Sometimes you come across a model kit or a detail set and you just think: "Wow, what an amazing product!" It is definitely the case with Eduard's 1:48 scale B-24 Bomb bay set which is destined to the Revell/Monogram kits.

This makes me regret not picking up a copy of the kit for 10 bucks at a flea market several years ago! For decades virtually no AM for this beast and now all of this- I'm boggled. maybe they'll be inspired to add a bomb bay set for the B-17...

Cheers!

It was the first kit I built coming back to the hobby, and wouldn't mind doing it again, especially with all the AM stuff. Is Revell or Monogram going to reissue the kit?

The Monogram 1/48 B-24D is available at Squadron for $21.99, Monogram 1/48 B-17G $31.46, Revell Germany 1/48 B-17F $29.99 both available at Squadron. I wouldn't be surprised that in a few years if Monogram re-releases the B-24J 1/48.
