Looks great, and an excellent finish.

Any story behind the scheme? Having the silver framing seems odd as well.

Magnificent model, your NMF is incredible! :coolio:

Was hoping to model one of the Corsican Mitchells, probably "Ruthie".....Didn't think these birds had the fuselage gun-packs though? :shrug:

Not many topics but every one a scorcher Mr Steiner. :goodjob:

I remember being quite jealous of your P47 (IIRC) with its top notch NMF. Here you've done it again!

Lovely finish, and certainly a lesson to me in how to get a 1/72 scale build looking just a wee bit bigger than it actually is. :)

yes gunpacks are disputable, on kits-world decal guide they are shown, but I havent seen any photo with whole fuselage of these corsicians - so its a question :)

I've got the Bombshell Decals set for "Margaret Mary Rustin", "Stuff", "Briefing Time" & "Ruthie". There are good front end photos of all of them except "Stuff", none of them have gun-packs.....Which means exactly nothing in regard of "Ave Maria", but I thought it was worth mentioning. :nerd:

Still think yours is one of the nicest B-25s I've seen! :coolio:

Great work. I've always thought that the B25 was a handsome looking aeroplane and you've done it justice there. I think the preshading is perfectly weighted - looks just right to me.

Cheers,

Roger

Masterful build! The natural metal shading of various panels is just right for a realistic effect---

Looks great. I'm building the same plane in 1/32. No, it did not have the gun packs, sorry. Still looks good.
