Airfix 1:72 B-25C/D as a USMC PBJ-1D
this is the new Airfix B-25C/D. the early Mitchell in 1:72 scale has been one of my “holy grail” kits for a long time. Airfix finally answered my prayers earlier this year with this release.
fit and detail parts are excellent. I think Airfix captured the look of the early mitchell very well, especially in the nose area.
i only added a few additions, some work on the pilot/co-pilots seats, Eduard seat belts, Quickboost MG barrels, and small details to the Main landing gear and wheels.
Decals are from the kit. markings are very generic, depicting a USMC PBJ-1C/D as they appeared in 1943 as they were delivered to the Marine corp training squadron. no modifications had been preformed, i.e., added radar or rear gunner’s position.
paints are Mission Models USN Blue-Grey over Light Gull Grey
