Hobby Master - HA3202
Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA3202 Douglas B-26C Invader 37th BS, 17th BG, USAF Pusan, Korea 1952 Douglas Invader A-26 Was Re-Designated B-26 in June 1948. 1/72 Scale Diecast Model, Size: 11.75" Wingspan & 8.25" Long, Optional Up & Down Landing Gear, Armaments & Display Stand Are Included.

In 1941 Douglas Aircraft Company began work on their twin-engine medium-bomber A-26 Invader. By the end of production there were 2,452 aircraft produced for all variants. The A-26/B-26 was the only U.S. bomber to take part in three wars, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. The confusion with the use of the designation B-26 began when the Martin B-26 Marauder was retired and in 1948 the USAF dropped the A (Attack) designator so the Douglas A-26 Invader became the B-26 Invader. The A-26 made its first European appearance in late 1944. Primary Role: Light Bomber.

During the Korean War the 3rd BG and the 17th BG were formed. The 17th BG numbered its squadrons 34th, 37th and 95th BS. In the beginning the 3rd and 17th BG flew both day and night missions but as the war progressed they only flew night missions. By the end of the Korean War the two BGs had 55,000 interdiction sorties and credited with the destruction of 38,500 enemy vehicles, 3,700 railway cars, 406 locomotives and seven aircraft. A total of 226 B-26s were lost from all squadrons of which only 56 were accredited to enemy action.
