Item: B-25G Item # R9-0123
Scale: 1/200
Medium: Resin w/steel screw mounting point
Manufacturer: Armaments in Miniature, LLC (AIM) armamentsinminiature.com
Vendor: AIM
Price: $8 USD

General Impressions: The model is a single-piece casting with a steel screw cast in the belly. It's a clean casting with nice detail, Seam lines were limited and easily removed. There was an internal air pocket at the very tail end of the fuselage. The surface of the model was not compromised but the pocket was visible when the model was held to the light. Not wanting the skin to rupture later, I preemptively drilled a hole in the tail and filled the space with putty. I recommend epoxy putty for this as solvent based putties can soften the resin. The model has two machine gun barrels in the nose along with the cannon. I managed to break one of the barrels. I replaced the broken barrel with a bit of wire.

Recommendations: I recommend the model for all skill levels. You may want to consider replacing the resin gun barrels with wire. The down side to that would be having sharp pointy things where they're not expected.

Notes: I used some leftover Goblin Factory decals on this B-25G model.
