Academy – 1/48 Scale B-25G “Shark Mouth Plastic Model Kit
The B-25 Mitchell was one of the best known medium bombers of WWII, starting with the daring raid on Tokyo that began on an aircraft carrier of all places. Designed by North America, it was hastily pressed into service at the beginning of America’s involvement with WWII with well over six thousand airframes constructed, and many variants fighting in all theatres of the Second World War.
The B-25G was sometimes referred to as the Strafer, as it was heavily modified in the shortened nose to mount a large 75mm cannon, in a similar fashion to that mounted in the TseTse Mosquito. It also carried either two or four 0.50cal machine guns in the nose, which were used partially for ranging of the main gun, the dorsal turret and tail turret, which was heavily blended into the tail fillet. The ventral turret was retractable, and additional fuel was carried to extend range in the “dirty” air that is found at lower altitudes. The forward cabin was also given a grafted on applique armour panel to protect the pilots, and the bomb bay could still be used for attacking ground or sea borne targets.
