I certainly agree with all previous comments. This one is turning out brilliantly. Please don’t screw this up. Lol. Humor.

I’m really enjoying this build. Well done.

Troy.

Patrick, doing an early strafer with lots of visible guns in the nose sure would look interesting! There are lots of options out there... I was just looking at a thread with a bunch of them yesterday. I'll see if I can find it for you.

 

EDIT: I was able to find it on Hyperscale, see here:

Progress has been slowed due to work, ahhh yes, the real or unreal world.... Anyway, I found another detail about earlier model B-25s, they have an extra piece of nose glazing that I didn't know about, what's funny to me is that it had a ball socket in it for a 30 cal. machinegun, I guess they needed an option for straffing straight down???LOL">http://ynQuDSt.jpg

Not too much progress right now, I am still pondering the idea of making an early strafer, have been cobbeling up a mount based on the photos I can find showing the mount. ">http://8jjhpO7.jpg

Kewl!   I like the little solid plate with the holes in it for the .50 cals.  That will make for a very interesting looking straffer config.
