Default B-24 H or J

I'm helping a fellow modeler with a B-24 project. In almost every kit, they list it as a D model. His grandfather flew the H and J models(Sittin' Pretty and the Tough Titty). He'd really like to match one of those planes(I'm building the nose art and other makings for him in vinyl, one of the advantages to owning a graphics business and having a really nice plotter ) My question is, what were the significant differences, and can any of the available kits be modified to be an H or J model?

The Jack Stafford B-24 kit includes drawings on how to modify the kit into a J model. The big difference is in the nose. You have to make it about an inch longer and basicly use a tail turret to make a new nose turret. You can check the kit out at www.JSModels.com

I'm sure you already have photos to guide you. Thought I would include these photos of the 374th Bomb Squdron's 'Settin Pretty' which show the nose turret, as well as the nose art.
