I thought join the foray here having wanted a reason for some time to build this little B-25.The build I am strictly keeping simple seeing I just completed one that was little exhausting just trying to find some fun.It's been a while. ;)

Remember now OOB the only thing extra I have is mask coming in later this week.The pit is basically done kinda fudged the seatbelts in the back good thing once closed all is gone.I kinda like the engineering on this one more and more companies going to the wingspar system.ICM uses it quite a bit itself on multi-engine layouts to which the B-26 and He-111 in 1/48 are dreams.What I have seen in the instructions the bottom turret is a pegged spring pole Nice may aid in painting later.Some pics.................. ;)

I have to say fellas this is a Nice kit with some Nice engravings and the fit is Very Good qualifying this kit as a good candidate for a NMF which you will see before she goes OD. I have to say I am impressed with Airfix on this one. :notworthy:

Oh is OK to display in flight?:dontknow:
