B-24D Rear Interior
Made to enhance the level of detail of the old but still very good 1:48 scale Revell/Monogram kit, Eduard's B-24D Rear Interior set comes in the usual plastic pouch of the Czech Manufacturer. The set is composed of two PE frets which are protected by two cardboard sheets to prevent them from damage. An A4 size construction notice is included as well. The set is destined to the rear section of the fuselage: the two lateral gunner positions and the rear turret.
Fret 1 is composed of 53 parts and fret 2 of 29 parts. The machine guns receive new gun barrels and new details which will make a lot of difference when compared with the original plastic versions. The lateral gunner positions are completely reworked with a new floor, armor plates, ammunition box racks, ammunition belts, ammunition belt rail guides, ammunition boxes etc... Once assembled, this area will look really impressive. Some scratchbuilding will be necessary though, because the machine gun mounts aren't provided. Eduard shows how to do them with plastic rods in the instructions.
The instructions are printed in black & white on an A4 sheet folded so to constitute a small 4 pages booklet. The construction drawings are easy to follow.
Once fitted inside the fuselage of the old Revell/Monogram B-24J model, Eduard's 1:48 scale B-24J Rear Interior set will simply look amazing through the windows of the lateral gunners. It is nice to see that the Czech manufacturer doing photo etched upgrade sets for older models as these really benefit a lot from the inclusion of the new metal parts. A similar reference is already available for theB-24J variant:
