Super detailed GIANT scale models. Some of the most popular airplanes in WWII in large scale detail. The P-38 with its unique fuselage was one of the most popular fighters, the B-17 and B-25 both great bombers of the era and the PBY-5a was one of the most successful 'flying boats' ever produced. These large kits are loaded with detail and make truly impressive airplane construction kits that honor the actual WWII aircraft. A few of these kits feature true to life "action" parts such as movable flying surfaces, sliding canopies, retractable landing gear and drop-able bombs.
The B-24 Liberator was built in greater quantities than any other U.S. bomber of World War 2. The prototype model was produced by the Consolidated Aircraft Corp. with the first XB-24 taking to the air on Dec. 29, 1939. It featured the revolutionary Davis wing design that enabled the B-24 to carry the same payload as its rival the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress but at a much greater speed and range. Over 18,000 Liberators were built during the war. Of all the European operations in which B-24s were involved, the initial raid on the Ploesti oil refinery in southern Romania on Aug. 1, 1943 was by far the most dramatic because it was heavily defended by anti-aircraft guns as well as squadrons of German Luftwaffe and Royal Rumanian Air Force Fighters. Of the 164 B-24s engaged, 53 were shot down or lost enroute, 23 were forced down and only 88 returned to base. Jerks Natural, the subject of this kit, was a Ploesti bomb group survivor.
