White Ensign Models continues to turn out some very interesting detail sets in their 1/350 scale range. In this increment, they are detailing up the Trumpeter aircraft set that contains ten North American B-25B Mitchells. This aircraft set from Trumpeter is designed to expand the aircraft composition for their own 1/350 WW2 USS Hornet aircraft carrier that launched Jimmy Doolittle's Tokyo Raiders.
This detail set provides each of the ten Trumpeter Mitchells with:
- Bomb bay doors
- Inboard landing flaps
- Outboard landing flaps
- Main landing gear doors
- Main landing gear struts
- Nose gear doors
- Nose gear strut
- Crew entry door
These photo-etched parts will provide an additional level of detail and fidelity to your aircraft carrier's airwing. But if this still isn't enough detail for you, check out their photo-etched cockpit interior set for the Mitchell!
Just when you thought you couldn't find any greater detail in 1/350 scale, White Ensign Models has come alongside with their latest creations.
My sincere thanks to White Ensign Models for this review sample!
