Unhappy Ziroli B25 rebuild 101"

Yep, almost two years in the making. 5 and 1/2 flights. Lost an engine at a bad time. Parts are now being cut to rebuild the nose. It'll be a slow rebuild as I have a Skyraider on the table now. Retracts, nav lights, turning top gun turret, panel lines, rivets... flew beautifully. No trim what so ever...

That is a bummer, I am glad you are rebuilding it...
I have to say though. That picture of it plowed into the weeds and brush.. it seemed like a colorized photo of old WW2 pictures... I immediately thought of all the people that never returned ... The second I saw that picture I had that feeling. My Great Uncle survived the war flying on B24 missions .....made me think of him as well..

Yes, Brave men they were..

Moving along on the repair. I'm going to try to get some sheeting on tonight after the front landing gear gets (re) mounted. The crew is happy I'm finally rebuilding!
