1:107 Scale Diecast Metal – Martin Corporation B-26 Marauder – Length: 6.25" Wingspan: 8”
This B-26 model is made to be displayed in the inflight configuration, there is no option for a landing gear. It is mostly made of metal and very heavy/dense. It is certainly not a toy and will not survive been played with or a fall. It has many guns and antennas sticking out and these are very fragile.
Although it is a small scale, the details are very impressive. From the photos one can see and appreciate the transparent cockpit windshield, as well as the other transparent parts in the different gun positions and view ports. Even the tail gun positions looks accurate and have gun barrels sticking out, in fact, all gun positions have their respective gun barrels showing. The propellers are free to rotate and very smooth. If one blows onto the front of the plane, the propellers start spinning. All engines are part of the wing assembly, which in turn is one single piece.
Since there is no option for a landing gear, a stand where the model can be attached for display is included and the model's info (type of airplane and scale).
The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. What really caught my attention, however, is the way the markings and coloring. Look at the photos and you will see very clear and crisp nose art and markings.
