I am building a 1/8th scale RC Ziroli and plan to model Tootsie. Any help on getting pics of the nose art, color codes, etc. would be great.

Was the nose art on only one side, or both? I only see pics of the left side nose.

Reason I am modeling it is I have had a picture of it that has been hanging up for years and I just love the color of it, even if it isn't military scheme, or even close, I just think it is unique enough to make a good model of.


Also if anyone has dome nice detail pics of the nose gear door, and anything else that would make modeling the plane easier and more scale like would be great.

Look at this YouTube video of Tootsie.

It is from 2011 and not in HD, but you can clearly see that she does not have nose art on the right side.

Good luck with your model,
Eric

Thanks, I had forgotten about that video, but never caught the beginning. Now if I can only get a clean picture of the nose art.

I notice that it appears to have a few extra windows in it, so have to try to get those as close to scale as possible. Sure wish someone knew the status of her, I found it is still registered, but haven't found any flight history the past couple years.

Are there any B-25 walk arounds that show detail of the gear doors? I know next year I plan to hit a few airshows where there will be some of these, but in the mean time any photos with detail will get me through the winter build on my plane.

Ted is a super cool guy, sadly the B-25 is pricey to insure and maintain - and so she has not flown in quite sometime. I would love to have her come to our airshow but the last time I talked to Ted the plane had not had an annual in a couple of years.

Tootsie is at Carson City Nevada airport, KCXP. I last saw it on display several years ago at their open house which is usually around Father's Day.

Is this N201L? If so it used to have a cool exec interior and layout.

Bit of a resurrection here - who owns "Tootsie" now - I see in the registry that YSM Enterprises ownes her now? And she is not on John's list of active B-25s.. . .

Tom, the reason for the registration change is that Tootsie was transferred to a family member. It hasn't gone anywhere.
