  1. My 1/48 conversion coming out this weekend maintains my primary focus of easy assembly. There would be 4 cuts in all to et to the basic airframe. I am nt doing mine like the Koster set, or even the Cutting Edge set of 2005. this is all new simplified engineering. While I will have to see what kind of amount of resin will be needed, I'm thinking in the $225 range. Keep in mind, it's a whole nother bird.
  2. What are your all thoughts on a PB4Y-2 Privateer conversion for the Hobbyboss kit? I'm up to my elbows in 1/48 Privateer conversion that I will be releasing this coming weekend. So while I have all the parts, plans and drawings out, I'm thinking maybe taking a serious whack at doing this project.
  3. I don't see anything. PM here with what it is I can help you with?
  4. Thanks! I just refunded half your shipping fees.
  5. Thank you for your order. I have refunded the shipping charge on one of your two sets.
  6. These turrets are now available for purchase on Ebay. I ship internationally and do combine shipping. For international buyers and fans of the big scale Liberators, with the D model coming out, you may want to make your money go further by buying two Consolidated turrets and oene Emerson to cover both aircraft and have the turrets shipping for the price of one shipping fee. Plan your life!
  7. The vac top for the Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24 Liberator Consolidated turret is real close to where I am happy with it. I need to polish the resin die a little more. Outside of that, I'm really happy with the fit to the bottom. I have to grind out the inside of the bottom to allow fitment of the kit interior.
  8. The first pressing of the replacement Emerson Turret for the Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24 Liberator is a success. Next up I will continue work on the Consolidated turret. I am working on the Consolidated unit and will have it ready tomorrow 3/16 and available for sale om Sunday 3/17. They are being sold individually for $15 each.
  9. I'm not making changes to the Consolidated turret. I am reworking the completely bogus Emerson turret to look as close to the original as possible. Will it be perfect? Doubt it. Not even the Tamiya 1/48 Wildcat pleased everybody. But for $15 a piece, most will get a dinner and a show, and go home happy. I will keep all of the non clear details. The wind covers over the machine guns are wrong sized, That's the only real change to the Emerson you'll see.I am not doing any interior work. My mission is to eliminate the stupid seams, incorrect size of the Emerson, and make these two sets affordable.
  10. I think I have the two turrets correctly proportioned. Consolidated on left, and Emerson on right and in first cast resin. I will fill in the seam between the new top and the turret bottom. Then make a new mold. from there I will cut, chop, and grind the upper and lower dies, then make molds. I hope to have the Emerson done tomorrow. Then on to the Consolidated. That should not be too difficult to get into production. This weekend is looking better for release.
  11. I have a feeling the Emerson turret is hosed up way worse then just the frosted plastic. I think the damn thing is grossly undersized in comparison with the Consolidate A6 unit. Correct me if I'm wrong. But isn't the Emerson supposed to be taller then the Consolidated? The Emerson that sits in front of the plane and sits proud of the area in front of the windscreen? Picture provided of the Consolidated on the left and Emerson on the right. Thoughts? The Emerson in the 1/48 Monogram is taller then the Consolidated.
