emerson A-15 nose turret to counter frontal attacks, among approximately 50 other modifications. This variant underscores the Liberator's evolution into a formidable combat aircraft.
  • The B-24's narrative began when Consolidated Aircraft decided to create a bomber that would surpass the B-17 Flying Fortress. The result was the XB-24 prototype, a distinctive aircraft with shoulder-mounted thin wings and a twin-boom tail, marking a departure from conventional designs. Its introduction to the USAAF in 1941 marked the start of mass production, showcasing America's industrial capabilities. The B-24 Liberator's production numbers exceeded any other four-engined bomber in warfare history, emphasizing its vital role in the Allied victory.
