The PBJ-1H is U.S. Navy variant of the B-25 which was operated by the U.S. Marine Corps as a ground attacker. This aircraft is a powerful ground strafing machine and due to the weapons package built-in, it can be viewed as a gunship.

This accessory is not identified for use on one specific manufacture's kit. The PBJ-1H in 1/72 scale is or has been produced by Hasegawa, Dragon Models & Matchbox.

Assembly is straightforward as there are only two components. The resin cast is feather-light and has very crisp detail and is flash free. To begin, I washed the cast using a mild solution of water and dish detergent. Next, I sawed the cast in half to gain easier access to each of the two components. After each piece was removed, I gently sanded smoothed the sawed surfaces and then adjoined both pieces using CA. The completed assembly was primed and painted with Tamiya Sky Gray.

This is a very nice accessory and I believe it would be an excellent replacement for any provided kit part.

Thank you to Brengun for supporting the IPMS Reviewer Corp and for providing this very nice accessory. Thank you to IPMS for the opportunity, and to Bill and Phil for all of your work.
