  1. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa B-25J in colors of the Soviet Air Force (VVS) in 1945. Built with addition of PART photo-etch and CMK resin parts. Painted with Gunze/Mr.Hobby acrylics. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thank you for your interest in this topic. Bes
  2. Hi, indeed, the model is already finished, these are just a few pictures of some parts of the kit during the build. This is the old Airfix 1/72 B-25J from 1964. Sorry for the very poor quality of the photos. First, the entire surface of the kit was sanded to remove the oversized rivets. Then an ordinary scribing tool was used to scribe all panel lines. The original cockpit floor of the kit was discarded and a new floor was made, as well as the nose floor (including the "tunnel" that connects the nose with the cockpit). Some structural detail was added to the sidewalls, including se
  3. The former WingScale XL 1/32nd North American B-25J Mitchell kit project ( http://www.hyperscale.com/2011/galleries/b25j32jv_1.htm ) will be edited by HK Models.

  4. The ancient Crown/Revell/Minicraft kit, with old Microscale decals. Kit national insignia was useless, so modified some from an old 1/72 F-5A jet sheet. This is a rather crude kit, but the basic shape is OK. Modified the nose, reworked the awful props, tried to make something of the cowlings, added guitar string guns. Some have complained that the dihedral is too much... hard to correct though. I think it does look like a B-25 now though, especially from "far away." And in this size, just about everything is far away: that's a dime on the base. https://photos.app.goo
  5. B-25 Mitchell Wheels 1:72 Eduard Brassin for Airfix & Hasegawa Kits For the Airfix Kit & Hasegawa Kits. This set contains the 2 main wheels and the nose wheel. They are direct replacements for the kit parts. Also included (not shown) is a full set of masks for the wheels. Airfix (672205) Hasegawa (672206) Review samples courtesy of
  6. Hi all, Just noticed that Italeri are about to re-release the Accurate Miniatures 1/48 B-25G and noticed in their sprue shots that it seems to contain at least most of the parts to complete it as a B-25C, including the clear parts and was wondering if anyone has the original release or the Academy one and can confirm if these parts are there and that a glass nosed C can be built from this kit. Thanks in advance. Craig.
  7. Well after having watched all the excellent builds on here and having acquired a couple of Airfix's excellent new B-25's and having also finished my Harrier for the Hawker GB I thought it was only right that I finally join in with a Mitchell of my own. I am still unsure as to which scheme she will be finished in, I have the new Xtradecal sheet which has some very nice schemes on it and one of my reference books comes with decals for several options including a B-25C or two which were based in the Pacific. What I would really like to do is a Soviet one in temporary winter scheme but findin
  8. Hi all, Here is my latest completed model, its Airfix's excellent new 1/72 B-25 C/D built as an aircraft operated by the 13th Guards Long Range Aviation Regiment and sporting a temporary Winter camo scheme applied over the standard Olive Drab over Neutral Grey that the aircraft was delivered in. Not much to say about the build as it was a very smooth process and I didn't have any issues at all and can heartily recommend this kit to anyone who has an interest in this aircraft, and I usually build in 1/48 scale. Anyway here are the pics, sorry but there are rather a lot of them
  9. I will be building a PBJ (Patrol Bomber North American) Mitchell for the GB. If I can fine enough markings to replicate them, I will build a Mitchell from VMB-614, my Father-in-Laws group. Although they were the last unit PBJ transfer to theater in WWII, he did spend his entire flying career in the Mitchell as a radio operator/gunner. VMB-614 spent a large amount of it's time stateside working out kinks for the units already transferred to the front. As such he flew in the PBJ with all the different radar positions (4 different spots, I believe), working ou
  10. B-25 Update sets & masks 1:72 Eduard for Airfix Kit The new Airfix B-25 is a cracker of a kit, however that has not stopped Eduard from wanting to add their own brand of magic to the kit. Update Set (73628) Inside there are two frets, one coloured and one not. The coloured parts are mainly for the cockpit including a new instrument panel, sides panels, and various levers. Also seatbelts for the front seats, and parts for the seats themselves. There are parts for the nose including ammo boxes and feed chutes for the nose gun, and rear gun

