I have a 1/72 scale B-25C/D kit with the option of a ventral/lower turret. Did the Soviets use the C or D model, anf if so, did they have the lower turret fitted? Thanks for looking. Adios, Larry.

I have good pictures in a reference of two B-25Cs and the bulge of the retracted turret is clearly visible.

So it is your call, unless you have a specific set of decals.




There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.

On page 471 of Soviet airpower in WWII by Yefim Gordon is a drawing of a B-25 C with the lower fuselage turret.Some had a russian turret installed on the upper fuselage.

I want to do one in the green, brown, ang gray over black scheme with the bare minimum of markings. I have photos of the "J" model painted that way and I think it looks very impressive. Adios, Larry.

You could do a winter white wash over the OD.

Got a color picture of a faded O.D. over black a/c with red stars over partly painted out U.S. markings. Thanks to all. Adios, Larry
