 The recently HobbyMaster Ju-52 has been well received due to its excellent detailing and reasonable pricing, although strangely to-date no military editions have been released. So it was strange to see on the Hobby Master Collector site a new B-24D combat release. Although B-24s have been available in many q/q44 plastic kit formats before, I think this is the first to be subject to this level of quality. It will be interesting to see if more are forthcoming, there are plenty of schemes to choose from!?
