Overcoming a challenging service introduction due to its relatively high landing speed, the Martin B-26 Marauder went on to be regarded by many as the finest twin engined medium bomber of the Second World War, boasting some of the lowest combat loss rates in the US 8th and 9th Air Forces.

The relatively high take-off and landing speed of the new Martin B-26 Marauder posed several significant challenges for pilots converting to the aircraft, with a spate of early accidents earning the Marauder the unfortunate nickname of ‘Widow maker’. Following a number of design modification and a pilot re-training programme, the Marauder soon revealed itself to be an exceptional medium bomber and went on to post the lowest combat loss rates of any USAAF bomber of WWII. It is great to see this classic Airfix kit back in the range.
