Have you ever considered building a multi‑engine scale model but for some reason the project seemed too complicated or not worth the trouble required. Well sweep off the old workbench and dig out the glue pot, because it's as simple as any single‑engine job you ever made.
This was my first multi‑engine and was so successful (in the money three times in three contests) and handled so beautifully that I plan to build multi‑engine scales from now on.
The Douglas B‑26 (designation prior to 1949 was A‑26; the Martin wartime B‑26 Marauder was dropped from service in 1945) is an all‑metal, two‑engine mid wing fighter‑bomber' and ground support airplane carrying a crew of three or four depending on its mission. With a bomber nose it is used for low and medium altitude bombing. This version mounts two .50 caliber m.g.'s in the nose and four .50 caliber m.g.'s in two remote controlled turrets in the rear of the ship. It flies at speeds in excess of 350 mph. The fighter version mounts .50 caliber m.g.'s in the, R/C turrets and three in each wing and eight in the nose, in addition to bombs and numerous rockets.. This is the version on which this model was based.
Thank you or looking
