.:Eduard:. Liberator GR Mk.III and GR Mk.V „Riders in the Sky“ #sprues

Limited Edition kit of WWII four-engine bomber aircraft, the Liberator GR Mk.III and GR Mk.V „Riders in the Sky“, in 1/72 scale. This is focused on Liberators flown by RAF Coastal Command in WWII. Two unique plastic sprues designed by Eduard, with parts needed for conversion from B-24 to Liberator GR Mk.III and GR Mk.V, along with a complete set of sprues by Hasegawa.
The photographic book, which tells the story of Coastal Command Liberators GR Mk.III & V, with a special focus on No. 311 Squadron RAF, will be a part of the kit.
The kit will be available at the Eduard Store from March 1, 2018 under cat. no. 2121.

Conversion parts from Eduard’s tools, consist of the following:
- A-6A rear turret Consolidated 5800-3
- Boulton-Paul Type E Mk.II rear turret early type/ late type
- Dumbo chin radome
- Waist gunner windows (Nash and Thompson Type FN55 mount)
- Leigh Light (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leigh_Light)
- rocket projectors with unguided rocket projectiles
- Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propellers with narrow blades
To illustrate the differences and use of each type of turret and other conversion parts, we are going to prepare a separate post.
