Best B-24 Kit in 1/72

Recommended Posts

Concur: Hasegawa.  It's not without a few errors here and there, but still the best of the bunch by far.  Academy/Minicraft is so-so.  Less accurate and detailed than Hasegawa, but much cheaper and easier to find.

FYI: The Academy engine nacelles are too small.

To me, that's by far the biggest issue of the Minicraft/Academy B-24s.  I've always wondered why Quickboost never made a set of replacement nacelles and cowls.  They've made all kinds of other aftermarket bits for the kit, like turbos, bomb bay doors, gun barrels, etc.  And Squadron did resin wheels and vac clear parts nearly 30 years ago. As far as I know, the only aftermarket cowls are from someone who made resin copies of the Airfix cowls it a bit of modification.  I went the same route making my own back in the 90s, but never got around to finishing the project.
