A quick summary of a review I did on the Revell Mosquito last in comparison to the Tamiya Mosquito.
Both kits very detailed. The idea was bandied about among friends and not so friendly ones as well. Anyone remember the response whe[...]
So it has been a little while, but here I like to present my recent build of the B-26B Invader in use with the French Air Force in Vietnam 1955.
The B-26 Invaders used by the French in Vietnam were surplus American aircraft of which many had bee[...]
Saw that Greg Kittinger wants to do a Midway B-26. Here was my interpretation, done a couple of years ago. "Susie-Q" was an early bird with short wings and different tail gun position. Valom had a kit of it, it got crucified by the critics when [...]

When I was building plastic models in the 70s, Monogram kits were the state of the art.
I always dreamed of building on of their big bombers in 1:48, but was never able to do it.
They were too expensive for a kid with a meagre weekly allowance, [...]
My Monogram/Revell B-26 Marauder in 1/48 scale was presented at the recent Scale Model World 2014 in Telford with some success. Here are some more pics and the commentary to go with them.
B-26 was the plane that went from the nickname »Widowmake[...]
