Strombecker Martin B-26 Medium Bomber - Spotter Model Series, 1/72, S-50

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Sold   

Very rare 1940s wartime 'Spotter Model' in the 'National Defense Model Series.' Strombecker specifically made this line of 1/72 scale kits to fit the 'Official National Spotter or Recognition Program' for civilians and the armed forces for training and identification. This is a high quality, highly prefabricated kit of western pine hardwood. The parts are almost completely carved - only final sanding is needed! Includes perfectly carved and smooth fuselage, perfect and completely finished engine nacelles, wings cut and carved to shape including airfoil, all other parts cut to shape (and many of them completely finished), a factory sealed envelope including the smaller parts, full color insignia sheet, Strombecker Model Makers Club Application Form, CASCO glue, two types of sandpaper, color "How To Win The War" sheet and extensive & detailed assembly instructions. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes insignia and instructions.

It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Please note that the kit did not come with decals and the instructions are inside the header. 'BI' stood for Blizhnii Istrebitel, which was 'close-range fighter' in Russian. Obviously, it also stood for the last names of the designers. The program was the Soviet Union's effort to produce a low cost rocket interceptor. The airplane flew and flew well, but it was plagued by engine issues, corrosion from nitric acid, and eventually tail flutter at high speeds that caused the loss of the most experienced test pilot, Grigory Yakovlevich Bakhchivandzhi. The early development started in 1938, with the first flights in 1940. The aircraft underwent a series of engine improvements and was still testing through 1945. The aircraft never entered series production. Bi-1 through BI-9 were built.
