I just finished reading a great book that was suggested on these forums, Warpath Across the Pacific, and thanks to all those brave men that served in that unit.  Anyway I want to try and build an example of a b-25 from each of the squadrons.  I am finding that many of the marking from these units are out of production and available at ridiculous prices.  Looking for a reasonable source for markings.  By the way I have already done a B-25J gun nose from the 498th, so I just need the 499,500,501.  Thanks

Another great book about the Air Apaches is "Air Apaches"...by Jay Stout. He also wrote the great book about the 303rd Bomb Group in England.

Pick up a 32nd scale B-25J gun nose strafer...it has Air Apache decals in the box. Great kit too!

Definitely an interesting subject. I just finished the HK B-25 and made some masks for the markings. It's from the 405th, so not one of the squadrons you mentioned, but if you are interested I can see about reducing the mask to 1/48th.

Brenhen,

 

Thanks for the offer but this is not an immediate project, as I have other things on the bench, but I am always thinking of the next thing.  I appreciate the offer but I will continue my search for the 345 squadrons.  Imay have to try making my own masks for some of these.

 

Thanks again.

I'll take that offer!

Send me a DM with your address and I'll see what I can do. I haven't tried it yet, so we'll see how it translates to a smaller scale
