Hello my friends!

Happy new year to all!!!

At this time I show my last project, finish exact in december 31.

The subject is a Martin 139WH-3 (or Martin 166) a export version of famous USAAC Martin B-10, used in Sumatra by Royal Army Air Corps of East Nederland Indies (ML-KNIL) in time of japanese invasion in 1942.

The dutch flying Martin 139 WH-2 and 3 gallantly against japan's because they knew about obsolence of the old bomber at this time, many shoot dow of AA fire and in the hand of IJN A6M "Zero".

My model is a repaint and conversion of FG B-10 designed by Aaron Murphy, to made a Martin 139WH-3 representation. This most diverse feature in this version is a long canopy like a Greenhouse.

Thank's so I advice the early version of this kit (BW versions and versions) is a many errors, Aaron send a new model to fit, the another situation is a canopy and turret in both versions is oversized in height.

My next version of B-10 is a Martin 139WAN of Armada Argentina (Argentina Navy) I made this repaint at the moment.

Cheers!

Nice! I have been wondering what a model of this type would be like to build ever since my father finished the FG B-10! If it would not be too much trouble, I would like to try this?
