A few jaegers from the Hat box that I am working on. Not exactly sure what I am going to do with them. I have some Russians to paint as well.

I just could not resist the B25s. Why do US bombers of WWII just look so…I hate the use of this word these days…..it was our word…..but it is ….cool?


Yes, your Jaegers are equally low temperature, but you cannot beat a Mitchell B25

As Matt Smith might have said "54s are cool"

And the B25 was nice, but for a kid it had to be the Lanc or the B17. Fantastic box artwork

B17G did take some beating I admit. It almost created the word "Iconic".


Lancasters were a bit…the same….black, green, dark earth…..OK drop the dorsal turret, add a ventral turret, or drop something weighing 22,000 lbs…blimey 22,000 lbs…

But if you post a link to summat that is far better than you intended to show…..your fault!

I was 4 when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. My dad ran the projector at one of our 3 movie houses, so I spent Saturday matinee hours enjoying the cool tanks and planes.
I saw the 16 Mitchells leave the US Carrier for the bombing run on Japan, mere months after Pearl Harbor.

The Mitchell with the 8 .50 caliber M2's in the nose must have been one that skip-bombed Japanese shipping. They also has a modification carrying a 75mm pack Howitzer in the nose!

I did not know it at the time, but the British bombers did not carry a co-pilot, nor did they have a lower ball turret. Most of the night-bombing losses were to German twin motor planes that were sitting ducks by day. Not unlike our Grant and Lee tanks that were somewhat effective against Rommel, then obsolete, then became the Allied "Tiger Tanks" against the Japanese!
