Accurate Miniatures' 1/48 scale
by Tolga Ulgur
North American B-25D Mitchell “Tondelayo”
Tamiya's 1/48 P-51B Mustang is available online from Squadron.com for only $26.99!
This is 1/48 Accurate Miniatures B-25D Mitchell finished with the markings of Tondelayo from 500th BS 345th BG in Nadzab New Guinea during 1944.
Four machine guns protrude through the painted over nose glazing. Note that plexiglass tail cone has been removed.
Construction started from the cockpit as usual.
The cockpit was enhanced with Eduard instrument panel and Pavla resin seats.
I decided to use Quickboost engines and to replace inaccurate engine cowlings by DMold late type cowlings.
Final modification is for the wheels. I have used True details B-25B-J wheel set.
Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Camouflage is Olive Drab over Neutral Grey with red cowl rings and a white stripe completely encircling the fuselage in front of the dorsal turret.
I used Aeromaster #48 691 Best Sellers Marauding Mitchells Part IV decal sheet
The model was finished after some weathering and a matt coat.
