Convair PB4Y-2/P4Y-2 Privateer. Naval Fighters 93. Book by Nicholas A. Veronico and Steve Ginter.  The Consolidated PB4Y-2 Privateer was a World War II and Korean War era patrol bomber of the United States Navy derived from the Consolidated B-24 Liberator. The Navy had been using unmodified B-24s as the PB4Y-1 Liberator, and the type was considered very successful. A fully navalized design was desired, and Consolidated developed a dedicated long-range patrol bomber in 1943, designated PB4Y-2 Privateer. In 1951, the series was redesignated P4Y-2 Privateer. A further change occurred in October 1962 when remaining Navy Privateers (all having previously been converted to drone configuration as P4Y-2K) were redesignated QP-4B. Amply illustrated with b/w and color photos, diagrams and data tables. Also includes modeler's review section describing kits past and present; 240 pages.
