Well that's some sad news about Mike and his publishing empire.

Looks interesting, I'm not a 1/48 scale builder, but I've got an OLD Aurora B-26 half built in the stash, the fits were terrible, the repairs to the joints were even worse. I know Mono absorbed Aurora, I do hope that they quietly buried that B-26.

Yes, it is a shame he ceased publishing. I think his product is excellent.

Fortunately, Monogram's B-26 is not Aurora's B-26. Mike mentioned to me on the phone that the three 1/48 B-26s - Aurora, AMT, and Monogram - are separate kits.

It’s a real shame as I was looking forward to this. Now it will be another lost book that I want......
