    This ancient Revell model re-release is good for nostalgic value only. The molds were not cleaned up very well; lots of flash. The decals are copies of the originals: Yawn. There are 1/72 scale models of this 1/92 scale B-24 that are much better for a similar price. This one is overpriced; even deeply discounted. I am a big fan of what Atlantis is doing in bringing back the oldies. Nostalgia can be fun … but charging premium prices for really old technology is not the best way to go. They could do much, much better.

    Looks like a good model haven’t put it together yet. Arrived in good shape!

    It took a lot of adjusting with an xacto knife to get pieces to fit together properly.
    Maybe the dies they use for injection molding are getting old because there was a lot of extra material that needed to be shaved off. In the end I was able to get a pretty nice model but with a lot of extra effort. If my dad hasn’t flown in a b24 in WWII I would have sent it back.

    This neat kit is a re-issue by Atlantic of an older Revell model. As others have mentioned the molds show their age, and there is a fair amount of flashing to be removed. However, it is not excessive. Also, at the other extreme the right vertical stabilizer is not fully molded, giving it a scalloped edge. (For a great review and tips on how to fix this, look up the Dem Brudders overview of this kit.) Once cleaned up fit was excellent for nearly all parts, and I did not have to trim anything to fit. I actually purchased this kit to fill a gap in a simple snap-together bomber set I had already bought, “InAir Smithsonian E-Z Build 3pc Set – B-17 Green Flying Fortress, B-29 Superfortress & B-25 Mitchell”. I constructed this B-25 gear-down to match those other models. In size (though not scale) it is a bit bigger than the rest of my set, but at 1:94 was the best size match I could find. Note that the scales of all the models in my set are different, but they are all roughly the same size (12-14″) which makes an aesthetic display atop my World War II bookshelf. I saved myself a lot of work by deciding that the desert tan the model comes molded in was close enough to an actual field color, and also felt it added some color variety to the rest of my green or silver set. I only applied the star-and-bar decals, and skipped the (non-historic) Buffalo Bill emblems. Note that the display stand pictured is NOT the included stand, but one that I swapped in to match the rest of my bomber set. Overall, this is a great little kit and worth the price. With this addition, I now have a nice full set of American bombers.

  5. One Opinion

    Not a perfect kit but great for those of us who built the original.

    Gave it as a Christmas present. Kid said it was his favorite gift. Put all other gifts aside and started to put this plane together.

  7. Cancelled for Non-Performance

    I bought this model as a Christmas gift for my father. As a kid, he use to build these types of model planes so I thought it would a good way for him to do something with his time during Covid and the winter months. He couldn’t wait to open the box to start building. Last time I was home, he had all the pieces laid out as he plots his strategy. I am very happy with this model because it represents an era when he was young boy. My dad is going to be 90 next month and I am always looking for ways to keep his mind sharp and building models helps his thinking and thought processes. Plus, he loves anything that deals with WWII. Thank you.

    If you built this as a child and want to relive the experience or want a relatively inexpensive B-24 model, this is a great deal.

    I did it for both.

    The quality is OK, and the build not really that difficult. The kit really benefits from knowing how to smooth seams and fill joints with putty, and it can easily be a first step moving from glue it together and paint with a brush modeling to painting with an airbrush with ‘massaging away’ the bad joints with putty and a file.

    However, I’m sure there are better kits in standard scales out there. For example, this is not the B-24/B-17 model version with a fully working ball turret assembly from other, similar vintage models

    However, for value, if consistent scale is not an issue, this is a relatively nice model.

    Yeah, it used to cost only 10% of the asking price, but that’s the market, today. That older price used to get you almost 10 gallons of gas, so the difference isn’t that wallet busting.
