AF1-0157 B-24D Liberator 1/72 Die Cast Model NEW TOOL! "Wongo Wongo,” 512th BS, 376th, 9th AF, 1943.Wingspan 12'.6". On August 1, 1943, the Allies launched Operation Tidal Wave – a strategic bombing mission over Nazi-occupied territory. A total of 176 B-24 Liberators set out to attack oil refineries at Ploesti, Romania, with an impressive 167 (or 94%) of them hitting their target! Unfortunately, however, 54 of these aircraft were lost over Ploesti, and another three at sea. One devastating loss included a B-24D nicknamed “Wongo Wongo,” which lost control and crashed into the Mediterranean on its way to the oil refineries, killing all 10 crewmen – brave members of the 512th Bomber Squadron. In recognition of the airmen’s valiant efforts, a number of decorations were awarded including five Medals of Honor and a Presidential Unit Citation to all five USAAF bomb groups involved: 44th, 93rd, and 389th from the 8th Air Force; and 98th and 376th from the 9th Air Force. This die cast collectible includes some of the industry’s most premium features such as authentic markings, realistic weaponry (where applicable), a glazed canopy, a well-appointed interior, and an all-metal display stand.
