Atlas Die-Cast - 1:144 Scale B-26 Marauder - "Cleveland Calliope 3" - American WWII Bomber. (Mint in Styrene Box)

This is your opportunity to own a highly collectible miniature 1/144 die-cast replica of this famous American aircaft bearing the Ace of Spades Nose Art of 'Cleveland Calliope 3' with underwing and belly invasion stripes.

This superb mint and boxed, pre-painted and assembled model from Atlas' Military Giants of the Sky series requires only installation of the undercarriage to complete.  These are a simple push fit.  The model also has an optional and attractive heavy duty black plastic flying display stand bearing the name of the aircraft picked out in in silver. 

DETAILED INFORMATION

Mint in polystyrne box with clear plastic cover sleeve. 

The Atlas Military Giants of the Skies models are no longer manufactured or distributed.  They are only obtainable through 2nd hand markets.  Although they must therefore be described as 'Used', all models in my store are individually inspected before listing to ensure they are in mint condition.   

This model is from a private collection and measures approximately 118mm in length with a wing span of 148mm (4.6" x 5.8").  The box measures 170mm x 170mm x 45mm overall and weighs approx 150 grams including the model.  The model is secured in the strene box with a strap and will be shipped in a strong cardboard box with additional polystyrene / foam inserts to further ensure safe transport. 

If you are unhappy with this model in any way I will gladly refund / replace as appropriate.

HISTORICAL INFORMATION

While the B-26 was a fast and attractive plane with better performance than the contemporary B-25 Mitchell, its relatively small wing area and resulting high wing loading led to tricky high-speed landings. The R-2800 engines were reliable, but the electric pitch change mechanism in the propellers required impeccable maintenance and was prone to failure.  Failure of the mechanism placed the propeller blades in flat pitch with instant total loss of power. Due to the rotund fuselage, the B-26 engines were placed far outboard, and loss of power on one side resulted in a violent snap roll flipping the aircraft on its back. This led to a high number of accidents during takeoff, thus earning B-26 the nickname "Widowmaker" by its pilots. Other colorful nicknames included "Martin Murderer," "The Flying Coffin," "B-Dash-Crash," "The Flying Prostitute" (because it had no visible means of support, referring to the small wings), and "The Baltimore Whore" (because the Martin Company was located there) (Higham 1975).

The toll eventually led to a halt in production. During this time a commission of inquiry (led by then-Senator Harry Truman) was appointed to look into the problem. When Truman and the other commission members arrived at the Avon Park Bombing Range, they were greeted by the still-burning wreckage of two crashed Marauders. Indeed, the regularity of crashes by pilots training at MacDill Field — up to fifteen in one thirty day period — led to the only mildly exaggerated catchphrase, "One a day in Tampa Bay."

The resulting aircraft (designated B-26B) had a 6 ft (1.8 m) increase in wingspan, and other changes, some of which reduced the aircraft's speed. The newer version had reduced landing and stall speeds. The safety of the B-26B was an immense improvement: it had the lowest attrition rate of any aircraft used during the war. Nevertheless, it remained a challenging plane to fly and continued to be unpopular with potential crews throughout its life.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
