Top Flite B-25J Mitchell Project

       These pages document my experience building the Top Flite B-25 ARF kit. I have compiled several hundred photos as well as detailed descriptions of the steps I took to assemble this large scale kit. Because of the sheer volume of information and photos in this build article I have decided to break it into sections for ease of accessibility. If you have any comments or questions about this project please feel free to contact me.

Thanks, Don Giandomenico
