    B-25 Markings

    I'm trying to locate the factory spec's relating to size, location and text
    copy pertaining to all factory applied markings on the B-25 Mitchell.

    This would included national insignia, serial numbers, warning stencils,
    access panels, etc.



    Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Paul,

    Your posting is much appreciated, this is one book I seem to have missed.
    Could you let me know the publisher, author and ISBN? I'd like to add this
    volume to my reference library.

    Many thanks,
    Bob

    Hi Bob,

    I dont beleive there is a ISBN number for this book because it was published in 1960. Here is the link to amazon and more details about the book though currently they are out.

    Amazon.com: Ducimus books limited B-25: Books

    Hope this helps.

    Paul,

    This book predates the use of ISBN's by six years, but now that I know
    the publisher and date of printing I can start a search for this volume.

    Thanks again for your assistance with this matter.
    Bob

    Hi Bob remember me ? I've got 10 of these books from E-Bay over the last few years....
    P-47, P-51, B-17, B-29, B-24, A-20, B-25, P-38, B-26 and British a/c in USAAF service.Very useful for stuff like stencils and national insignia.
    Ducimus also do a good series on RAF colours Northern Europe.
    That "Causeway" is still bugging me; did you see the last map I posted on AAF ? Regards Nick

    Marine b-25 Action

    Does anyone have any photos or weblinks for sites covering the use of B-25s by the Marines on island suppression in the Pacific. My dad was a member of one of these squadrons. How to find out more info?

    Those are great books, used to own one on U.S. aircraft in UK service, don't know what happened to that, probably worth a pretty penny by now.
