1/72 Academy B-24D Liberator

Gallery Article by Pablo Angel Herrera on Feb 21 2017



Hi folks, I hope you like this work. I found this kit on discount at my LHS and since long time I have liked the B-24 but for some reason didnīt have one so I bought it. As soon as I bought it I went home and opened it and started looking at it. Boy does this one need improvement. I checked for references to start doing some scratch interiors. I did the airframe structure, some interior panels and bomb bay with Evergreen and sprue pieces.

The kit came with some nice schemes but I came across with a Kits-World Zodiac decal sheet and got one. I got the Pisces one as my wife and named the ship after her. Canīt say those decals are great as they are expensive, donīt bond well and donīt come with serials (they say to get them in another set) so for me they are scam. In the end I used serials from leftovers to simulate something there; I was pleased with the results and my wife was very happy I put her name by hand on the nose of the plane.

I had to put huge amounts of weight to prevent this from being a tail-sitter after all the interior I added. It was painted with Model Master enamels, some Ammo washes and post-shading. In all it was an interesting project with nice results.
