The Wittemann-Lewis NBL-1 "Barling Bomber" was a 1920s experimental strategic bomber. Known as "Mitchell's Folly" it was considered a failure at the time. It did, however, influence the design of future bombers according to General "Hap" Arnold.

Nice ventral study of a B-25B.  There's the (useless) unmanned belly turret and dorsal turret behind the wing.  Also no manned tail turret or waist positions.

The color change is OKish but don't know why P-3C rather than something like F-4 or F-2.

Better for than against. Never disregard Pascal's Wager because Murphy will always find a way to get at you.
