$ 129.99

1:72 Scale  Metal Diecast – Consolidated B-24 (B-24D) Liberator USAAF "Wongo Wongo" – Length: 10.75"  Wingspan:18.25”


This B-24 model has various gun positions, with gun barrels sticking out, some of them can move. One has to be very careful while handling the model or even when looking to place it to rest as it has gun barrels sticking out everywhere and can be easily bent or damaged.


The model includes two pieces to cover the bomb bay, one in the normal closed position and one in the opened position showing the bombs inside.


Two sets of landing gears are included, one for the extended position and one for the retracted position.


The model includes a metal stand where the model can be attached for display.  The stand is made entirely of metal, it is very sturdy and it is actually held together by a nut/screw assembly. 


The photos don't really make justice to how impressive this model really is, at 1/72 scale this model measures just about 11 inches long and has a wingspan of about 18 inches wide.


The maker of the model, Air Force 1, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very crisp and one can see the little dots that represent the rivets holding down the panels.


This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.


The box is 14 inches long by 14 inches wide by 4 inches high.
