Eduard/Hasegawa 1:72 B-25J Medium Bomber
I just finished this (more or less) B-25J I did for a group a build. This North American B-25J was named Angel of Mercy and flew with the 412th Bombing Squadron, 310th Bomb Group 12th U.S. Airforce out of Corsica, France in January 1945. She eventually crash landed and was written off I believe.
The kit is a Eduard Rebox of the original Hasegawa kit. It came with photo etch, resin wheels and the new Eduard decals which are quite nice. I replaced the kit cowlings with correct ones from Quickboost as well as a set of resin MG barrels from Quick boost as well. The upper nose glazing did not have the correct emergency door exit so I scratched that which was a real challenge for me and my limited scratch building skills as I had to glue styrene strips without frosting the clear plastic, fill and sand multiple times to get to look the part. The yellow stripped decals for the tails were subpar so I painted on the strips. No gloss coat was used. Just added a Flory Models wash.
