This kit is living up to every review I’ve read about it. It’s bare bones inside, and the amount of flash and ejector pin marks make construction tedious. The fit isn’t too bad, but the molding is quite inconsistent, meaning I’ve done a lot of sanding and filling already. Still, I crept ever closer to closing up the fuselage. I’m still not sure whether to have the gear up or down. Gear up means less openings to see the absolute lack of interior detail, but also means I have to deal with some subpar crew figures. This is complicated by some figures being used in critical positions in building eg. the top turret gunner is built into the gun assembly. They also look like they’re operating at 13,000ft and not tree top level in the South Pacific. That’s not even mentioning the sorry excuse for bomb bay doors. Does anybody have suggestions for building the doors closed while maintaining the curve of the belly and shoring up the giant gaps? One things for sure: I’ll be a lot better at sanding, filling, and scratch building once I’m through. #airfix #airfixmodels #airfixmodel #airfixmodelkit #scalemodel #brailescale #scale172 #scalemodelworld #scalemodels #scalemodeling #scalemodelkit #worldwar2 #worldwarii #ww2 #b25mitchell #b25

On December 16, 1944, German military forces launched an operation they named "Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein," a counter-offensive late in World War II that aimed to smash through the Allies, which would have forced them to sue for peace in favor of the Germans. . The Germans were unsuccessful, but some 19,000 US servicemen lost their lives during what we now call the Battle of the Bulge. Seventy-three years later, the few remaining veterans of those hellish 40 days who live in Palm Beach County gathered at the Hilton Palm Beach Airport to see old friends and remember those who have already passed.
