Thanks Simon. My interest has come back and I'm making progress although I have my work cut out with this kit. As the pic below shows, I have lots of gaps and seams to fill. You can see my contraption for gluing the nose. I have been working on the major parts like wings and tail which has been a nice break from the small details in the cockpit. The only good thing about filling, sanding and scribing is that my favorite part follows... Paint!

That's some serious "clampage" going on in that photo, but it looks like you have got it under control, I agree painting is definitely the best part

Just about done with the filling and sanding. Only a small bit of scribing on this one since its raised panel lines. I've tried a technique using Mr Surfacer to replace the raised panel lines I've sanded away. It seems like it does OK but I need to see how it looks after its painted. This was taken just before I put a coat of flat black on the seams to be sure I was done. Next is primer! BTW, Eduard masks are worth every penny for a bomber build.

I've been able to make some good progress the last couple of weeks on the B-25. I'm finished with paint and just about done with decals. Unfortunately. I've been bad about taking pics while doing it. Safe to say the paint went down well and the decals have been good as well although since this aircraft has a large decal on the nose that needs to conform to several angles, it's been 'fiddly' as Bobby would say. This pic was taken before doing the top color of olive drab. Hoping to finish the decals tomorrow and get on to weathering. I haven't decided if I want to weather it as it would look in service at the end of the War or not.

I promised to add more pics to show where I'm at. Finished the decals tonight and will be adding a gloss coat tomorrow. The national insignias that came with the Eagle decals were way too light blue so I had to dig out a set of super scale decals I have had for about 15 years and almost forgot about. I knew I bought them for something way back then. I was working on details like landing gear and gun barrels also. You can also see in the foreground of the last pic another small project to add to my GB. Thanks for looking.

Ron

I third that, great work with the nose art. The painting and shading came out very nicely too.

The nose art is my favorite part of the build although it was a really tough decal to get right. It does look great now that I have installed the eight resin .50 cals. Ted, I wouldn't want that thing behind me with that menacing face and those guns. I'm about done with the aircraft build and I've moved on to the added jeep for my diorama. I'm not sure if I should post some finished pics of the aircraft here or wait until the whole thing is done?
