cdw My life flashes before my eyes and it mostly my life flashing before my eyes!!! The 1/144 scale census and message board: http://144scalelist.freewebpage.org/index.html
I thought I would bump up this old post as I have the same question.
Any more recent current suggestions on where I might find a bomber crew?
I plan on building a diorama with the crew and a 1/48 B24. My uncle was a gunner on a B24 during WW2.
Teknics on ebay is a good bet.Shown here is : Prieser , Teknics , Jaguar , Reheat , Eduard , Dartmoor , Monogram , Propaganda , ICM , CMK , Verlinden , Gasoline , Tarmac , Legend .
The 1/48 B-17 kits have crewmen in gunners positions. I have also seen p/e kits coming out for the 1/48 Libby
Thank you ,Krow113
I'll second the suggestion to try eBay now, and I mean, right now. I have a couple of Verlinden searches, filtered by scale, and there are a couple of sellers who have the Verlinden sets on a steady basis.
You'll find some of the other manufacturers listed in this thread, too.
Beyond that, I'd visit some of the dealers listed here, too, such as Squadron and Eduard.
As for the Monogram crew, it was originally added for the Visible B-17, I think, and included in the Pro-Modeler boxing. You might be able to find someone here or in some of the other airplane modeler forums who might have them and would be willing to part with them.
Hope that helps!
