Ok been looking for this one. It is suppose to be 1/72 but comes in at 1/69 but who cares. it was the second model my dad ever bought me when l was a kid and l wish acquire another one. l have hit everyone l know now and come up zilch. So l know some of you dabble in this scale as well and was wondering if any of you have one hidden away in their stash?

Thanks for looking

I remember getting one of these kits for Christmas and having it built in a few days. Paint? Don't need no stinkin' paint, it has chrome parts, but it was hard to get the decals to lie down. Lots of joy from Revell and Monogram back in the day. Good luck with your quest, sorry, but I don't have one anymore.

We get a bunch of vendors at our April model show (Model Classic) that bring a ton of old kits.  Do you want me to look for one for you?  Weekend of April 21 - PM me if you do, with your budget, and I'll see if I can find one for you.

Go here and choose from the search drop downs  Monogram > 1/70 > B-25

https://www.oldmodelkits.com/

 

There are 3 there but only 1 that is an exact match.  :shrug:

Well tell you what here

Out of curiosity l sent an email asking if l would be advised to when it will be shipped. l got an immediate Mailer-Daemon reply . No biggie l will just wait see what happens then if l get nothing then l will just put in a claim. We should stick to sites we know and trust. My wife just went through this. She bought something from another site and ended up getting nothing plus they charged her double what was quoted. We got the money back within a month. In my case here is fool me once shame on you . Fool me twice shame on me

Maybe we should have a list of sites to stay away from on here? Just a suggestion
