This Summer LSM will be departing the big city for a place in the country. New shop and more new products including a resurrection of the 1/48 Martin B-10 and 1/48 export model as used by the Dutch.

The wings ,cowlings ,nose, canopy ,and belly forward of the bomb bay are all different from the B-10 The long green house version has many markings choices. The Dutch used them and some were captured by the Japanese who in turn gave some to Thailand so markings will include:
Dutch AF, Japan, Thailand, Turkey, and (USAAF, one overall silver used in Australia) Argentina may have also had one or two so that might be a possibility as well.

I am not going to take presale orders, sorry. Just causes too much trouble

exact location yet to be determined, still looking. Found one that sounds perfect on 2 1/2 acres with detached 2 car garage and workshop. Taking a look at it on Friday I passed up one last year because I was not ready to make the move. It had a 400 square foot sized house and a 1200 square foot garage/workshop! Also on 5 acres.

Those two orders had different engine cowlings like the Dutch orders but not the single long canopy or bigger forward fuselage or redesigned wing.

You told me about this some time back.
Really happy to hear you are able to move forward with this. If your shop and hobby stuff is anything like mine the moving process will not be much fun. But the good news is you will still be a Texan!!
I spent three years in the Dallas area and a little part of me is still Texan.
