1:48 Revell B-25 J Mitchell “Januty Jo”
It’s been awhile since I posted any builds, so I figured I’d add another B-25 to the site. This is my first quarantine build, which has helped keep me sane through this surreal world.
The Real Story
The unfortunate thing about his particular plane it that the only record and/or photos I could find of it are sadly from its final mission. The full story of which is well documented here. http://www.chinaww2.com/2014/03/30/last-flight-of-the-jaunty-jo/
Not much to be said about the build as this kit has been around forever and is still a throwback to the models of the 70s & 80s. I added what I thought was enough fishing sinkers in the nose to allow it to sit without the step ladder holding up the rear, but evidently I did not use enough as it still “wheelies”. Oh well, it’s not like I’m entering it into a competition.
That’s all folks, keep building and stay as safe as possible.
