Just so you guys know why I want to get this project done, another of the Doolittle Raiders passed away last weekend. Chase Nielsen, one of the 4 survivors of the Japanese POW camps, died at the age of 90.
Any more finished photos guys?
Here's a teaser:http://www.doolittleraid.com/B25model.htm
One is in the "works" Ryan.
Thanks to some dilligent work by our own Willja67 the Doolittle Raiders 65th anniversary edition B-25B model is available in it's initial release form. This is a basic version (all we had time for in order to meet the deadline), but we hope to add expanded features soon! Right now the file delivery is via email, but if there are other options for transferring the files to the customers, I'd be open to suggestions.
The webpage for the model is: http://www.doolittleraid.com/B25model.htm
Cost is $7.00 as we'd like to make a little money and be able to maybe add some more models in the future.
Thanks for your interest.
P.S. Please be kind as this is my first attempt!
Maybe I have a dumb day but where I can see a picture of a finished colored model? I read the threads but I can found the picture. I know the work of the designer but I think a good picture is better than 1000 words.
If I buy now the model later I'll get the updgrades?
Ok, I've lashed out my 7 bucks.
Actually I wouldn't mind a white model, as I want to do a postwar RCAF Mitchell. I've more or less given up on ever seeing the FG B-25 which has been in progress since the Dead Sea was only sick it seems.
Detail upgrades will be free when I get them from Will. Additional color schemes will not be as I think that's what takes the most time to do. I do plan on adding some additional schemes. The initial version is for Doolittle's aircraft.
FWIW................ here's a snap of the colored version................remember I ain't no Carl or Ted or Rick.........etc!
Also it looks more post-strike than pre-strike right now
How do you like the redesigned vertical tails?
Truthfully............. I like the re-design..........but I also liked the ease of the first one. I think it would be neat to offer the builder the option of choosing.:roll:
You really did a good job Will. I think you could work on others like this and still do the super detailed kits too!
I would love to see an A-20 Havoc and a B-26 Marauder. But that's just me I bet! NOT!:grin:
I also wold like to see a C-46 Curtis Commando too.
I'm working on the engines nacelles right now and will post a better looking picture when complete
For those of you who are following this thread, you may be interested in an article in today's web page of the Dallas Morning News.
Seven of the surviving members of the carrier-based Doolittle Raid on mainland Japan are gathering this week in San Antonio in recognition of the 65th anniversary of the event. Of the 80 crew members of the 16 B-25Bs there are now only 14 survivors.
(I'm looking forward to seeing this model finished and made available to Mitchell lovers everywhere)
