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 [...]
The U.S. Navy and Marines operated trainer/target tug Marauders as the JM-1 (equivalent to the AT-23B/TB-26C). My subject is JM-1, Bu No 66759 of VJ-12 serving in the Pacific. Puttied up the top turret hole and added a patch where the nose gun w[...]

Finally got this one finished. It's fitted out with some Hasegawa gun pods, otherwise it's OOB.

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[...]

This aircraft is reputed to be the “scruffiest” Marauder of them all and had there been a contest for the worst one it would have won. I have shown wear on this model but it is nothing compared to photos of the real airplane. I used Aero Master [...]
