1:48 B-25 Mitchell "Doolittle Raider"
with Col. Dick Cole's signature (Jimmy Doolittle's co-pilot)
A gift for my friend, Al Benzing
At a CAF event in 2015, Dick Cole signed two painted 1:48 B-25 scale model wings. I'd make the models later. It was nearly his 100th birthday, so I gave him a tiny B-25 and he posed with it and my daughter, Katie.
The finished model with Col. Cole's signature.
Added weights to the nose and engines so it isn't a tail-sitter.
Just one figure in the cockpit. A young Dick Cole doing the pre-flight check.
Made some "broomsticks for tail guns"
"Mark Twain" bomb sight.
"Army pilots man your planes!"
Japanese friendship medals tied to the bombs.
A very happy Al Benzing with me.
