Been working on this but as usual I'm terrible about remembering pictures. My first attempt at an Eduard kit with the extra photo etch and resin bells and whistles. This kit uses Hasegawa plastic, with Eduards extras and the astronomical decal selection. Haven't decided which plane this one will be yet.

Finally getting a handle on the obscene amount of photo etch included with this thing. Screwed some of it up, but that was to be expected. Not something I do alot of. Either way, still kind of cool to add some dimension to the cockpit. Unfortunately most of it won't be visible. This is getting close to the closing up stage. If I get some time, perhaps even tonight.

Thanks Guy! Evidently all three of my photos didn't upload. But got it closed up and ready for canopies and masking. Just trying to decide which airplane to build. LOL!

The Eduard-egawa build continues. Glazing in, some of it temporarily. Masking to begin soon. Engines with Photo etch assembled and dry fit onto nacelles. Brassin Wheels and tires painted up. Getting close to getting some primer on it. Fit is pretty solid overall but a little filling and sanding will be necessary.

Looking great Kyle. The B-25 is such a cool looking bomber. I love twin tail designs for some reason. 👍

Thank you James! I do as well, as you may be able to tell from my build choices. Lol I also love the wing shape of the B-25.

Hell yeah, I've got another Ventura planned as well as a C-45, Me-110, Lancaster and B-25. All twin tails and in 1/48 scale 😉

Sometimes the cat dictates which project gets worked on. 🤦🏻‍♂️😂 Evidently it won't be this one today.

Kyle DeHart
I love her too, but I swear she hasn't moved off that box since I've taken this photo. 😂 I've been busy at work but at some point I'm going to need the masks that are in that box! LOL!

they have their own ideas, no doubt about it. both the B-25 and her look really good

Welcome! And thank you Daniel, she is certainly very regal. It's their house, we're just living in it. Lol

I think the cat is claiming the model as her own.

Kyle DeHart
I think you're right Chris!!

Anyway I forgot to add photos during taping and painting and all that. Added a photo of what the Eduard manual says it should look like. This eduard kit has so many great options with a nice history paragraph on each airplane. I chose the one I did because Joseph Heller flew in it and I liked the unique drab over aluminum camo with the ID markings left in bare metal. Thought it looked cool, but all of the decal options are great.

Now we have the paint down. Just a few spots to touch up and then I'll gloss coat for decals.
