This is one of my last "Why do I have this kit again?" kits. No idea why I have it. Does not fit in with what I build. But I like the way it turned out.  

Its a Accurate Miniatures B-25. I built it for the Pacific group build currently running on ARC.

The kit is almost out of the box.  It had some Verlindan seats and gun barrels that came with the trade.  The only thing missing was the nose weights.  Nose weights are something which this kit REALLY needs.  I had to use all my remaining fishing weights and need to get some more before I start my next kit.  Lucky the paint scheme I chose allowed me to just stuff the front of the plane with weights as the entire nose is painted over.  The decals are the option given in the box, "Red Wrath".

Only bad thing is this kit has shown me that there is no longer any shelf space at all in the basement.
