The B-26 Marauder was a World War II twin-engine medium bomber built by the Glenn L. Martin Company. After entering service with the U.S. Army, the aircraft received the reputation of a "Widowmaker" due to the early models' high rate of accidents during takeoff and landings. The B-26 became a safer aircraft once crews were re-trained and after aerodynamics modifications, these modifications helped tremendously and the B-26 ended WWII with the lowest loss rate of any USAAF bomber.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
