Scott Van Aken

Now for a nice sheet for the Accurate Miniatures 1/48 B-25C/D kit. Both of these planes are in the OD over Neutral Grey scheme and both served in the Southwest Pacific during WWII.

First up is 'Bedroom Commando' of the 500 BS/345 BG in New Guinea during 1944. It does not seem to have any of the usual extra guns that this unit liberally applied to its aircraft. The red cowl fronts and white fuselage band will have to be painted in place. This aircraft did not use the forward gun packs.

The other is 'Mitch the Witch' from the 17 RS/71 TRG in the Phillipines during 1943. It is a standard bomber and has a rather large bomb tally. The lower white fin will have to be painted and you can also note that there are guns sticking out of the rear of the plane. Makes one wonder where the gunner was! This aircraft does use the forward gun packs.

There are insignia for both of these aircraft.
