Did the B-25B do anything besides the doolittle raid? I am wondering about any alternative markings for this version.

Thanks,

Chris

Still looking for other alternatives? Add RAF service. Warbird Tech #12 page 80 has FK-161 in RAF camo. Other B-25B's in RAF service, 22 of them FK162/183, were assigned to 111 Opn. Training Unit, Bahamas. This according the Avery. Perhaps some here can link to or provide pics of these aircraft.

While I really appreciate the earlier responses, the problem is that I am hoping for a combat aircraft. I don't usually do training or wargames subjects.

Thanks AGAIN!

The 3rd ARON flew active anti-sub missions in the B-25B from Dover, Delaware. The history states:

"The 'Bat Out of Hell' flew its missions from Dover until February 27th, 1943."

The USAFHRA has a very nice yearbook with the Atlantic schemes online here:

Get a load of the A-29 in the background as well!

That would take care of the issue and I have a serious soft spot for strafers!

Thanks,

O.D. over white like the B-25? OR is the white painted over a disruptive camouflage of dark earth and dark green? It appears to be a disruptive shadow shade camouflage aft of the cockpit and on top of the nacelle.....

This was right after the onset of the war.
