I already got this kit some weeks ago for the original price, but I couldn't say "no" to this offer, could I?

Got it for rather less than RRP from the MJR Facebook group, still quite a lot though, but there's a lot in the box. I'll do an in-box view some time this week.

I am in the fortunate position of being relatively free of family responsibilities - they're all grown up and working - so stuff like this is now within my reach.

There is also the option of buying the Eduard mouldings as overtrees, but that would still leave you with finding a suitable B-24 kit and decals. You might be able to save on a Hasegawa B-24 by going for one of the glass nose Academy kits.

Il keep my eyes on eBay. These Eduard special edition kits tend to get discounted quite heavily after the initial sales rush, I'll not give up hope just yet!

So does it include resin and piles of PE?

Del, you get the Hasegawa B-24, one clear and one grey plastic runner by Eduard that contains all the necessary bits to correctly portray a Brit GR Liberator, including props,turrets, radomes etc, a set of canopy masks, PE frets, a Liberator monograph style book and an A2 size print of the box art on quality art paper. The instructions are an A2 pamphlet printed on glossy paper that include comprehensive decal/painting instructions for the thirteen options offered on the decal sheet. The PE provided is actually quite modest, but the Hasegawa base kit is very comprehensive in its own right and needs very little improvement. If you're looking to buy a Hasegawa B-24 you'll find that unless you can do deal buying direct from Japan, it will likely cost almost as much as (in some cases more than) this Eduard set.

Thanks Paul, the idea that I may buy one is a total no, no, as not only has it got WW-2 props but it's got four of the buggers. :rolf :rolf

Yes, a Leigh light is included on the Eduard runners.

In that case I may see if I can just get the over trees, I've got decals from a Canadian firm
