The P5M-2 Marlin was another revolutionary variant of the P5M Marlin built by Glenn L. Martin Company. This twin-engine flying boat was built with improved engines, conventional tail, and better hull form to serve the U.S Navy, the U.S Coast Guard, as well as the French Navy from 1951 to the late 1960s. The company's innovative move had given this Marlin aircraft with longer flotation base and better movement over the waves. As an updated model of the P5M-1, the P5M-2 was built with a T-tail and better bow for spray reduction during landing and take-off.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
