"Very fun kit"
travis.getz
I found this kit a blast to build. The thing really bristles with guns when you're done. Note that I had to add some additional weight in the front to keep it on the nose wheel (as opposed to sitting on its tail). It is a great complement to other aircraft in this scale and there are many decal options available for the kit. Great price for a fun build.

"Paint much green anyone?"
J Bevill (Palm City, FL)
Ill start off by saying if you're going to build the Jaunty Jo version and you have an airbrush - do yourself a HUGE favor and before you start cutting anything from the sprues, airbrush the entire sprues olive drab. Spray everything olive drab unless it looks like a gun or is clear. It'll save you SOOOOO much time hand painting all the OD, which is about 90% of the parts. When you get to the wings to glue them on - use EPOXY! Don't try to CA or cement them on. By the time your almost done with the build and you've carefully turned the model from upside down to right side up and back again quite a few times, it's likely one wing can come off if you don't epoxy them on. When you get to the nose - the 4 guns that get glued into place and then poked through the 4 little holes, make SURE they are glued well! If not, you'll slide that nose piece on and one will come loose, making an already tedious task of gluing the clear nose parts together even harder. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to really take your time when gluing together the nose section to get it right. Trust me it can assemble together flawlessly if you are patient and really dry fit as you go along. It'll prevent many of the issues people write about this part of the build. Other than that, another great kit, wish the panel lines weren't raised. Also, take your time detailing the cockpit - it WILL be visible. Definitely a tail sitter but I fixed that by super gluing fishing weights into every place not going to be seen possible in the nose of the plane. A great build! I recommend it but just pay attention to the minor details on this one. It will be rewarding!

 
"Magnificent Mitchell"

This is the second B-25 in 1/48 I have built in the past 6 months, both of them being the Revell/Monogram kits. This glass nosed bomber version went together very nicely. Putty does't scare me and a bit was needed to make a seamless fuselage joint and again where the tail unit joins to the fuselage. Care must be taken when attaching the multitude of clear pieces as there are plenty of opportunities to mess up the canopies if too much adhesive is used. Clear canopy glue of any manufacturer reduces the risk of oozing glue. The bomb bay is snug so care must be taken to trim all pieces properly to ensure they all fit inside the small bomb bay. As mentioned elsewhere weight must be added as this, like nearly all nose wheel aircraft is tail heavy. Don't fret as there is room in the bombardiers crawlway and also between the engine and the firewall where plenty of weight can be secured to have this model sit on it's weighted wheels. As with most bigger models a lot of the small detail work of interior pieces will not be visible once the fuselage is joined together. Very little of the interior of the rear fuselage is to be seen so you could very easily not take the time to do up the ammo bins etc and no-one would notice. You would be better off taking the time to do a bang up jib on the bombay as the bulkheads and the bombs are plainly visible if you leave the doors open. The B-25J was a very popular aircraft and as such there is a large number of after market pieces and decals that are available allowing one to have a custom built aircraft that will truly stand out in a crowd of Mitchells. I would highly recommend this model to anyone who is looking to increase the size of their medium bomber air force. Cheers, Jeff

 
"Pretty good"
Ragajester
A nice model. Very cool decals and paint job. Only problem was that items inside the fuselage did not stay in very well and the two fuselage halves did not come together cleanly. I had to do quite a bit of sanding, cutting and gluing to get it to fit right. Even through all of that the top ball turret did not go in well ( Sigh). Other than that though it is a great model!
