Ziroli B-25 Sloper


I have always liked the Mitchell B-25 bomber and felt the need to make one as a sloper. Following the lead of a few other fellow slopers I decided to go big. So here are a few shots of what I have done so far. The goal is to be finished by May 2011 the ISR Slope Festival.

Ziroli B-25 Sloper


I decide not to use the stringer and former style to build this. I knew I wouldn't be able to keep all those wood pieces in line so I cheated.

I used a sheet of 1/8th inch plywood and cut two side views and two top views. The using a hot wire bow I cut it out. I used some bamboo skewers to keep it all together and it came out square.

Took the B-25 to Carl's home to receive some technical advice.

A comparison of fuses. In the front is TWINBOOM's FW 190, then Microrotors Dauntless and my B-25. Should have some fun with these at the festival.

Wondering what became of this plane. As a sloper named Mitchell, I will have one of these some day.
