    Hey, Guys,
    Anyone have any feedback on the Academy 1/48 B-25G kit? A friend is in Korea on biz and found a few for ~$30ish/kit. Worth it? Major issues with the kit/build?
    Thanks,
    Dale

    Well worth it - it's a re-boxing of the superb Accurate Miniatures kit!
    In the UK, it's around £25+, so about US $37+, and when it was released by AM it was well over £30.

    Thanks, Airframes. I will tell him to grab one or two for me.

    You're welcome. When you get them, could you please let me know if the kit has an alternative 'glass' nose, or, if not, post a pic of either the instructions or parts, showing the break-down of how the nose goes together?
    EDIT: Cancel the last bit - the kit includes the parts for the 'glass' nose.

    Hey, 'frames,
    Still need the instruction scan? I would be more than happy to do so once I have the kit in my grubby hands.

    No, it's ok thanks Dale. I was just wondering if a B-25C (Mitchell II) could be built from the kit, and the answer is yes. But I've since found an Italeri (re-boxed Accurate Miniatures) B-24C/D at a good price, so problem solved.

    I saw it a few weeks ago. If I did not have 3 other B-25 to build I would have brought it home.
