1/48 Monogram XJD-1 Target Tug

I was searching the internet for photos of this aircraft when I first encountered I signed up right away, and this is the first model I’ve completed as a member. My model represents one of two A-26C Invaders aircraft the Navy got from the Army in 1945, redesignated as XJD-1 (Bu 57991). It is out of the box, other than filling in the top turret opening. I painted it with Testers Yellow rattle can and Model Master Gloss Sea Blue applied with an airbrush. I hope you like it.

  7. A great build, looks nice in that scheme!

  8. Robert, this is a great 1st project! Welcome to iModeler! I LOVE the A-26 aircraft … they are one of the most handsome prop aircraft of the WWII period (and later) EVER made. To me it ranks up there with the Mosquito and the Tigercat twin-engined speedsters! Interesting paint scheme, too – you did a great job of it.


  9. Nicely done Robert, she looks good in yellow.

  10. A very nice rendition of the Invader. Welcome aboard!

  11. Fantastic, now I have to get one. The Testors rattle can is exactly what I used on my JM-1
