WingXL Announces Their First Release – 1/32 Martin B-26 Marauder

March 1, 2012

While the modeling world – or portions of it – await the impending release of the massive H-K Models 1/32 B-25J Mitchell later this month, the other half of the Wingscale debacle appears to be moving forward as well.

Rather than compete head-on with a 1/32 B-25 of its own (a B-25C/D is planned), WingXL will start things off with another twin-engined medium bomber, the Martin B-26B/C Marauder.

While there aren’t any test shots, prices, or other firm release information as of yet, WingXL’s site is indicated a Q3 2012 release, and has already posted three rather striking marking options. My favorite is Barracuda:

I’m particularly excited about this, as the B-26 is one of the really overlooked subjects of the modeling world. There are some 1/48 kits that are buildable, but they all have their share of issues and don’t live up to the Revellogram or Accurate Miniatures B-25 kits. And in 1/32 scale, there’s nothing.

Two 1/32 medium bombers is really pushing things, display-wise, but as of now, consider my interest piqued.

I’ll post more information as it becomes available.

    Awesome! You realize you have to do two of them. One OD and on NM.

      Well, WingXL never really went anywhere, so this ended up a pipe dream…
