    The template for the C is done and will be made available for public download after the Axis & Allies Paintworks "Tunisia" campaign and skins are released. The G will also be available; other than a few minor changes it's the same as the C.

    Faked (but more appropriate) exhaust stacks

    Big gun!

    J and H skins and templates will follow at some point. For folks with mods, I'm also working on a strafing-nose D.

    These are beautiful, Jarink! Where do you plan to release them?

    They will be posted at Axis & Allies Paintworks.

    I neglected to mention that these will feature mechanical layers by Buhli (plus a little of my own), who does excellent work.

    The ones I'm working on right now (mainly because they promise to need the fewest modifications for re-use with other skins) are "Hell's Bells" from the 499th BS and "Near Miss" from the 498th.

    Whoever came up with the idea for this paint job was a genius.

    You should get the TD guys to replace the current "uber green" skin that the B-25J has as default with this one. Looks really good

    Cool, looking forward to it. I really like your templates for the heavies.

    I did a bit of work the other day on some B-25s. These are still WIP; I should have downloads available soon. I'm slowly working on a full set of 345th BG skins as well.

    The J template is done except for one or two tiny details.

    OD version:

    Major revisions on the underwing access panels. Also, note optional strike camera window behind the bomb bay.

    Bare Metal:

    I tried a new metal technique that's actually a lot easier to replicate than what I've done before on my bomber skins. It's a little more of an oxidized look, but I think I can shine it up with a little extra work.

    I'm still waiting on the release of the Tunisia campaign before making the templates for the C/G available, but I will offer the D "strafer", J, and H templates for public download sometime soon.
    Say, in "two weeks"?

    OK, OK. I swear I'm someday going to finish working on all these skins!

    I decided I wanted to release some generics (mainly for mission builders) before I did detailed skin packs. I should have these packaged up and ready for d/l in the next couple of days.

    Some B-25Hs of the 1st Air Commando Group. There were only about 18 B-25Hs that served with the 1 ACG. I have enough info to create about 5-6 plus generics.
