Product Description

The Douglas A-26 "Invader" light bomber, a follow-up airplane to the A-20 "Havoc", made its first flight on July 10, 1942. In November 1944, it went into combat over Europe. It was used for level bombing, ground strafing and rocket attacks. By the time production ended, 2,502 Invaders had been built.

The A-26 was redesignated the B-26 in 1948. During the Korean Conflict, the airplane entered combat once again, this time as a night intruder to harass North Korean supply lines.

Early in the Vietnam conflict, the Invader went into action for the third time. Also, the U.S.A.F. ordered 40 modified B-26B's having more powerful engines and increased structural strength. Designated the B-26K, the airplanes were designed for special air warfare missions. In 1966, the B-26K was redesignated the A-26A.

About this Handcrafted Wooden Model Aircraft:
This beautiful handmade airplane model is an authentic replica made from the finest grade of select kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. The model is made entirely by hand: From the handcarving of the aircraft fuselage, to the sanding of the aircraft's contours. Every part is assembled precisely into place. After shaping and sanding, the model passes through several stages of priming and sanding before it is hand painted to duplicate the actual colors, emblems, and insignias of the original historical aircraft. Finally, multiple coats of clear lacquer are applied to protect the artwork and provide an overall glossy finish.
