Hi Lain

Thanks for your answer, will be starting on mine in a week or two, so it was nice to know if the 300 g was sufficient, but we will see ;o)

Do you know where can I finde drawings for the missing rivets? Tryed on the internet, but don't seem to be able to find any line drawings for the rivets.

Hi Tommy,

 

Not found anything definitive yet - but not really at that stage yet - wan't to sort the wings first.

 

Good luck with your build - the kit is a great canvass in my opinion - hopefully you'll share photos on the forums and we can all egg each other on!  :)

Here is the page out of the instructions, I was wrong, it calls for 300 grams of weight which is as stated above by Alain, .66 of a pound

Not trying to steal a thread, but somone asked about wheels, here are the wheels for the P-38,

and the obverse

I think it wold make a nice looking front wheel for the Liberator,  the modeler could cut a disc and cover the spokes.

That main gear casting is very undersize and looks like a telescope not a continuous diameter leg. Nose gear looks ok but the main leg looks pretty poor.

SAC have done a whole gear leg set to come that looks pretty good if the white metal is not soft.

Hope Eduard go all out but not holding my breath..Brassin gear legs would be awesome.

Great work on the B-24!

Hi Darren,

 

The brass inserts are exactly the same a the kits - and will be strong.

 

The SAC set is a direct copy of the kit parts as well (with the plastic jackets fitted) - but, from experience, won't be strong.

 

You takes your pick.

 

The shapes of the kit parts are out I reckon - but you stand a better chance of fixing by using the brass set and modding the plastic jackets to suit.
