Revell 1/48 A-26B Invader

February 10, 2024 · in Aviation · · 12 · 333

This build was the Invader. It was detailed with Eduard photo etch detail sets for the cockpit and the bomb bay. I also used the SAC metal landing gear set. The scheme is the “Maggie's Drawers” of the 416th BG – 671st BS – 9th AF that was flown during 1944/1945 at the Laon/Athies Airfield, France. The decal set is sold by Kits World Decals.

All the details and photos from the start to finish can be seen in the build log at:
