What variant of the B-25 are you building? Looks like the nose may be the start of the B-25G.

Was wondering about the ghost figure in the cockpit until I figured out you had to keep it on its nose gear. Sure is looking good. Will be looking forward to your covering process and the grade of glass cloth you are using.

lol, yes that ghost is a cloth bag with lead shot in it. makes for a good weight.good guess..as far as the finish goes i am going to use .75oz cloth with finishing resin..a lot to do before that starts..had to place an order today for some contest grade 1/8" sheeting. the stuff i have left is just TO hard to get around the compound curves for the rest of the fuse and the nacelles

the contest balsa has shown up today from national balsa...initial inspection of the wood shows that it will be much easier to work with doing the complex curves of the lower fuse and the nacelles.worth the wait.
also the blocks will be for the stab tips, nose, and the back of the nacelle....still looking at it.18 guns total. got to be careful around this one

I was sorry to hear the Twin Otter went in. That was one of the nicest planes I have ever seen.

dont know the actual cause...the left engine quit while on a pass down the runway. right rudder was added to help correct and not much was needed being a large control surface...after the crash there was plenty of gas left in the tanks, both spark plugs fired fine from the ignition batteries and ignition modules, and both ignition swtches worked fine....the airplane on one engine was loosing altitude and it didnt have enough to clear the last row of trees...SIMCO (the owner and pilot) did all he could to get it around to attempt a landing.....just wasnt enough and caught the last row of trees at the top...close but not close enough...alll was put back to kit form....was not a good day...but we carry on...more airplanes are in the works...i think he is talking about a ziroli hellcat and i am in deep with this B-25............more to follow

Thanks Gene. By the way, those props dwarf the DLE-30! Going to look good on that bird.
