Really nice work on that interior detail - the extra colors on the wires really go a long way. I don't know if it's just the way the camera shows it, but that gloss you're using might be too much - it leaves it looking very plastic. Maybe try a matte finish instead of satin, or find another gloss that doesn't go on so thick?

Once i'm through with these cans I'll try to pick up some that I can use an airbrush with - should help to get some thinner coats. Also, i think the macro lens and flash in a soft box makes things look a little glossier than what the eye would notice.

Count Buggula
Yeah, I wondered if that's the case. Either way, you're doing a great job - way more detail than I put into mine!
I really wish there was a better tooled 1:48 B-25J because I'd love to do it again, and while there's a good B model out there, I'm just not as interested in it for some reason.

Nice work with the putty. I tried that method on my Corsair and really didn't like how it turned out so I redid it holding a stencil 1/2" away from the model. My B-25 was just straight lined tape. Yours turned out really well.

Thank you for the kind words! I'm pleased with how using the putty turned out, but on one side the line is a bit busier than it probably should be.

Way to go - I just got back into the hobby after almost as long too. You obviously put a lot of work into making that old Revell model look decent. I did a similar thing by building a Revell B-25 with wheels up and swore I'll never do it again. They do a terrible job with the fit of those parts that were very obviously never designed to be built closed.
I hope you stick with building and look forward to seeing what you do with better models and maybe an airbrush! Good luck!

The prop looks extremely realistic in picture 27!

Thanks guys - I'm having all sorts of fun! I've picked up an airbrush, and a workbench, plus a few more kits and supplies. I've also started that B-25 kit, it's moving right along but agreed it'll be the last of the Revell-Monogram 'classics' for a while.

Cool, it's actually not a terrible kit, aside from the raised panel lines. If it weren't for that I'd be tempted to do it again and see how much better I could do the second time. Just don't try and build it with the wheels up - those doors are a mess and nowhere close to the right size to fit closed. I had to use a lot of putty and it still didn't look great.
I highly recommend buying some pre-cut masks for the glass for that model. It'll save you a ton of time, sweat, and tears. I learned that the hard way. I don't think I'll ever build another model without them again.
