B-25 prop spin direction?

Probably a stupid question, but I need to ask as I'm not very knowledgeable about WWII and propeller aircraft.

I'm in the process of building a 1/72 scale B-25 Mitchell and am planning to buy and use PropBlurs photoetch spinning props on the kit. If I were standing in front of a real B-25 and it was starting up it's engines, then which way are the props spinning? Clockwise or counter-clockwise?

Not at all, the props would be spinning anti-clockwise. The way to tell is the prop turns in the direction of the leading (most forward) edge of the blade.

Try a Google for B-25 and look at the images, you'll see lots of spinning props ... and enjoy all the pix.
