Armour Collection B11E393 USAAF North American B-25J Mitchell Medium Bomber - "Apache Princess", 501st Bombardment Squadron, 345th Bombardment Group, Tacloban, Leyte, Phillipines, January 1945 (1:48 Scale) "In the future, war will be waged essentially against the unarmed populations of the cities and great industrial centers."
- Italian General Giulio Douhet

Built by North American, with no previous experience on multi-engined aircraft, the B-25 Mitchell proved to be one of the most versatile combat aircraft to see action in World War II. So impressed with what they saw on the drawing board, the USAAC ordered 184 aircraft -- to be designated the B-25 -- before metal had even been cut on a revised design.

Christened the Mitchell after maverick army bomber proponent William 'Billy' Mitchell, the bomber fought not only with the USAAF in the Pacific and ETO/MTO, but also with US Navy/Marine Corps, British, Dutch and Australian units. By war's end, the veteran Mitchell had outlasted its rivals from Douglas and Martin to become the most prolific American medium bomber of the conflict. Today some 34 remain airworthy across the globe.

This particular 1:48 scale replica of a B-25J bomber, nicknamed "Apache Princess" was flown by the 501st Bombardment Squadron, 345th Bombardment Group, based at Tacloban, Leyte in the Phillipines during January 1945. Sold Out!
