    1./ Plane LB-30 LB- 30 B
    under ID numbers ; 32 LO 24 , 32 B 1003 and 32 B 1015 .

    Mike, I think I might have some scale drawings of a Liberator II, and possibly some photos (in a book) of RAF MkII's. It might take some time to find them though.
    By the way, the cutaway in Micdrow's 'siggy' is a Boeing B17G Flying Fortress!

    Hi Mike, Terry is correct, my signature is of a B-17G made for me by GrauGeist. The complete picture is this.

    You need a book called, Lion Rampant and Winged. Go to a web site called SCRAN type in Liberator and McIntyre. You will probably know of the book Accident. This book has been refuted. SAL did the mod for the nosewheel to stop it collapsing. One of the Indian Air Force Liberators,on the way to canada, had a nosewheel collapse at Prestwick and SAL were able to repair it. I know that teh Morris furniture company worked closely with SAL in replacing all redundant metal with wood. They did the nose of the Liberator express and passed the info onto the americans. For many years a Morris nose languished in a hangar but as far as I am aware it was burned along with a Walrus in 1960.
