Though someone would be interested in my B-25 conversion. I decided to get rid of the front greenhouse canopy and build a strafing B-25. First off I started gluing together some balsa blocks to form the new nose. Then got out the razor plane and started shaping the nose. Talk about alot of shavings!! Finally got the basic shape down and then started sanding to get the final shape. After I was happy with the shape I covered the nose with ultracote, not to impressed with the color match. Most of it will be covered with nose art. I attached a dowel in the lower portion of the nose and installed some magnets in the upper. Now I just waiting on some guns for the nose and decals.

I am wondering if anyone is using the castle creations cap pack on their electric setup. I was reading that when the battery cannot be connected directly to the esc, you should install a cap pack inline. Also, in the manual, it does not state anything about needing battery extensions to hook the battery to the esc. So, did everyone have to built extensions to do this?

You should run the caps if you excessive voltage ripple which generally comes from long battery leads. Over 12" from esc to battery is long I think. If you have castle ice controllers, you can check the ripple voltage by downloading the log files. If you jockey the throttle a lot, you will get more ripple. I have flown edfs with 18" plus leads with no troubles, but generally I am full, cruise or off settings. 3D guys will get all sorts of ripple due to them constantly working the throttle.

Cool conversion. I am going to do m mine with the gun nose, but glass and cover with flight metal.

I am running E-flite 60 esc's. I dont think I can download anything from them. The leads are going to be approx. 12 inches. I sure I will be flying scale, not alot of throttle variance.

I would not worry about it if it was me. With a warbird, we just don't fly like that on the throttles. Some folks like to 'blip' the throttles while taxiing, that would be the only time I could see it causing any troubles. I also tend to think that it is more harmful if you are running a high amp and high voltage system, ie 12s @100+ amps.

Hey 21onen, have you found those sheet in your Toronto store ...
Hope you did and that you are working hard to make them fit the way you want on your Mitchell mate ...

Mission to Rabaul - Nonstop action in the South West Pacific 1943
All kind of bombers in this footage doc.

You`ll see some low bomb run`s from the Mitchell, also low level Altitude
pass near the beach while making the use of those wonderfull 50.cal machine
guns against Jap in 1943.

Rabaul, a large natural harbor on the eastern end of the huge Island of New Britain (located northeast of New Guinea in the Southwest Pacific) was an essential strategic linchpin for the Japanese from which they could project their forces throughout the region. They poured tens of thousands of troops, hundreds of airplanes, and thousands of tons of supplies and material into this base to make it a mighty fortress. The Allies' brilliant solution to the Rabaul conundrum was to isolate it, slowly starve it, and bypass it -- rather than assault it directly.

This dramatic, high impact documentary film shows some of the most memorable, exciting, and extensive footage of 5th Air Force B-25G bombers conducting tree top level attacks with machine guns and delayed action bombs to come out of World War 2 .The first step in the reduction of Rabaul was the seizure of a string of Japanese bases along the Northeast coast of New Guinea.

The film focuses on the decisive and revolutionary impact of the air component in the strategy, including high & low level attacks, parachute drops, and resupply, accompanied by a magnificent musical score drawn from Holst's "The Planets." You're literally sitting in the cockpit or in the tail gunners seat watching amazing low level attack runs. You'll also see P-38s, A-20s, B-25s and B-24 cooperating with US Australian and New Zealand Forces securing forward air bases to strike against Rabaul and for the invasion of New Britain. "Mission to Rabaul" shows how each piece of this classic strategy culminated inevitably in the first escorted, massed bomber strike on Rabaul on 12th October, 1943 an essential goal in the reduction of Japanese defenses.

New Guinea Campaign: Air Operations Lae-Salamaua - Restored 1943


This action packed film covers a key battle of the oft overlooked 1943 New Guinea campaign in the South Pacific. General Douglas MacArthur and his staff put together a brilliant combined arms strategy that utilized Air Power as a key element to leap frog over rugged jungle terrain and isolate and destroy Japanese strongholds. For a larger strategic over view of the campaign, see "Mission to Rabaul"


While tough Australian jungle fighters spearheaded the frontal ground assault, American paratroopers accompanied by Aussie light artillery volunteers, dropped on, seized & secured a Japanese air base behind enemy lines so that an Australian division could be ferried in on C-47s and attack the enemy from the rear. This film effectively uses maps & illustrations to show the strategy and tactics used in this this classic battle. In this almost impassable terrain, that made transport of heavy guns slow and difficult, air power functioned as "flying artillery." You'll see spectacular in cockpit views of B-25 Mitchell medium bombers making strafing runs on Japanese bases at tree top level as well as some of the first ever "on the deck" tail gunner views of delayed action and "para frag" bombs dropping & exploding right behind the hedge hopping Mitchells. Some nice A-20, B-24 & P-38 action footage too!

Don't have the guns installed in these pics. I didnt like the tubes that come with, so I ordered the TF B-25 guns and installed them. They look really good. Just have to paint the front of the cowls and balance. Then she's ready to go.

Just picked up a Hangar 9 B-25 over the weekend, NIB with the .36 already installed. I decided to go with the Eflgiht 90-120 tricycle gear, anyone installed them? how did they work for you guys?

Congrat on your new bomber purchase YAK !

You got the 36 powerplant on yours,
For my part using the EFlite 46 as powerplant for more power for the weight it will become of that flying machine.

For my part I will keep the Robart air Retract for the well done struts HEAVY DUTY it provide on this aircraft..
As the conversion electric Lock&Down does for Robart are a little to expensive at the moment for me ...

Good luck on your build and dont forget to show us your making Bomber mate YAK !

Looking foward on your build ...

Cheers !

I just purchased the Hangar 9 B25 this spring and am almost ready to take it for the maiden voyage. I powered it with two O.S. 46 nitro engines and am anxious to take it out. My only question is where can I find replacement canopy's? Does H9 even make them any longer? No luck on Amazon or Ebay so far. Am thinking about making the nose canopy a solid piece unless anyone has another idea. Thanks! This thread has been very informative as I was building the plane.
