Martin Maryland stencil placement


Recommended Posts

I'm building the Easter Express boxing of the 1/72 Martin Maryland.

 

The kit comes with stencils, but no instructions as to where they should go!

 

Any ideas for 5, 9 & 10?

At a guess, 6x data stencils (10) - props?

8  - look to be standard roundels for a Vichy version. 

5 - fuel tank?
 

Another option might be having a look at the Special Hobby kit instructions for the Maryland.

@Harry_the_Spider,

decal 10 are for the fuel tank fillers on the upper wings; decal 9 are not prop stencils- see linked photos below; decal 5 is a puzzler- it might be the port for replenishing the onboard oxygen supply. Best I can do- sorry!

Here is a link to some nice period Maryland photos that won't answer your decal questions, but might be useful for modeling details.

Glenn Martin 167 F had three tanks only, 2 wing tanks and 1 fuselage tank

I wonder if Decal 5 might be the plug-in location for a ground battery/generator connection?
