    I was wondering if any one had some additional information on these planes I have a couple of books that make reference show photos of these aircaft. Queen of the midnight skies as well as B-25 Mitchell the ultimate look. Any other pictures would be great. Thanks.

    Thanks for the link Micdrow appreciate it. I am looking to do a skin for a combat sim using the 418TH B25H. There is some question as to the colour of these planes some sources list them as all black others as standard OD/NG. The colour photos are a little to grainey to be sure the black white pictures I cant see a line where the two colour's meet. Also this squadron ditched the 75mm placed two 50 cals in it's place. Also they did away with the top turret these are the only b25h's that added a co pilot.

    Thanks for the post. I was asking about B-25H used as night fighters in an earlier thread. The little information I had said they were painted all black. I did not know that the top turrent was removed.

    FYI, that is masking tape around the armour plate. The weather in the Pacific would cause the different metal types to corrode when the plate made contact with the skin.

    Managed to locate Mr Raymond Duethman who is in the above photos and was a member of the 418TH NFS he helped with the colours of his plane. Excuse the 75mm cannon top turret as they are hard programed in on the flight Sim it was made for cant get around that.
