Good looking Liberator kit, and nice to see Hasegawa molded both types of propeller. Take your time, lots of bits to this one!!

As I say, easy and pleasure to build. Maybe a number of parts look frustrating but work steps is easy and parts match perfectly!

Pretty sure your fuselage colors are right for the airplane you're building. The rear of the airplane varied in primer color depending on when it was built and where. Most of the earlier Libs were in the zinc yellow like you've done. If you're building with bomb doors open, paint the bays in the same green as the front.

Thanks for the info! I will build it with bomb bay closed and Eduard suggest grey color for this area, so that was not correct

Possibly it could be grey, the Liberator's interior colors alone could fill a small book.....

This slot in nose is excellent for lead (but not that much)

Pack the engine nacelles with as much weight as you can, also behind the engine where it attaches if there is room.
