Darren Baker takes a look at the A-26B-15 Invader from ICM in 1/48th scale and performs a partial build to check on its build ability.

Great review, Darren. The partial build is most helpful. I would like to get one and find a crew for it. I'm hoping they follow this up with an A-20.

Hi Darren, did you finish this build ? I noticed an issue when looking over things. Step 80 in the instructions would have attach part E34 to the forward engine assembly before installing the exhausts so you need two parts E34, one for each engine but there is only one part E34 on the sprue.

It has been on a slow burn but I will check this out and get back to you.

OK, I figured it out, I missed the "no glue" icon, E34 is just an alignment tool for the exhausts and doesn't stay on the engine, pretty clever of ICM.
