^ That sums it up rather nicely!  ;D

Triple-fuselage triplane? Tandem wings? Push/pull engine nacelles? The possibilities are endless... :icon_surprised:

Been looking at picture and contemplating.  Not coming up with anything..........
Of course Brian has those rare exclusive aviation history books for reference.  No doubt will find something not yet modeled.

I have the Monogram 1/48th B-25 on the shelf with no idea what to do with it. Of course I could build it OOB.  :icon_crap:

Overall gloss sea blue with folding wings and arrestor hook.  Arm it with any combination of rockets, bombs, torpedos, or mines and put it in markings for a former VT squadron.
