The B-25 looks really good. Are you going to weather it or do the panel lines? That would sure add to your all ready nice build. That's the Revell kit isn't it I did the same kit a ways back but mine met with an unfortunate, terrible, unfixable accident
But that only means that I just have to build another one
Nice job

Just found this post. Thanks Chuck.
Thanks to all of you for your kind words on my build. To answer some of your questions, yes this was the Revell kit, which in my opinion is a good one. There are only some minor gap issue's, and the detail overall is decent, especially considering that you can't see much after you close it up. A lot of weight needs to be added in order to have it sit on the nose gear (I almost didn't make it). I added just the exhaust stains to the upper and lower surfaces. I chickened put on post shading the panel lines (I have never tried it ). I may revisit this model and try it out.
It is great being part of this site, the work I have seen is totally outstanding.
Cheers Ted
