    I'm looking to paint the interior C351 I Gunze brand the green zinc chromate which according think is very similar to FS 34092 - Rlm 70 - Humbrol 117 which is the H302 / h64 Gunze, but it is very dark, for the pictures I think it was the h58 yellow green Gunze, humbrol 151 the closest thing, so, I need to take a help with the issue.

    Good one Sergio. From what I've seen, the interior was a mix of Bronze Green, with green ZC, and Interior Green on fittings such as seat frames and brackets etc. Thequilted padding in various areas, such as the cockpit side walls, was a sage green colour, similar to a lightened version of RAF Cockpit Grey Green.
    These pics are of the interior of the B-25C 'Grumpy', when it first arrived at Duxford in the late 1980's (now back in the USA in RAF markings), when it was in original interior finish, apart from 'modern' extra seats and instruments etc. Ignore the 'modern' fittings, and look closely at the various areas, and the differences can be seen.
    Other photos, including period shots, show similar colours throughout the B-25 series.
    Hope these help.

    in 1943 the aircraft is delivered from the factory (from what little I've read) in faggio italy, Was in several operations against barracks adriatic Germans in Yugoslavia, in January 1944 the 12th BG was sent to the Pacific front in india, where to operations over the Gulf of bengal against supply ships and supply lines in Burma and southern China to weaken the Japanese defenses, the more special was mismion attack railway bridge over the river in the vicinity of mungdo , next to the border of China and India, destroying the train traveling on the bridge where he was the head of the Japanese army in Burma, support various operations more surviving the war but ending its days as scrap.

    Wayne thanks
    I started assembly, by the time everything pretty well detailed, tapes lacks weaponry feeding both the front, as the sides and tail, he'll look to do with plastic sheet and aluminum foil, also will missing something that is internal wiring looketh if I put the wiring or not all depends on being sincere desire that you have, I'm having a lot of work and I get quite lacking in desire other than rest and be with family.

    so first of all be caulked and remove Injection marks to continue working on the plane.

    painting progress as a basis inside Gunze use h58 green, after that I gave the H302 (Fs 34092) so that it is not very uniform to make it look something lower color.
