  3. A-26/B-26 Invader Brass Undercarriage (for ICM) 1:48 Aerocraft Models To the joy and surprise of modellers ICM recently gave started a new line in A-26/B-26 Invade kits. These are large and impressive kit and a bit weighty Ali at Aerocraft has thought of this and has been busy at work creating this set to replace the kit parts in tough brass to alleviate any concerns. The set arrives in an unassuming ziplok bag, with three parts inside, all made from brass. With two main gear legs and the nose leg. Preparation of the brass parts will inv
  4. B-26C-50 Invader Korean War (48284) 1:48 ICM via Hannants The A-26 was built by Douglas back in WWII as their successor to the A-20 Havoc. Two types were designed, The C with a glass bomber nose and the B with a full metal nose filled with either 6 or 8 .50cal machine guns, which coupled with the three in each wing gave it quite a punch, deserving of the Strafer title. It also had a pair of turrets on the fuselage mid-upper and dorsal positions, which were both operated by a single gunner using a complex remote mechanism that flipped between the upper and lower
  5. B-26B/C Invader Decals Latin America Countries (D4803) 1:48 ICM via Hannants The brand new tool Invaders in 1:48 from those fine folks at ICM are really great kits. This set of additional decals has been produced for those aircraft which saw service on the Korean War. Invaders were some of the first aircraft to be involved flying at the time from their vases in Japan, and the last aircraft to conduct combat operations with the last mission just 24 minutes before the ceasefire was signed. In they accounted for an impressive 38,500 vehicles, 406 locomotives, 3,700

  8. B-26B-50 Invader Updates (for ICM) 1:48 Eduard ICM have given us a nice new Invader to replace all those old kits in our collective stashes, and it’s a very nice kit too, but if you want to take the detail to the next level (I hate that phrase!), you should have a look at these sets from masters of Photo-Etch (PE) Eduard. As usual with Eduard's PE and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between.

  10. Hi all and here's my latest result of sticking plastic bits together, Airfix's ancient A-26 Invader built up as Tanker 59. Along with its sister ship, Tanker 57, these were part of the firebombing fleet owned & flown by Lynch Air Tankers of Billings, Montana for the 1989 Steven Spielberg film, “Always”. The real a/c survived its firebombing career and is now in a museum in Texas. This was my first Civil build and was part of a tribute GB in memory of our late IPMS Ireland member and all-round gent, Don Whitaker who built beautiful Civil 1/444 jets and props. RIP Don. The bu
  11. A-26B Invader Update Sets (For Revell) 1:48 Eduard The old Monogram Invader is an oldie but goodie, and as such it's the detail that needs a hand-up to meet modern day requirements, with a welcome re-release early in 2018. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner, allowing you to get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions
  12. Hi all! After a very brief hiatus, the next colourful bird has rolled out of the paint shop. As you can see, she is a Douglas A-26B Invader, or correctly a TB-26B, as she was when operated by the Fuerza Aerea Chilena (Chilean Air force). Depicted as “849”, the last Invader delivered to Chile, she was a target tug. Formerly she was operated by the 2nd Target Tow Squadron, United States Air Force from Mitchell Field. See: http://www.hempsteadplains.com/2ndtow.htm. The tail emblem is from that unit. These last two Invaders (848 and 849) ended their operational days with 8 Grupo at An
  13. Calling all Invader experts! For a TB-26 was the gun laying apparatus in the rear section removed? Where the turrets blanked over with circular flat plates? I think from memory that the Airfix kit includes these plates? What are the gun arrangement options. Many I am looking to build have them set in a horizontal plane rather that the two vertical sets of 4 in the Airfix and Italeri kits. Thanks. Martin
  14. Does anyone out there are any references (images) for the TB-26 Invader, please? Martin

  16. I recently got some very kind replies to my request for information on the undersurface of a USAAF B-25J in the Mediterranean Theatre. I had thought of also doing the 1/72 Italeri kit of the Douglas A-26B in service in the Italian theatre as a companion to my MTO Hasegawa B-25J. The Italeri instructions offered decals for (amongst others) a Douglas A-26B, 44-34486, of the 47th Bomb Group in Italy in 1945. It had a bold red/range tail with the numbers '58' superimposed in black and yellow wingtips. The problem is that the Osprey book on the A-26 ('A-26 Units of World War 2') says th
  17. It's back down to small scale for me at present as house move is probable - so I don't want to risk stuff that will be easily damaged.This is a Dragon kit with two in one box one navy and one marines, both nicely equipped with 12 Rockeye cluster bombs each, plus fuel tanks. I've built the navy one undercarraige up as I intend to display it on a stand with a Navy Hornet(at some point in the future !!). My first Dragon kit and I was quite impressed with the build quality and how it went together. The hardest bit was hanging the bombs they still look a bit 'off' and the yellow decals which I
  18. Hi, chaps, Does anybody know, whether the invaders in the movie were just movie livery, or real planes got their role in the movie? Unfortunately, I lost the backup thanks to RAID failure to look even what I'm looking for..
  19. Douglas A-26 Invader. "Hard to Get" is an A-26 Serial Number 44-35710 displayed at The Cavanaugh Flight Museum, Addison, Texas. This is an airworthy aircraft. Pics thanks to GeorgeUSA.
  20. After its 1/48th H-75 Mohawk and F-86K ( http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/55146-148th-f-86k-sabre-dog-by-musthave-available/?hl=musthave ) kits, the French company MustHave is to release a brand new tool (and not a Revellogram reboxing!) 1/48th Douglas A-26B Invader kit.

  21. This has been an interesting build. First time I have used an airbrush. (I know I cheated by using only one color, but give me a break.) Have had an airbrush for the last 2, almost 3 years that SWMBO got me for Christmas. Just haven't had the gumption to use it. It went remarkably well and was fairly easy. I chose this model to begin on as, (1) it was a single color (2) the color to be finished in was the same color as the plastic (3) an old kit I have had for decades and have 2 others in the stash and (4) my next kit will be the 1/24 Airfix Mosquito and I really don't want to mess it up
  22. I have made the decision to experiment with my old/new airbrush on a model other than the 1/24 Airfix Mosquito being built. So, I dug out the old Monogram 1/48 A-26C Invader as I have the Promodeller version in the stash. Starting out slow and plan to do it in a gloss black finish. (Baby steps I know.) So, the shots of the box cover and sprues are: Okay, before I begin, a bit of a rant (I know, like I never do this.) All weekend I have been trying to upload pictures for this WIP. And all weekend, nothing but grief. I now can chalk it up to the wonderful Microsoft company that seem
  23. The Lauridsen collection is a growing airworthy collection of classic types that is currently based at Buckeye Municipal Airport in Arizona. It's planned to move the collection to a new purpose built facility at Gila Bend Municipal Airport shortly. During my visit there wasn't another sole in sight, no gates or barriers either. The Invader greats visitors as they arrive and isn't part of the collection so I guess it'll be staying at Buckeye when everything else moves. There's also an Avenger present but this was locked away in the hanger so it wasn't possible to get any shots. As a bonus wh
