out-perform existing single-engine types.

gun sights. While a great deal of work has been done (about 90% done), there is
still a little assembly for you to do. Included is also a illustrated
instruction manual. Flight performance is very good with the .52 engines that we
recommend and the plane is easy to fly. Landings are slow and soft. Five

Brief history: The B-25 was the
first multi engine bomber designed for the United States' Army Air Corps before
the Second World War and made immortal on April 18, 1942, when it became the
first United States aircraft to bomb the Japanese mainland. They were the
heaviest aircraft at the time to be flown from a ship at sea. The original
design had shoulder-mounted wings and a crew of three in a narrow fuselage. The
North American company had never designed a multi-engine bomber before.
The USAAC then decided its new bomber would need a much larger payload -- double
the original specifications. North American designers dropped the wing to the
aircraft's mid-section, and widened the fuselage so the pilot and co-pilot could
sit side-by-side. They also improved the cockpit.
First impressions are
important, and at first glance, the B-25J gooks great. The quality of the wood
is very good, and the construction is excellent. The Canopy, Superchargers and
Air Scoops are all vacu-formed plastic, and the Cowls are made of a good sturdy
fiberglass. The overall construction and quality of this airframe is very good.
