The North American B-25
was a American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theater of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended. It saw service over for over four decades.
The B-25 was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. By the end of its production, nearly 10,000 B-25s in numerous variations had been built. These included a few limited variations, such as the United States Navy's and Marine Corps' PBJ-1
and the United States Army Air Forces' F-10 photo reconnaissance aircraft.
The B-25 gained notoriety in the second world war when Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle attacked mainland Japan four months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The mission gave a much-needed lift in spirits to the Americans, and alarmed the Japanese who had believed their home islands were inviolable by enemy forces. Although the amount of actual damage done was relatively minor, it forced the Japanese to divert troops to the home defense for the remainder of the war. The B-25 cemented its place in the history books as the 16 bombers took off from the USS
and successfully bombed Tokyo along with four other Japanese cities without loss.
Our B-25 Mitchell is a sport scale model with just the right amount of detail to please, yet isn't overly complicated. Rugged electronic retracts and operating wing flaps add to the scale appearance. The model is mostly bolt together with the only parts to glue being the vertical fins. We've added a nice touch, a PCB board that your wing connections plug into. Only two connectors are requred to connect the wing to the fuselage which makes going to the field a breeze. All of this, along with the wing bolts and the battery are accessed through the magnetically secured battery hatch. Adding to the realism of the model are the 3-blade counter-rotating propellers and a full complement of faux machine guns.
Flying the B-25 is also a treat. Ample power is on tap for quick, Doolittle style take-offs, and the flaps slow the model down with minimal pitch changes for scale like landings. Seeing the model in the air is facilitated by the scale navigational lights! Just like the real thing, rolls are slightly off axial. Loops as big as you want them are easy to accomplish, as is a not so scale like inverted flight.
