UPDATE...
on the BOAC LB-30 AL507 Liberator released a couple of weeks ago.

A new updated kit has been uploaded to the shops...as a replacement.
If you bought this kit, please go get the replacement.

See...when I started work on this model, I was aware that the LB-30 needed earlier style Pratt & Whitney engines.
I had already created a set of 1830-33 non supercharged engines for my first LB30 model, back in 2010,
so I already knew all about this.

LB30 had R-1830-33 Radial Engines...and it wasn't until the B24C and B-24D that the planes were re-equipped
with more powerful Turbo Supercharged R-1830-41 and R-1830-43 engines.  The cowling shapes are obvious.




So, this is one of the first things I did for this new LB30 kit.
(I actually created a whole new set of drawings and parts for this aircraft...all new engine nacelles.)

But since I did not have a kit started at that point, I put the new engine artwork aside
and totally forgot about it.  I built the new LB30 kit from my basic B-24D template and
completely forgot to go back and swap out the engines and their related parts. 
(Even the instructions needed to be updated!)

Yesterday I was working on something unrelated and it hit me.
I checked the kit and sure enough ...there was my mistake.

So, I just finished modifying the kit, swapping out the parts, updating the instructions
and uploading the new file.  Not only are the parts different, but the page layouts are
different too.

Anyone who bought this kit (from ecardmodels) can go download it again, and get the updated version.
So sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Dave.  Great work as usual.  For an interesting Canadian version, how about the first "Canadian Air Force One" at:

http://ottawastart.blogspot.ca/2014/01/andrew-king-canadas-first-air-force-one.html

Patrick Martin's book "Royal Canadian Air Force - Aircraft Finish and Markings 1947-1968" shows a photo of her on page 8 in 1946 markings, noting that the markings were converted with the Type 1 red/blue roundel and full titles on the upper fuselage (and flag on the nose) before retiring in 1948.

Keep up the great work  ;D.

Regards,
John

yes, great idea!

I will definitely add that to the list as a future project.
