Screaming Meemie
« on: February 10, 2020, 10:49:58 AM »
Thank you to Lyric1 for finding me the info needed to complete this, my first B-25C skin. Originally it was going to be based on a modified version of my B-25H template to save time but when I realised I could submit it in 2048 rather than 1024 res I decided to remake the whole thing from scratch.

"Screaming Meemie" was a B-25D of the 487th Bomb Squadron, itself part of the 340th Bomb Group. The 487th began its wartime service in 1943 supporting the Allied armies in Tunisia. For desert operations its Mitchells were painted in a scheme of Sand pink upper and grey lower surfaces. Later that year when the squadron moved to Sicily a partial coat of Olive Drab was applied to the upper surfaces of its aircraft to better camouflage them over the Southern European terrain. After Sicily, the 487th fought in the Italian and Corsican campaigns until the end of the war, exclusively using the B-25.

Absolutely amazing. Great work!
There must also be a flyable computer available for Nefarious to do FSO. So he doesn't keep talking about it for eight and a half hours on Friday night!
