Eduard 1/72 Gunn's Bunny (2139)

This review we are going to check Eduard 1/72 Gunn's Bunny (2139). Kit comes as Limited Edition release from the famous Czech manufacturer. As you can guess, one box will bring us a chance to build B-25J Mitchell in small scale. Moreover, there should be some useful add-ons which will make whole model even more convincing. Another important note is that plastic comes from Hasegawa, so some of you might have assembled it already. :) Packaging is typical for Eduard, so let's open the box and take a closer look at parts.
By the way, here you can read review with another Limited Edition kit in the same scale.

We are going to start with wing parts. Here you will have to combine four parts together. External features look good for this scale.

Next you see tail fins and tailwings. Note that fins come as single-piece parts, while tailwing should be glued out of several panels. Of course, rudder and elevators are premolded.

Fuselage halves can be found on the third frame. Here you will also see engine gondolas. All these parts have guiding pins inside, so it should be easy to combine them together.

There are also some interior features premolded out of the box. Don't worry, you will add even more with help of separate parts and some PE elements.

This sprue comes in two pieces as we deal with twin engine aircraft. It is good to see at least some copy of the engine included, and it will also get some PE treatment from Eduard.

Another nice thing - one-piece nose section. Such design should be easier to work with, and final result would look a bit cleaner.

Today's Limited Edition also features resin wheels from Eduard. Such bonus would be noticeable on the model. Clear frame comes in the separate plastic bag, molding quality looks great. You can see pre-cut masks on the photo below.

Two PE frets will come handy for all fine features on your model. In my opinion this is a great addition for such build.

Decals sheets are printed in Eduard, so quality looks great. There is also a segmentation on the main sheet, so it will be easier to get the necessary symbol.

Kit offers 10 marking options, all of them are quite colorful.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. You can check all pages in the video-review.

New kit should be already available for purchase, but I would recommend to hurry if you want to get one. This is a Limited Edition release, so there is no doubt that it will be sold out quickly. Moreover, the overall recipe looks good - take nice plastic, add some aftermarket and cover them with a lot of interesting markings. Hasegawa kit might be not that young, but it still looks good and should be easy to build. Moreover, I hope Eduard will produce even more aftermarket for B-25 so that we would be able to upgrade model in all visible areas. :)
