You are all very kind. Thank you.


I have been giving great thought to the engines.

How about a very brief update.

The interior of the Revell 1/48 B-24D is near complete. Just a couple of tidy up type of things to do. I have also finished off the wings. Still a ways to go but closer to the end than the beginning at this point.





And now a bit of news. Beginning this update pictures will be minimal. I spoke at length to a magazine editor recently and he is interested in this build. I am allowed to show teasers but not the whole shooting match. I agreed to this and am honored he likes my work.

All comments, critiques, and criticism encouraged.

Joe,
I can only speak for myself and not others. I'm disappointed that you won't be posting as you've been doing, but rather just teasers since you'll be doing a magazine article as your main focus.

You are very kind. Thank you.

You will see more just not detailed pictures. Soon I hope.

Just a brief update on the 1/48 Revell B-24D.

The fuselage is closed and the wings are there but not glued, maybe not at all. Only real issues have been with the tail. I have split the lower section four times and the upper twice.





More to come.

All comments, critiques, and criticism are encouraged.
