NAA B-25-J Mitchell

My best replica yet, which swamps the quality of all my others. The B-25-J Mitchell is my favorite bomber, and one of the most iconic too! So, issues with this replica... Lets start with the fact that the front looks awful. The bomb bay holds no bombs due to self-destructing issues, and the landing gear is in the back because of how weight was distributed. But other than all of its shortcomings, it's a very beautiful bomber!

History:
The North American B-25 Mitchell is an American twin-engine, medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation (NAA). 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.