  12. Hi again folks, I have been following all the fab builds in the Gb with much interest and with the call for a final push to close the GB with a bang, and coupled with the extended finish line i felt the need to drop everything else (model wise) and get one more done before full time. With the brand spanking new Airfix B-25 hitting the shelves as we speak i thought now is as good a time as any to get my Matchbox one built. I anticipate a few of these will appear on e-bay or second hand dealers as people "upgrade" to the new all singing and dancing version. So
  13. Hello, this is an Airfix B-25J with Russian insignia. The assembly is in the "work in progress" section. Thanks for watching! And a image of the real aircraft: Cheers!
  14. A couple I recently finished... If I can only find the wing light covers for the PBJ the that I put somewhere so I would not lose them. Go figure...
  15. So these are my completed entry's for the MTO GB, a thoroughly enjoyable group build full of fantastic and inspiring builds.... pop along and have a look! This was supposed to be a triple build, however life got a little in the way so my time was shortened.... I really wanted to post a topic on Christmas day called "we three twins" witty arn't I! Any way I digress.... here is a link to the wip for more info So first up for your festive perusal is a SAAF b-26 marauder that flew from Italy with no 2 squadron. The transfers are from the Xtradecals sheet "med
  16. This group build has been my main focus for this year and I have given it a lot of thought. I love the MTO and everything about it, it's probably the part of the war I read/know most about, so this GB was always going to be a tough decision! However I have avoided ny natural impulses to jump to malta with a trio of blue spits and gone for something I don't do often. I have always liked the following three AC's for their agressive and powerful looks, it must be the big radials strapped to the wings! They looks very American in my eyes, or a least how I see American aircraft looking, fast and
  17. While some of you already noticed in my recent Herc post, I also got a real treat last summer. We had a visit for one week by bombers from the Commemorative Air Force. B-17G Sentimental Journey. I saw her the last time she was in Winnipeg. Though that was almost twenty years ago! Unlike me, the B-17 does not look a day older. And for her first time in The 'Peg, B-25J Mitchell: Maid in the Shade. This B-17 arrived in the PTO too late to see action and was used largely for photo mapping after hostilities had ended. The B-25 however was a real honour to see. She is a genuine combat veteran. She
  18. This will be my first "big" project. Reason being, I know this kit has some shortcomings that will need to be dealt with. My first impressions upon opening the kit was the rivets all over the wings and fuselage, and apart from the control surfaces, lack of any kind of panel lines. My first task will be to sand off most of the rivets (there's a profile of the plane in the Squadron Signal book showing panel lines and rivets). Most rivets on the plane would be flushed, but I will present them like conventional domed rivets. Once done I will attempt to scribe the panel lines myself (first t
  19. Hi everyone, I wanted to do a project which required a lot of scratch build to compare to the other offerings (Hasegawa etc.). The Airfix kit was perfect for this since it was, 1. bare basic and, 2, extremely inaccurate. I've attempted to fix some of these inaccuracies (not all) to produce a result that is comparable to the better B-25 kits out there. In the end, I don't think I achieved this result. I did however enjoy it, and did end up with a result that an OOB Airfix B-25 cannot compare to. I also learned a lot of new skills and have already started applying what I have learned on my late
  20. With the 2015 show just around the corner I thought I better pull my finger out and post some of my 2014 shots!

  21. Hi all, I am considering building a B-25 Mitchell and would like to finish it as an aircraft that was based in either North Africa or the Mediterranean. Whilst looking through my references and trawling the internet I keep coming across profiles of aircraft which are painted in a disruptive upper surface camo of sand and green which I really like, the only problem is that I cannot find a single photograph to back any of these schemes up and I don't want to build something in a spurious scheme. I was wondering if any of you could either point me in the right direction or disprove these schem
  22. Anyone who missed the HK's B-25 Mitchell "Glass Nose" ? Will be pleased to know that they are reissuing this kit in October according to their website hk-models.de Google can do a translation into English on this site also. Great News especially for me because I got a real itch to build this and the glass nose is the one I wanted before Phil
  23. Hi everyone, here are some shots from the excellent Lyon Air Museum in Orange County. It's a great collection of classic aircraft, military vehicles and classic cars, and they all work!

  25. Last seen when I was about 13 and left a lasting impression - both for the flying - and the Mitchell. Utterly brilliant - has cheered me up after some sad news earlier today... Great inspiration for that HK Models B-25 kit http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=PUazQ60utI0 Enjoy! Iain
