          for unspecified trials, later to A&AEE at Boscombe Down.  To RAF as KL690.  Serial TW224 also
          allocated but alloted in error and never carried.  RAF decided not to proceed with the A-26 Mar 1945.  
          Returned to USA Feb 11, 1947.  To US Navy as JD-1 BuNo 80621(?) in 1947.
43-22482 to RAF as KL691 for trials at A&AEE Boscombe Down.  Serial TW222 also allocated but was alloted in error
          but never carried.  Returned to USA Feb 11, 1947.  To US Navy as JD-1 BuNo 80622(?) in 1947.

Oh YESSSS! An A-26 in Raspberry Ripple!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: ;D ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I have made a counter invader into a contra prop turbo prop version, not quite jet powered but nearly. I also put a 25 mm gatling gun in a turret on it, just to make it even more deadly  :wacko:

DE, DL, DT refer to the build factories; Douglas El Segundo, Douglas Long Beach and Douglas Tulsa, respectively.
The block numbers are used to track and organize production design changes.


Thanks Jon. I thought they were but wasn't sure

So, do ya want guns or not pilgrim?  ;D

This one will not have wing guns thankyou  :thumbsup: I may well do a solid nosed version (the Revell kit is in the stash) with wing guns for use over Europe
Decals my @r$e!

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
