This B-25 model is made to be displayed in the inflight configuration, there is no option for a landing gear. It is mostly made of metal and very heavy/dense. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall. It has many guns and antennas sticking out and these are very fragile.

 

Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive. From the photos one can see and appreciate the transparent cockpit windshield, as well as the other transparent parts in the different gun positions and view ports. Even the tail gun positions looks accurate and have gun barrels sticking out, in fact, all gun positions have their respective gun barrels showing. The propellers are free to rotate and very smooth. If one blows onto the front of the plane, the propellers start spinning. All engines are part of the wing assembly, which in turn is one single piece.

 

Since there is no option for a landing gear, a stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).

 

The maker of the model, Model Power, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp.What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring. Look at the photos and you will see very clear and crisp nose art and markings.

 

The North American B-25 Mitchell is an American twin-engine, medium bomber manufactured byNorth American Aviation. It was named in honor of Major General William "Billy" Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. Used by many Allied air forces, the B-25 served in every theater of World War II and after the war ended many remained in service, operating across four decades. Produced in numerous variants, nearly 10,000 Mitchells rolled from NAA factories.[1] These included a few limited models, such as the United States Marine Corps' PBJ-1 patrol bomber and the United States Army Air Forces' F-10 reconnaissance aircraft and AT-24 trainers.
