New from the Czech Republic come two very interesting additions to the all new H-K B-25J kit. While the kit gun barrels are acceptable, the enhancement that this product supplies is spectacular in comparison. These precision machined parts are jewel-like. The barrels themselves are two-part arrangements that consist of the barrel (hollow with air holes) and the gun tips themselves. They are to be painted separately and then assembled, showing the tips protruding in a polished metal without bluing. The final appearance is shown here. In this writer’s opinion, well worth having if you’re doing the B-25J.
Also from the manufacturer is a complete set of canopy masks for the aircraft. These are done in soft black vinyl and are real time savers, but I’d strongly suggest that you remove some of the adhesive by placing them on your forehead several times before final placement. It will make it much easier to remove. Both these products receive a “most highly recommended” rating.
Many thanks to Profimodeller for the review sample and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to use and review them.
