    My second build for this GB. Let's hope that I have enough time to finish this one up before the deadline!

    I've had this in the stash for a while now, and I've been itching to get started. With the Beaufighter in the home stretch, it's time to declare my intentions for number 2. There are oodles of reference material on this bird available, so less research with this one and more time to work on the details. 8)

    Cheers

    Nice one Peter, and a great kit. Always wanted to do that kit as a RAF Mitchell II. Got the Revell/Monogram B25J which I'll enter as a RAF Mitchell III if I have time.....

    Nice choice. I'm hoping to do a B-25 gunship someday. I'll be following the progress on this one. :p

    Wow - thanks for the link Andy. I haven't see a photo of the complete aircraft yet, but there's a great scene with Dirty Dora taking off and you get a complete eye full. :shock::lol:

    Cheers
