1/48 Monogram B-25J Mitchell Emergency Strip- Expanded version with new pictures

May 12, 2013 in Aviation

Here is the expanded version of 1/48 Monogram B-25J Solid nose with new pictures. This was finished with the markings of “Emergency Strip” from 38th BG / 71st BS in Okinawa during August 1945.
The kit is old Monogram from 1991 with raised panel lines.
Modifications are::
– Eduard seat belts
– Cutting Edge B-25 late type corrected cowling set for Accurate Miniatures.
– Quickboost gun barrels
– True Details B-25 wheel set
– Resicast clear lens for landing/taxi lights
I decided to built this B-25 without side gun packs due to my reference picture.
Decals are from “Albatros- B-25 Mitchell at war / Dragon and tigers and girls….oh my” decal set.

Happy modelling

  1. Very nice job Tolga that is one of the best 25s i have seen keep up the good work

  2. Tolga……Nice job. You made that old Monogram kit look good.

  3. Wow! Tolga, that is one bad-*ssed B-25. Great modeling work on that bird sir!

  4. What a beauty! Tolga this is an amazing job, your craftsmanship is perfect, clean, well detailed and your paint job is extraordinary! Impressive work!

    Congratulations for this amazing B-25!

    cheers mate


  5. Your treatment of the tires/wheels is most convincing, something to aspire to.

  6. Very good!

    Best regards, Vlad.

  7. I really like that B-25. You did an excellent job on the finish. So much fun weathering and fading OD. Great job and fun markings. I am putting finishing touches on my Accurate Miniatures B-25 in the Dirty Dora boxing. I would say I had all the same issues with assembly you did with the Monogram kit, I just hope mine comes out as nice as yours. Again Great Job!

  8. Thanks for the comments.

  9. Tolga .. a SUPER model .. AND you did ONE thing that is not done much on models ..the tires SHOWS a “flat” side on the ground …as much realism as it gets ..I look at some of my models that NEED “better looking tires”, and wonder where to get real looking tires !!! Inspiring job with details, paint job .. GREAT !!!!
