Captured B-24 Liberators Luftwaffe Insignia Paint Mask Set 1/32

Suggested scale: 1/32

Suggested kit: Hobby Boss B-24J Liberator

Re-usable die-cut mask set – Three versions included

The set includes two sheets of pre-cut masks (shown in the picture). The masks are made from thin masking tape, which is easy to be peeled off and doesn’t leave any stains. The tape is tested on clear and painted model too. If carefully removed after painting, they can be used over and over again. It is flexible and easily applied over curved surfaces. Semi-transparent for easy and accurate placing.

Captured B-24 Liberators

were used by the Germans altogether with Mustangs, Thunderbolts, B-17s, Lancasters and other aircraft in various roles. B-24 Liberators used by Luftwaffe were several different variants, some of them captured due to forced landings made by the Allied crews on German-controlled territories. Those aircraft were painted in different schemes, however very little information remains as of today. The set features three of the popular B-24 Liberator options, but there is probably more information on the subject, that is hard, but not impossible to be found.

Luftwaffe Insignia

Since decals have carrier film and cannot be weathered with enough realism, this set provides an alternative approach to solving that problem. Application of paint instead of decals present you with the option to chip the paint and alter the colors of the insignia and numbers, as well as to avoid decals carrier film seen on the decal. Due to the enormous size of the B-24 Liberator in 32nd scale, this is the best method for markings application. Luftwaffe insignia included in this set is based on the very few pictures available on the web. Additional research is advisable in order to recreate good replica of the captured Liberators. Dark spots on the aircraft cover the original Allied insignia.

Kampfgeschwader 200 (KG 200)

was a Luftwaffe special operations unit during the WWII. Germans used various airplanes to make reconnaissance flights, especially long-range ones and for that purpose they used captured B-17s and B-24 Liberators. There are some claims that Liberators were used to infiltrate Allied bomber formations, as well as in recce-missions deep behind enemy lines. Some of the aircraft used were destroyed by the Germans themselves when they fled the airport that they were using. To this day, information about Kampfgeschwader KG 200 remains sparse.
