This Die-cast metal airplane model comes in 1:163 scale with plastic stand and is approximately 5 1/8 inches long with 8 1/4 inch wingspan.

B-24D Liberator S/N 42-72843 "Strawberry Bitch" is on display indoors in the World War II Gallery of the Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton, Ohio, near Wright-Patterson AFB.

 

It was assembled at the Consolidated plant in San Diego, and later ferried to Europe to join the 9th Air Force in Cairo, Egypt. Daniel Rice was the pilot whose crew accepted delivery of the new B-24, ferried her overseas, and delivered her to the 376th Heavy Bombardment Group.

 

The bomber then flew over 50 combat missions from North Africa during September of 1943 thru June of 1944 with the 512th Bomb Squadron of the 376th BG. It took part in and survived the Ploesti oil refinery raid of August, 1943.

 

Each aircraft of the 376th was assigned a Recall Code (RCL), painted on its nose and vertical tail. Strawberry Bitch was assigned RCL 24.

 

The B-24 is painted pink desert camouflage as it was during its World War II campaigns in North Africa.
