Full Description

Made famous in the ‘Doolittle Raid’ the B-25 saw service throughout WW2 and beyond. Construction is lightweight from balsa, spruce and ply, producing a convenient, easily transportable 50” span model
On 6th June 2014 we’ll be commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, and here’s your chance to build a superb scale RC model of an aircraft that was heavily involved in operations that day. Another superb design by Phil Noel, this plan builds into a conveniently sized 1270mm wingspan model of the famous bomber. Lightweight construction produces a model that flies beautifully on twin electric motors. The model is of conventional all-wood construction, but a set of moulded engine cowlings and canopies are available. A Laser Cut Wood Pack is available that contains most of the shaped wood parts needed such as fuselage formers and wing ribs. This saves a great deal of time in the build and ensures accuracy, but you will need to buy additional sheet and strip wood to complete the model and an Additional Wood Pack is also available.

The North American B-25 Mitchell was one of the most successful medium bombers produced during WWII, with nearly 10000 of them eventually serving with the air forces of dozens of countries. In US service it was mainly used in the Pacific and Far East to attack Japanese ground and naval units. It is famous for being the aircraft used in the retaliatory attack on the Japanese mainland launched from the carrier USS Hornet in 1942, just four months after the unprovoked Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour that brought the USA into the war. During the campaign It was developed into an extremely effective ground attack aircraft capable of sinking enemy shipping. In Europe the RAF operated nearly 900 B-25s, initially using them for strategic bombing raids in German-occupied Europe, and later for close air support of allied forces during Operation Overlord – the D-Day landings. B-25s remained in service with some air forces long after the end of WWII, with the last being retired as late as the 1970’s. More than 100 aircraft survive today, with about 45 of them still airworthy.

What’s in a Short Kit? – A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.

What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack? – Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated laser cut wood pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modelling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.
