B-24J Inside & Out

The Collings Foundation B-24J
The Collings Foundation keeps a B-24J airworthy and tours the country, educating the public and honoring the veterans. This walkaround / climbthrough revels detail few have seen.

I will let the pictures speak their 1,000s of words. A few notable items are:
    Many "interior greens", including the Dark Bronze Green used by Consolidated Aircraft.
    Airframe festooned with raised rivets
    "Unrealistic" gaps between the empennage and fuselage
    "Unrealistic" gaps between the nacelles and wings
    Metal tube ammo guide tracks to the tail turret
    A relief tube hanging from a bulkhead between the waist guns and tail
    Oxidization of even the modern exterior paint
    Colors of the turbo-supercharger and exhaust
    Hamilton Standard Propeller decal
I hope these images will be useful to modelers and restoration groups.

About Frederick Boucher (JPTRR)
FROM: TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
