    If Rob gets it done........... I'll do a re-color for it............ promise!

    The Martin B-26 was called that and also called something else. Because the wings were a new type and very small it was called the "pregnant prostitue" because of the big fuselage and small wings that had "no visible means of support".

    Never heard of a nickname for the Douglas bird..........but having served in WWII, Korea and Viet Nam...........as well as in the Bay of Pigs fiasco(were it fougt against Cuban B-26 Invaders!) it record shows that it was a very well designed much needed aircraft!

    Ed Heinemann sure new what he was doing!

    B-26/a-26???

    Hi bugman77,
    B-26 was a bomber 'Marauder', but A-26 was an atacker 'Invader'.
    The pictures show, I think, A-26, but not B-26.
