The B-24 that crashed was a B-24 J. This is a B-24 D, an older model.

The framing has been completed except for the canopy side windows.

I have decided to glue the tail turret since I won’t be moving it sideways.
I have not decided yet if I was going to paint the inside of the model so I just assembled it with masking tape to get an idea of the finished built.
Then taking it apart again to ponder on my next move.
