Explore our collection of diecast models of the Douglas A-26 Invader - Precision Engineered, Historically Significant, and Collectible Aircraft Models.

The Douglas A-26 Invader was an American twin-engine light bomber and ground attack aircraft used extensively during World War II, the Korean War, and several post-war conflicts. Designed by Douglas Aircraft Company, it was known for its speed, versatility, and robust firepower.

Featuring a sleek, streamlined design, the A-26 was capable of carrying a substantial payload of bombs and was armed with multiple machine guns for defensive and offensive operations. Key variants of the Invader included the A-26B, with a solid nose for guns, and the A-26C, with a glass nose for bombardier operation. The aircraft was re-designated as the B-26 Invader in the post-war period, not to be confused with the earlier Martin B-26 Marauder. The Douglas A-26 Invader's longevity, effectiveness in diverse combat roles, and its deployment in various international conflicts make it a subject of great interest for military aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those focused on the evolution of light bombers and ground attack aircraft.
