Is that for a B-26 Marauder, or B-26 Invader?

My Grandfather grew up in Jasonville, Indiana about 30 miles south of Terre Haute. He went over to North Africa/Middle East on the Pasteur with the 9th Air Force and was with the 9th until the end of the war. I am doing a modelling project of every type he may have seen/laid hands on during his time overseas. Ive completed a P-40F from the 57th FG and am now doing a B-26 and want to do the marking of Terre Haute Tornado.

If I have to I will do my own decals but am wondering if there is a sheet on it.

Regards,
Mark

How did you know about the Tornado? Was that his plane?

Broken Wrench,
No, he didn't fly with the 9th but I am sure he saw it, fixed it, loaded it, and/or knew about it since Terre Haute was so close to his home town in Indiana.
I am doing a modeling project on every type the 9th employed that he might have seen/laid his hands on.
I saw the "Terre Haute Tonado" in the 9th Air Force in Colour book that I have and thought it would be perfect.
Regards,
Mark
