Monogram 1/48 B-26 Marauder….City of Sherman

February 17, 2013 · in Aviation · · 4 · 2.1K

This aircraft depicts "City of Sherman" Piloted by Lt. Paul H. Phillips of Sherman Texas, my home town. "City of Sherman" was with the 323BG/456BS. The kit was built straight from the box except True Detail wheels and custom made decals from an ALPS printer (thanks Barney Kable). The Tail numbers came from a Aeromaster sheet. This one is no longer at my house...I donated it to the Perrin AFB museum in Denison, which is just about 3 or 4 miles from my house...Its Grayson Co Airport now but use to be Perrin father was stationed there twice in his career...When he was there the first time they were flying F-86L aircraft then the next tour was with F-102's...

  1. that's a beauty

  2. That's a really well done model, clean and neat. We go to Sherman, Tx occasionally to visit our grandson and his family living there. He is a deputy sheriff in Grayson County. I will try to visit that museum next visit.

  3. Nice Build. I try to stop by the museum on my way back home every chance I get. Don't you have other acft donated there?

  4. Not yet...I have an F-102 with Perrin markings in the works and also an F-86L. I also need to get a T-33. when I build those I will most likely donate them as well.
