    this is a first impression review, of the orlik b25 mitchel

    first i was quiet surprised to see how large the model actually was
    its pretty big similar to some of the larger flymodel's
    i did not realise that there are 2 different versions of this kit either
    i was lucky and got the one i prefer
    the shiney metal ink one.
    the print quality is excellent and the shiney gloss pages of the aircraft frame are beautiful, i will have to use gloves when i finally make it

    now as for the detail of the kit... orlik is becoming one of fthe top makers of kits in my opinion. its going to make a beautiful fully ddetailed model imho
    every where from the canopies wth the detailed manchine guns to the engines are very very detailed and it looks like it will be a enjoyable challenge for the advanced model maker, i dont recommend it for the novice.

    english instructions are supposed to be available on orliks website. but i dont see them listed as of yet, however the large amount of detailed assembly pictures more than make up for it. i think you owuld assemble the model just on the avaialble illustrations...

    i also purchased the optional frame kit from my dealer as well
    they appear to have the high quality i have come to expect from them.
    i am satisfied that i purchased the frame kit and consider the whole package a 5 scalpel purchas!! :thumb:

    look to the next post for some quick photos of the kit

    thanks

    OI! Formers!

    I like the shiney metallic finish. Like the GPM B17's.
