Needing to break out of my current rut - once I've finished the two-seat Spit - and a couple of other projects... What I have in mind is a conversion of the forthcoming HobbyBoss B-24J to a Privateer. Yes - I *know* it's a lot of work - and lots of scratch-building - but I've always liked the Privateer (I blame the Matchbox kit when I was a lot younger). As this will purely be for my enjoyment - rather than a magazine, or customer, build - I recon I can make some rapid progress and not worry about it too much. Having spent a lot of time looking into it I recon it's doable - but I want to take a run at it when the kits arrive and we start the multi-engine group build. With the aim of being able to hit the ground running I'm collecting as much reference material as possible - the biggest challenge is in finding all the detail info you need on something like this. Have two books on the way: Also found an e-book on Google: Have found some walk-round images here: https://www.net-maquettes.com/pictures/consolidated-pb4y-2-privateer/ Some useful images via Pinterest: https://pin.it/vn4j2x7neqrgup And there are copies of drawings kicking about: https://www.google.com/search?q=consolidated+privateer+drawings&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiA_tnt7_HdAhWGNcAKHX_gBO8QsAR6BAgFEAE&biw=1440&bih=768 Also found someone on Ebay that's selling CDs of some of the tech docs. I *really* fancy doing one of these - Aeronaval Indochina: OK - so possibly a mad project I'll never finish - but feeling really positive about this one... So - on lookout/leads to any/more info on the Privateer - gaps I really need to fill at the mo: Any dimensional details - fuselage, cowlings and tail - pref from Consolidated drawings/station dimensions Detail shots of cowlings/nacelles and the lumps and bumps around the nose Anything else that might be useful! Generally - any Privateer info gratefully received! Anyone up for having a go too - and sharing info/mouldings? Iain
