    Great choice Dale, should be a good one, and the ex- Accurate Miniatures kit is excellent.
    Only you can decide which category you wish to enter under - the judges have no direct say in the matter.

    Nice one and I think you will be needing a good chunk of weight up front for this.

    Hey, Catch, when I saw the decal sheet, I just had to find a reason to get it. I like the idea of a Russian B-25. My biggest concern will be the actual shades of paint. I need to get the decal sheet in hand and see what it has to say. I may be bugging you guys for more info.

    Yeah, Vic, I understand the bird will need a hefty chucnk of wgt added. I think I may go with the SAC metal gear legs as a safe idea. Need to add that to the original post.

    Can't wait to see the Accurate Mitchell built Dale. I built the old Revell years and years ago and found that there was room under the cockpit floor to stuff enough lead sheet to hold down the nose. The balance should not be that much different.

    Yep, there's enough room under the cockpit floor and, as the nose wheel well has the doors closed on the ground, there's quite a bit of room in the well, where you can get plenty of weight in.
