  1. B-25C/D Dinghy Pack (for Airfix Kit) 1:72 CMK by Special Hobby The new tool from Airfix is very welcome, The dinghy pack on the B-25 is housed in a prominent position on the top of the fuselage for easy access when ditching and this set provides the stowage space for the pack, the pack itself and the cover. It will make a nice addition to an aircraft displayed on the ground. All of the parts are very well cast with minimal clean up being needed. Review sample courtesy of

  3. Hi, here a model of a B-25 in RAF Dunsfold markings of 320 Squadron. Mr color paints and Aclad flat coat. Great Kit but fiddly. Have a great day.
  4. Hello All, Was there an OTU for the Boston and Mitchell bombers in England? If not, from where would replacement aircrew have come? TW
  5. 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
  6. Hi All, I'm trying to find some info on the 5 ex-NEIAF Mitchells that ended up at 3 PRU, 681/684 Sqn in India. I've managed to find a couple of b/w images of a Royal Blue one and a later PR Blue example but would like to know the camera and fuel tank fit on them... were they mounted in the bomb bay or fuselage, did the aircraft have a fuel tank in the bomb bay too, was the belly turret deleted and faired over? I hope you can help a bit Cheers Craig

  8. Hi Folk,s.this kit has sat on the shelf at my LMS for a very long time so with other projects reaching completion time I thought for something different.The kit's origins lie back in the late seventies/early eighties when Monogram in my opinion were releasing the best kit/s of the time with some lovely detailing, now they do tend to get overlooked by many due to the advances in tooling and newer releases making them look pre-historic by comparison! So with that in mind let,s give it a go.I note some AM decals are available for the J model for the RAAF for just a few quid so still unsure wh
  9. So, a friend referred me to this group and I thought I would share this build. I have been modeling for about two years and this is my first go with a 1/72 bird. I love the Mitchell and we have one locally. Here are a few wip shots of my bird. Hopefully the images load... Enjoy.
  10. B-25G "Shark Mouth" 1:48 Academy The B-25 Mitchell was one of the best known medium bombers of WWII, starting with the daring raid on Tokyo that began on an aircraft carrier of all places. Designed by North American, it was hastily pressed into service at the beginning of America's involvement with WWII with well over six thousand airframes constructed, and many variants fighting in all theatres of the Second World War. The B-25G was sometimes referred to as the Strafer, as it was heavily modified in the shortened nose to mount a large 75mm cannon, in a similar fashion to that mounted in
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Well She is finished. Big Bad Bonnie was the first B-25 i ever saw flying. Back in the early 80s at Stapleford in Essex. When Kitsworld produced the decals i new i had to build one. This one came up on ebay for a very good price so i snapped it up. The build went OK but it was one of those models where i had bad luck along the way. First of all i accidently poked the seats out after the model was already finished. This meant i had to get them back in through the turret opening , then the dog got hold of the nose glazing and cracked it. Luckily my friend had a spare one , then one of the scrat
  15. Hi, It happend, that majority of not-posted yet models are American machines. Moreover - they are rather typical. Today I would like to present model of North American B25H-1 Mitchell in markings of 498 Squadron 354 Group, 5th Army, New Guinea, 1944. Individual name of machine "Clana Louise" In time when I made it, the Italeri was the best kit of B25, no Hasegawa kit was issued yet. It was about 2000. Free hand painting with brush of nose art and individual name. Comments welcome Regards Jerzy -Wojtek
  16. The wee fella had been looking for a calendar with pictures of planes on it for me (he's a great wee bloke) and bought me the Warbirds 2015 calendar. The pic for February is below. The caption says it's a "North American B25 Mitchell". Now I'm no expert on WW2 American planes but I'm pretty sure the pic isn't that of a B25 Mitchell... Unless it's some kind of early prototype. The fuselage shape is wrong, wings are in the wrong place, the fins are the wrong shape, nacelles and props are wrong etc etc etc. Can anyone shed some light on what the plane in the picture actually is?
  17. Hi! This is Hasegawas B-25H finished in Tamiya colors. I used Eduard photoetch for interior details, and Quickboost cowlings. A bit green OD, but I pretend this is the ANA 613 color Any comments appreciated Best regards Rune Haugen Norway
  18. North American B-25H Mitchell 1:32 HK Models History The B-25G (NA-96) was the first version of the Mitchell to introduce the 75-mm cannon. It was intended for use in anti-shipping strikes in the South Pacific. In the B-25G, a standard 75mm Army M4 cannon was mounted to fire forward through the nose. This gun was a revision of the famous French 75 of World War I. The basic concept had been found to be feasible via a series of experiments on a converted Douglas B-18A Bolo. However, since the effects of the heavy muzzle blast on the nose structure of the Mitchell were unknown, a complet

  20. North American B-25J Mitchell. Red Bull Revell 1:48 History The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theatre of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended, and saw service across four decades. The B-25 was named in honour of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. By the end of its production, nearly 10,000 B-25s in numerous models had been built. These included a few limited variations, such as the United States Nav

  22. B-25H/J Wheels (for HK Models) 1:32 Eduard Brassin (632014) The HK Mitchell is a big beast, and its kit wheels whilst adequate for most could be improved upon with resin replacements, partly because of the lack of mating seam around the circumference of each wheels, but also because of the extra detail and undercuts possible with resin casting. The set arrives in one of Eduard's familiar Brassin cardboard boxes, and once you remove the foam packaging you find three bags of resin parts, a sheet of yellow kabuki style masking material, and an instruction sheet. There are two main wheels,
  23. 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
  24. Anybody know when it's due in UK ? Thought it was September but can't see it on Wonderlands site
  25. The Lauridsen collection is a growing airworthy collection of classic types that is currently based at Buckeye Municipal Airport in Arizona. It's planned to move the collection to a new purpose built facility at Gila Bend Municipal Airport shortly. During my visit there wasn't another sole in sight, no gates or barriers either. The Invader greats visitors as they arrive and isn't part of the collection so I guess it'll be staying at Buckeye when everything else moves. There's also an Avenger present but this was locked away in the hanger so it wasn't possible to get any shots. As a bonus wh
