B-25 Canopy Framing Mask

Published: February 22, 2013
Company: Eduard

The set consists of two paper tape sheets. These are pre-cut to fit the clear parts on the Mitchell. If you were only going to buy one detail set for the B-25, this would be the one you would have to get. The masks are designed to fit each clear piece on the model. Once they’re applied, you can leave them on for the duration of the build and let them be the last thing to remove before… more

B-25 Ammunition Belts PE Set

Published: February 22, 2013
Company: Eduard

The set consists of one photo etch sheet. The PE parts are an unpainted natural metal (silver) color. This set is kind of interesting. You use the kit parts and these simply wrap around the existing belts, providing a very good looking ammo belt tray combination. The instructions are quite adequate in explaining the bending and placement of the details.

Published: October 16, 2012

This is the second release of the HK Models B-25J series. The first was the Glass Nose version which was thoroughly covered by Ed Kinney's excellent review. This version is "The Strafer", which has the solid nose containing eight .50 cal machine guns. This version relies on most of the parts provided in the glass nose version and includes several new part trees of gun nose. The same engine… more

F-15 Eagle Corrected Exhaust Nozzles

Published: September 7, 2012
Company: Two Mikes Resin Accessories

I have built several Tamiya 1/32nd scale F-15's and thought the kit engine exhausts were quite adequate. Little did I know that they could be vastly improved by using these detail parts provided by Two Mikes. The resin exhaust nozzles are direct replacement pieces for the kit parts which are "Overly Long," as stated in the instruction sheet. They can be used on the F-15A/B/C/D/J and DJ… more

Pitot Tube, RAM Air Inlet and AOA Probe for the F-4 Phantom II, Short Nose Version

Published: September 7, 2012
Company: Master Model

I have built several 1/32nd scale Phantoms, both Revell and the Tamiya versions, and have found the weakest and most fragile of all the parts are the pitot tubes and the tail probes (AOA). Thankfully, Master Model has come along with a very nice set of finely cast and turned items to replace these items.

In the short nose version set, you get three replacement detail parts to fit the… more

US Wheel Chocks, WWII

Published: August 28, 2012
Company: Profimodeller

With the release of all the World War Two US aircraft in this scale, it didn't take long for aftermarket companies to step in and start producing detail sets. Profimodeller is one of these and they have come up with some really nice stuff. The wheel chock set is a nice addition and will work great when I display the new HK Models B-25 on a base.

I went to Profimodeller's website and… more
