1/72 Airfix B-26C “Yankee Guerrilla” in Flight

I built this kit during what you might call the “medieval” period of my model-making career. It was after the Golden Age of being 10, 11 and 12 years old, when my pals and I loved our childish little airforces as we pitted them against each other in outdoor miniature battles, but before the current older-me era of greater skills, airbrushing, and the Internet — which, to put it succinctly, has cut both ways by a) offering access to an audience community and a ton of pro-tips, but also b) making it “matter” more (too much?) whether a model is pleasing to anyone but me. When I built this model in my 20s I thought it was great and am perfectly satisfied with it today.

This week my son and I are using the “Yankee Guerrilla” in our Utah Beach-themed, 1/72-scale table top game — it has so far taken on and destroyed a SdKfz 7/2 37mm Flak halftrack — and so since it was already out I decided to give it the “in flight” treatment, the results of which you see here, as the bomber buzzes the control tower after surviving another mission.
