Well this wasn’t the dream build I was hoping for. I think naming it Lady Luck was Bad Luck! The decals I was trying to use just didn’t work out and the ID Numbers on the back was great till I sealed them. This build has fought me from day one but at least I save it and it’s not in my garage being moved around and beat up collecting dust. Hope you enjoy the pics thanks for all who have followed this from day one. 3837F7CD-3808-4AB6-9BFF-768AF20BB3F2.jpeg67E6063B-FEF2-4CAB-9121-3EA4FD86C5B0.jpeg84D410F4-6C7B-463D-9200-A015AA1340A2.jpeg02AD55DC-282C-4D2B-9D78-63370BD975E5.jpeg6543E533-95CE-4288-A63F-02CFBA0825FB.jpeg7D8CF4F1-81A2-4B59-9A20-A928C4EA3AA0.jpeg

Hi Lee
Looks very nice. Well done overcoming the problems. I've often said that when you have a kit with issues and manage to still get a good result it is very satisfying.

Scottie thanks for stopping by and the complement. The B-25 has always been my favorite of all the twin props.
YES same here Lee i have always loved the B25 EVERYTHING about the plane looks right to me an the daring dolittle raid im very surprised that they got a plane this big off a carrier back then an yes i know they were stripped of anything heavy an extra fuel carried but a marvalous plane indeed

Chris. Thanks for the complement. Every time I see one these taking off one of those Carriers I hold my breath. Some very brave men flew these birds.
