Monogram 1/48 B-25J
April 5, 2014 in Aviation
This is the first of the Monogram medium bombers I’ve finished. I have to say the quality of the kits during this era was and still is very nice! I’ve built the B-29 a couple of times and the B-17 and they’re all fun builds! (I also have an A-26 and a B-26 in the works.)
The kit went together without any major problems and I only had to use a bit of filler in the nose section.
I did manage to find one picture of the actual aircraft taken just after it had gotten hit by AA and was going down. Unfortunately it was a very low level attack and the crew did not survive.
The plane was painted with Model Master enamels and metalizers. The wings and vertical tails were painted separately from the fuselage and attached after painting was completed. This allowed me easy access to the inboard side of the nacelles and the adjacent fuselage to make painting the demarcation line a little easier.
