B-25C "Dirty Dora" 1:72 Airfix

I actually found one of the old MPC 1/72 B-25 kits! It has a PBJ option for one of the versions. Certainly not nearly as good as this one.

Small update.
I painted engine covers blue again. Now it’s correct. I made masks myself using Tamiya tape and copy of decals as template.



Now time for clear gloss and decals.

Ladies and Gentlemen - my name is “Dirty Dora” :slight_smile:
Unfortunatelly I made a small mistake on the right side. I started this side and I decided to put decal in one piece. It wasn’t good idea. I spent almost 15 minutes to put decal correctly. Finnally I received medium success as You can see below:


On the right side I cut 2 small pieces which were problem on the other side (see red lines).

I cut “Hinomaru” signs because they were in the wrong place (they should be over 5-6 bomb not 7-8).
I will add them next with parts I cut earlier.

I also put stars on wings and fuselage.

Stay tuned :slight_smile:

Cool stuff. I am building this one. Angel of Mercy. It’s the Eduard re-box of the Hasegawa kit.

I know this model because I have Hasegawa B-25H (it’s similar to Yours). It’s very nice model.

All decals on place. Retouch done. Now it’s time to final assembly.

That’s the one. I remember watching it as a kid. I don’t remember too much about it though.
