I've been accumulating B-26s for too long-it's time to knock one out. Actually, I picked up a pair of Hypercat resin cowls for one kit last week and I'm just a little inspired to build one. I actually have 2 of these kits: The first one came from someone who was looking for a Hasegawa Tomcat maybe 15 years ago? They were pretty cheap at my LHS (remember those?) and he was so happy with the price, he mailed me one of these as a bonus. The second one I believe I picked up at a now closed hobby shop in Reno on consignment for $24. And there's a third. And another... Here we have one I picked up some years ago on ebay. I wanted an original release in the hopes the fit issues would be better, and also in this box is one from many many years ago I tore apart to rebuild. I'm tossing the old rebuild out. Building three of these is pushing it and the stash is too big and life's too short for such things. In this box is both of the Special Edition kits: Along with a Squadron vac canopy I forgot I had and an old Microscale decal sheet. So, what I think I'll do is use the green styrene with the resin bits to build Murder Inc., a B-26B-10-MA of the 449BS/322BG. The color plate in Aircraft of the Aces tells us it's an unusual early 3 tone scheme which appears to be OD (top) over a medium green (sides) with NG bottom. I'll look into the details about that as the build progresses. I have almost a full tube of filler and some 80 grit sandpaper so if I end up staying home this weekend, I may just get started on it.
