Germany's 1/48 scale B-26B/G Marauder is available online from
Here is my Monogram 1/48 scale B-26. This model was
built in 1985 or 1986.
The model represents a B-26 B-4MA serial number
4117981, during the spring of 1943 and based in Algeria. This is the
first Shark mouthed Marauder, nicknamed " The Shark" belonging to the
444th Bomb Squadron.
The airplane was destroyed in a crash landing on
May 23, 1943 after a raid on Sicily.
The wing span has been reduced by a scale six feet. The flaps have been
filled and re-scribed as the short winged B-26 had split flaps.
The vertical tail has been shortened, the beam gun
hatches re-positioned, the early style tail guns are installed. There is
a torpedo rack added on the centerline in the area of the bomb bay.
This is one of my first efforts at sanding off
raised panel lines and re-scribing.
For an old model it still looks reasonably presentable.
