    Entry: B-25D of the Soviet Air Force 35 Guards Long Range Air Regt - A.S. Moghlitsky crew, Hungary, 1945
    Kit: 1/48 Academy B-25D
    Extras: Authentic Decals
    Accessories: scratch building were needed, Authentic Decals - B-25 Mitchells in the Russian Sky. Probably add the SAC metal gear legs.

    I will finalize this post over the weekend.

    I could have sworn that I successfully posted a finished thread.... I cannot find it though. Charles, Wurger, please forgive the 2nd post of the 1st is hiding someplace.

    Either way, finished the '25. I gave up on the aerial wires as the masts were just too wimpy. Next time I build one, I will scratch a set up with some form of reinforcement. All in all, the AM kit is a nice kit. Not Tamiya GREAT, but nice. I need to figure out a way to ensure I do not knock out side glass on future kits, getting the last one back in place was an exercise in patience.

    Thank you, Paul. It was nice to actually finish one on time (well, given the extension).

    Hey, Guys,
    Thank you for stopping in and all the positive feedback. I was totally bummed I could not get the aerial wires in place. Damned masts are just too wimpy to take the strain regardless of how I cemented them in.
