First Look

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:

  1. Bomb bay doors
  2. Inboard landing flaps
  3. Outboard landing flaps
  4. Main landing gear doors
  5. Main landing gear struts
  6. Propellers
  7. Nose gear doors
  8. Nose gear strut
  9. 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!
