Description

This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.

Hasegawa hasn't released a four-engine bomber since their B-17 kits, but they've come a long way in the intervening decades! We think it's safe to say you can put those old Airfix and Matchbox kits up in the attic, as they have been handily trumped by this release. We are treated to a well-done cockpit interior, with pilot, navigator and radioman stations, detailed landing gear with pre-weighted tires, optional De Havilland or Hamilton propellers, a full bomb load of 200-pounders and 4,000-lb. H.C. MkII bombs, an optional radar assembly for the belly, and optional clear wingtip light parts. Alignment during assembly is aided by pass-through spars for the wings and tailplanes, which will also serve to strengthen the completed model. Decals are for two aircraft from 467 Squadron: R5868 PO S in two variations, one from May '44 as well as after its refit/rebuild in the late summer of that year, and ED539 PO V in the summer of 1943.
