Martin's B-10 was the US Army Air Force’s first all-metal monoplane bomber and Azur/FRROM’s newly tooled kit captures the type’s ungainly appearance accurately.
The initial boxing (FR0042) comprises five styrene runners and a small photo-etched brass fret and comes with a horizontally split fuselage. External detail is well rendered, with neatly moulded corrugated sections on the upper and lower airframe, and panels represented with fine recessed lines. Control surfaces are moulded integrally and fuselage hatches are in the closed position, although the crystal-clear transparencies mean that the excellent interior will be easily visible.
Markings are included for Netherlands East Indies and Argentine Air Force machine, while subsequent boxings feature Chinese Air Force and Argentine Navy subjects (FR0043), plus US Army Air Force examples in period blue and yellow livery (FR0044).
