Greetings everyone.
As I am fun of building some unique airplanes here is another build to our Prague office.  A-26 Invader was modified by Garrett AiResearch to Turboprob engine test bed.  All nose section was modified.  Engines were tested in flight. 

I scratchbuilt the nose and installed it instead of model one. Then I also re-created the decals.

Final painting was based on the picture of the real aircraft from 1983-1988.

Happy Modeling.
