  1. Any news on this topic, CJ? As for SolidWorks, keep in mind that the best tool is the one you know how to use!
  2. Sorry for the amount of photos, but there are too many details to show...
  3. Greetings everyone! Here's another battery of details inserted in the 1/72 kit of the B-24D...
  4. Now the weapons... Creating weapons from scratch... Tomorrow I'll post more pictures of the result... (SURPRISE!!)
  5. Thanks Slartibartfast... I also liked the result. Hello Ikon... after closing the fuselage halves the front wheel will be able to lower and raise using gravity and a small lever located at the bottom will lock the wheel in place. Almost that...thanks Ron! Thanks B-17 Guy ! (I also have a B-17F to assemble)... Gentlemen, here are more details added to the model before I close the fuselage halves...
  6. Thanks Major Walt and Crackerjazz ! The navigator had a wooden table for maps... I made a table for my model with plastcard and put a map on it... (Philippines Map)... I ended up giving a tip about the appointments, right? Visual result so far... Starting electrical detailing...
  7. Thanks, Ikon! Continuing... Now it's time for the hydraulic detailing present in almost the entire fuselage... I made it using a very thin wire... The hinged door between the bomb bay and the rear of the aircraft... Door for the fire extinguisher present at the front of the aircraft... Hydraulic accumulator... More details added... https://i.ibb.co/6NQ2Dfc/Liberator0230.jpg Added front landing gear... it can lower and retract...
  8. Thanks Ikon! Thanks Major Walt ! Now the controversy over the front landing gear doors... The various versions of the B-24 feature the front landing gear doors opening inwards or outwards (this depends on the B-24 version and also the manufacturer)... The "D" version usually features the front landing gear doors opening inwards, but the Revell kit doesn't portray this... I chose to modify the kit to open these doors inwards... Study of the mechanism... Kinematics of the front wheel recoil.
  9. Thanks JackMan ! Let's go on... The color chosen for the interior was based on the ANA (Army-Navy Aircraft) reports “Dull Dark Green” (FS-34092) aimed at bombers... I made the stairs to the lower floor. It gives access to the bomb bay... Until the next post !
  10. Making a dryfit to analyze... Making some changes... Detailing the interior (which had nothing in the kit)... Evaluating the front windows... An error to correct... One more detail made in functional scratch... See you later...
  11. Thanks JackMan! I was looking at the structural interior of the Liberator and noticed that the Revell kit doesn't come NOTHING to portray the structural beams... Nothing inside the Revell kit, so I removed all the fittings and sanded the entire interior... I designed the parts I will need to assemble a nice interior for the kit... Using plastcard strips, I started to structure the entire interior of the fuselage... I made a way to open the windows of the side gunners...
