  1. Really outstanding work, Valter! You've done some awesome painting and detailing.


  2. Nice work. Can’t wait to see this.

  3. Nice job. Unfortunately most of the great work will be hidden. Can't wait to see the finished build.

  4. Exquisite job of bringing this old girl back to life...well done, sir.

  5. Hello Valter,
    All has been said above. Looking forward to the finished model.
    Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  6. SHAMEFUL...SHAMEFUL, I say...that once it is closed-up, folks won't be able to climb-aboard to get a good look at the awesome work you've done detailing the inside of this great bird. Posting photos of your remarkable interior close to the model in the showcase will be perfect. VERY impressive, Valter.

  7. Another magnificient work with an oldie but kit. The scratch work and the interior painting/weathering is amazing. Splendid work Valter! Eagerly waiting the final presentation

    Great work. It was going a little Spanish for my tastes at the beginning but when you started weathering it just took on a fantastic look.

    Great modeling.


  9. WOW !
    What amazing details you have scratched into this build. I am very impressed... You my friend have some serious skills... 🙂 This has to be the best B-25 I have seen to date.

  10. I've never met a B-25 that I didn't like. The Monogram B-25 is the one kit that offers the perfect canvas for painting and representing WWII with all of the art work painted on the sides and of course there is Joseph Heller and Catch-22.

    Quote; "He had decided to live forever or die in the attempt."

    One thing about the Monogram B-25 is that when people used slide rules for making plastic kits they did wood mockups and pantographed the mockups for cutting molds. They didn't make the kit accurate to the North American drawings. They made it accurate enough for the viewer to feel that the kit felt right to the viewer. Call it a flawed model that feels good. Its a Catch-22 that in today's standard wouldn't pass mustard ... just as all good art is flawed and time less and forever.

    Two thumbs up Valter.

  11. Beautiful detail work! Looking forward to the end result.

  12. What a nive job. Really amazing.
