Take advantage of the last opportunity to own an A-26 from Hobby Master, as this model represents the company's final such release!
The A-26 Invader, known as the B-26 between 1948 and 1965, was a light bomber serving the U.S. during World War II and numerous Cold War conflicts. It first saw service in August 1943 with the Fifth Air Force in the Southwest Pacific, also seeing duty with the Ninth Air Force in Europe the following year. It proved incredibly fast and versatile, able to carry twice its original specified bombload.
