That's been on most peoples wish list for ages.  Great news.   I'm now doing more larger scale models, hopefully someone will come along and do this in 32nd!

Saw this somewhere else and it is great and exciting news. I think I have a couple of update sets for my Monogram kit so now I can use that kit for something else. ICM should do a great job.

Great news. If 48282 is a Vietnam era invader I will be eager to get one.

According to Hannants website, ICM will be releasing kits of the WWII Invader and a Korean War Invader. However, I would not be surprised at all if they then release a Vietnam Invader at a later date, even if it requires substantial additional molding. Just look what they have done with their Foxbat & Ju-88 kits, et al.

 

What I hope for is that ICM shoots for the moon and also comes out with a B-26 Marauder, to replace the venerable Revellogram kit. Who knows,  if they go that route maybe they'll even go for the B-17, B-24 & B-29!

In Vietnam they started with standard A26 bombers (farmgate) and later went to the A26k. Personally I want all of them! Korea, WWII, and both RVN airframes!

I see that now.  I just did not read carefully enough. 😫

Looks good!  Not sure how many were still flying in Korea with the original flat top canopy and also carrying the ventral turret.  Hopefully it will include the plug for the lower turret and the bulged canopy in the box.

Here is a look inside the bomb bay of a B-26 in Korea:

note what looks like a fuel tank in the forward section of the bay.  Here is the link for the site:

more images of the B-26 can be found by clicking the thumbnail under Related images, just keep on clicking as there are  several scattered in there.

Are both early and late canopies included or is it just an open and closed (early option) ?

I too will wait for the K. I like that they did not go the vinyl tires route too.

 

I have a couple of decal sheets for K versions so looking forward to using them.

Is the window for the rear gunners station the wrong size/orientation?

Shouldn't the window be vertical, not horizontal?

Nice catch Scott. I wonder if there are 2 different versions. Time for me to do some research.
