One of the most influential military aircraft in history, the A-26 Invader (known as the B-26 from 1948 to 1965) is the only light bomber to serve in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. It was an incredibly rugged and versatile warbird, able to carry twice the initial specified bombload, oftentimes carrying more weaponry than the much larger B-17 Flying Fortress. Nearly 2,500 were manufactured and it remained in limited service through the early 1980s.
This 1/72 scale, die cast model — a Hobby Master replica of an Invader named "Monie" flown by 1st Lt. Robert Mikesh during the Korean War — features that aircraft's signature pin-up nose art, engraved panel lines, a glazed canopy and nose, removable crew figures, a well-equipped cockpit and bombardier/radar stations, detailed radial engines, rotating propellers, optional-position landing gear, authentic markings, and a stylish mid-flight display stand. Measures approximately 8¼" long with an 11¼" wingspan.
