A Super Store for B-26 Marauder and other aircraft models. World War 2
Bomber Airplane Models, Die Cast Aircraft Models, Balsa Wood Airplane Kits, both
flying models and Wooden Display Aircraft Models. It's interesting because
I have just been working on the Japanese Betty Bomber Exhibit
pages on the web
site and the Betty Bomber looks very much like the B-26 Marauder. Look at
the pictures of the aircraft models on this page and read the history and
historical descriptions of the B-26 Marauder for a great study guide about World
War 2 military aviation both in Europe and in the Pacific.
