Hasegawa's 1/72 scale
Martin B-26 Marauder

by Tetsuro Matsuo


Martin B-26 Marauder


Hasegawa's 1/72 scale B-26B Marauder is available online from Squadron.com




Here is Hasegawa’s 1/72 scale B-26 Marauder. I spend about 5 months building this kit.

The main modifications are as follows.

  • I refined the port-side engines using thin rod, wire and solder lines



  • I added various scratch built parts to the inside of the fuselage & turrets

  • On the outside surface, I thinned the panel lines, reproduced the overlapping between the panels by piling up the instant adhesive, and added rivets by using the Hasegawa etching saw



  • All of the clear parts was replaced with home made parts.



  • Nose-art and all markings other than the stencils on the propeller blades are painted.

  • The flaps were dropped.



I did not use any after market parts at all.
