B-24D 514th Bomb Squadron, 376th Bomb Group (HA9101)


B-24D Liberator 376th Bomb Group, 514th Bomb Sqn., 1/144 scale die cast by Hobby Master. General Background
The B-24 was the most produced American bomber in WWII. The demand was so great that Consolidated was unable to keep up so contracts were awarded to Douglas, Ford and North American. The D variant became the most numerous with 2,698. The design of the B-24 allowed it to carry the same payload as the Boeing B-17 and do it faster and further. Compared to the sleek look of the B-17 the B-24 looked awkward and B-17 crews referred to it as "the crate the B-17 was shipped in"
