Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

I have always had a thing for the PB4Y-2.  Too bad the only example in plastic is the OOP Matchbox kit.  I think it might be a tad too much considering the cost of the HB kit and then the cost of the conversion kit.  Lots of cutting and splicing, might be a good idea, but not a good seller.  I would think that Trumpeter or Hobby Boss would come out with one in 1/48 at least.

See what kind of feedback you get and what kind of commitment you can get from the modelers.  As much as I like the idea, I doubt I would pop for one.


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.
