 The Greenhouse version is presently the only available version. (Gunship shown above)

     With a Jack Devine model, much of the work has already been done for you. Imagine opening the boxes and finding a fully-formed foam frame waiting there for you!  You won't have to imagine what your model is going to look like framed up.  The frame is done, the shape is already complete!  All that's left to do is follow the easy video instructions for capping, sheeting, and installing some hard points like a firewall and landing gear blocks, and your model is ready for gear and finish!  On a model the size of a B-25, you'll realize how quickly you can be in the air compared to a stick-built model.  There's just no comparison in building time, a Jack Devine model builds faster every time!
Break the "Weight Barrier" that has existed between R/C modelers and great flying warbirds for so long!!
The 106" wingspan Jack Devine Giant-Scale B-25 Mitchell Bomber R/C model kit has super-light wingloading and exceptional strength and durability due to Jack Devine's trademark foam building technology.  Jack Devine gives you a Medium Bomber guaranteed to FLY!    This Jack Devine B-25 Mitchell model will lend itself especially well to scale endeavors.   The strength and lightness means that you can add a lot of detail and still have a plane that flies and lands light!  The best of both worlds!  
  

   The B-25 Mitchell was named after General Billy Mitchell, in honor of the fact that he was court-marshaled in 1924 for his vociferous belief in Air Power as a military instrument in the future.  This bomber was created and stood as a tribute to his vision, which America should have paid more attention to.  Fortunately, some quieter proponents of air power carried Mitchell's vision forward, advancing military aircraft technology until Pearl Harbor showed America that we cannot let our guard down, and that Billy Mitchell was right all along.  After the American war effort was set in motion, the President insisted that we find a way to bomb Japan immediately as retribution for Pearl Harbor.  The plan materialized, and woven into the fabric of the plan was the B-25 Mitchell Medium Bomber.  They were stripped down, with ventral turrets removed to accommodate more fuel weight, and rear guns removed and replaced by broomsticks painted black!  These bold moves enabled them to stretch their range so that they could bomb the Japanese mainland.  On April 18th, 1942, sixteen B-25's flew off the deck of the aircraft carrier Hornet, led by Jimmy Dolittle.  They were successful, and bombed Tokyo as planned.  Carrying just four bombs each, this mission was more representative than devastating to Tokyo, but the point had been made: This was just the beginning.  Their refueling point was badly obscured, however, and they had no choice but to attempt completion of the run with low fuel reserves, and one by one, the B-25's dropped along the way.  All sixteen planes were lost, although many of the crewmembers made it safely home.  Several died, several were captured, and at least four died as POW's.  But the sacrifices of these brave men earned them the name of Dolittle's Raiders, and thrust the B-25 into the bright light of fame from that day on, and the B-25 was subsequently used extensively in every theatre of WW II.

    It comes with our instructional video to help you build it easily.  The video guides you through the capping and sheeting of all foam pieces, and the gearing up for hardware, mounts, etc.  Are you wondering about the processes involved?  This website also has building articles filled with a variety of tips and techniques to help answer many of your construction questions, both now and after you start building your Jack Devine model!  

    The wings have pre-cut control surfaces and flaps, servo pockets, and wire channels. Included is all of the balsa you will need for sheeting, a generous hardware package consisting of hardware, landing gear, and fiberglass cowlings and Lexan canopies are included as well.  Cutting for retracts is optional.  Mains use Robart Retracts with 5 1/2"wheels, nose gear uses Robart Retract with 3 1/2" wheel.

Building time:  This kit can be built in as little as 35 hours.

Flying skills required:  Average Flyer or above.
