HobbyBoss 1/32 B-24 Liberator 'D' Wongo Wongo


Recommended Posts

It's me again with yet another 1/32Liberator build from HobbyBoss this time it's the 'D'.
Built almost straight from the box, I did add belts, .50 cals from Master Models, National ingsignia Stencils from DN-Models and standard Stencils from Profimodeller.

Painted with Gunze Acrylics and Lacquer paints and weathered with Ammo of Mig washes etc.

For all the Facebook users who are bored of seeing me spamming this, sorry  :D

Thanks everyone for your kind words, I had thought my 5 minutes of internet "fame" were over but an article over on LSP (not written by me) has rekindled interest.

I store them in a rather large cabinet I have in my build room, it's 3000x2000x800mm L,H,D (see attached)

They took about 3 - 4 weeks each to complete.

Nice pair of Liberators, congratulations. Seeing your display case makes me a little envious, but on the other hand, I don't display my builds :D. Anyway, always nice to see you putting together an 'unbuildable' kit with such a nice outcome twice. Busted the busters :rofl:.

Cheers Rob

I was looking at the pics you posted of the J build and had a quick question. On the turrets, how did you glue together the two halves so neatly. The seam line looks to be be fairly fine.

I used UV seting epoxy resin then clamped it up real tight, then applied the UV light. Once it was set I liberally applied clear CA to fill up any gaps and then sanded it all down using grits down to 12,000 grit.

I had hoped to make it totally invisible thinking I could do it like the auto windscreen people do repairs.
