Corgi US35305 USAAF North American B-25C-1 Mitchell Medium Bomber - "OH-7", 445th Bombardment Squadron, 321st Bombardment Group, Morocco, February 1943 (1:72 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 1:72 scale replica of a B-25C-1 Mitchell medium bomber was called "OH-7", and attached to the 445th Bombardment Squadron, 321st Bombardment Group, based at Oujda, French Morocco in February 1943. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "OH-7" - On February 14th, 1943, OH-7 was forced to make a wheels-up belly landing after suffering a complete loss of hydraulic fluid. The veteran bomber had been one of six from the 445th BS that had strafed and bombed Axis shipping intercepted in the southern Mediterranean just north of Libya, OH-7 having been badly damaged by flak during the attack.
