    Category: 3
    Scale: 1:72
    Manufacturer: Minicraft
    Model Type: B-24J Liberator


    Knew i'd make deadline! Was a really fun build and many thanks to badbear for sending me the green dragon decal set, opposed ot the discolored one offered. Didnt do much weatherin as I wanted her to shine, but I did do a black panel wash.

    Errors: The green dragon offered did not seem to fit the surface I had to work with going off the decal sheet, aka too big. I took the swipe and removed the 'il' in "tail" as it would look out of place if on the front bottom window of the lib. Maybe the set I used wasnt intended for a minicraft kit but oh well.
