    Hi all
    I've been lurking around for a while and thought I'd stop by and say hello..... Hello!!
    About me, erm I'm a British ex-pat living in NZ my main interest is the B-24 Liberator in RAF and Commonwealth use. I've run a website about this subject for over 10 years now, links

    I got back in to modelling about a year ago after a long break and have been displaying some stuff on another forum. This forum's not as active as this one but it is friendly and does lack the usual rivet and bolt counters evident in a lot of forums. Maglar says you're a good bunch so I thought I'd make myself known :D
    Gary or Gaz (I don't mind which)

    Hi V2 thanks for the photo do you mind if I use it on my site?

    Serial Number: KH152
    Aircraft Mk Type Mk VI Liberator
    Squadrons: 34 SAAF
    Details: Missing (Warsaw) 17.10.44

    KH152 was shot down whilst its crew were making a scond attempt to deliver supplies to Polish reistance fighters in the Warsaw area. Whilst flying at a height of 11000 feet about 20 miles north-east of Krakow, the aircraft was attacked by a night-fighter its controls were badly damaged and fuel tanks set on fire.

    Cheers
    Gary

    Hello Gary, and welcome from the Old Country! I'll send you a PM in a couple of days - you might be able to help me in helping another member searching for Lib MkII info.
    BTW, nice pics Dominik.
