Thanks Gaz!:) It should make a nice looking bird after all is said and done. My understanding as to the change in designation was because the Martin B-26 Marauder was being phased out of inventory. The Air Force no longer used the "A" for attack designation so I guess they decided it was only natural to re-designate the A-26 Invader with the "B" suffix. Sure has caused a lot of confusion over the years.   🤪

I’m late to the party, John, and it may have been stated already, but the changing of the “A” to “B” was purely political.

The various Governments (Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, etc) didn’t want “attack) airceft, so the USAF just changed it to “B” bomber which was cool..
