Italeri B-25 H Mitchell "Gunship"
I built this kit a while ago around 1984, it was built straight out of the box. I used the "Sweet Sue" decal set from the Matchbox B-25 kit, the US insignias are from Microscale and the white stripes are also Microscale that cost me 50 cents for set of two back then. This was not a difficult build and at the time it was the best B-25 kit in the model world. The paint I used was the old Poly-s acrylic, gloss is the Future floor wax and the dull coat is again from Polly-S. The engine stain/exhaust is from using oil pastel and dry brush the rest evenly. Some aluminum paint was dry brushed in the leading edge areas to simulate paint erosion.
This old kit is still sold today, Italeri also has the earlier versions of the B-25. The final shot is when I finished my Frog B-25D build last year to compare the two. This is one kit I would not mind building again.
