The Douglas A-26 Invader, first flown in July of 1942, was a light bomber and attack aircraft that saw service during World War II and several Cold War conflicts. The United States retired the Invader in 1972, though it did remain operational with other national militaries until 1980. The RB-26C was an unarmed photo reconnaissance variant carrying cameras and flash flares for night photography.
This 1/72 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model — a reproduction of an RB-26C operating with the 363rd TRW out of Shaw Air Force Base in 1955 — features that aircraft's signature black design and artwork, engraved panel lines, rotating propellers, detailed radial engines, an opening canopy, three removable pilot figures, a well-equipped cockpit and rear station, a glazed nose, optional-position landing gear, and a stylish presentation stand. Measures approximately 8¼" long with an 11¾" wingspan.
