Hello, guys.
I’ll construct this colorful B-24.
I have no decals, so I’ll paint the marks.

Here’s a little inspiration from an old master:

It should be a great project. Good luck.

I’ve painted the cockpit and constructed the hull.

There were gaps between wings and engine cowls, so I used puttey.

The canopy pattern looked detailed, so I use masking seats.
It made masking work easy and quick.

That photo’s from a site that has a collection of Monogram box art dioramas he built but there are at least 3 photos of portions of the same diorama in his “How to build DIORAMAS” (Kalmbach, 1980). All round excellent book packed with very well explained and illustrated techniques. If you don’t have it tucked away somewhere, it readily available through the used book market and highly recommended.
