1/72 B-25H Mitchell (Airfix + Scratch build)

Recommended Posts

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 latest build.

Please visit the WIP thread if you are interested in the build details.

This is a B-25H Mitchell of the 12th BG, 82nd BS based in India 1944. This is surely a Mitchell that has not been built a lot. I did end up finding proof that this B-25 existed, though no proof of what it looked like (which also means no proof that this is NOT what it looked like :winkgrin:)

I hope you enjoy looking at these.

Lovely work on a classic kit! A very nice upgrade - I will refer to this when I get around to mine, if the internet still exists by then...

One of my favourite older kits, I like what you've done with the old girl.

A nice bit of modelling.
