    That's not a Martin B-10?

    Yeah, that's either a Martin B-10 or B-12, not a Douglas.

    B-10, you can tell by the small scoop on top just behind the cowing.

    I have noticed several B-10 that had the scoop and several that didn't and the same goes for the B-12.

    What I was looking for, was the exhaust because the P&W had a different layout than the Wright.

    True, but I believe the B-12 scoop was shorter on the top.

    It's kind of frustrating trying to ID the Martin B-10 or B-12, because there were slight differences just between the B-10A and B-10B...like intake, antenna array and such.

    For example, look at the difference between the cowl intake on your sig and the cowl intake on the B-10 at the NASM. The cowl intake raises above and behind the cowl while the intake in your sig shows the intake laying atop the cowl itself.

    The intake shown in schnautzer's photo looks to be a bit smaller and angular than the B-10 at the NASM although it is situated behind and above the cowl.

    The NASM doesn't have a B-10 or a B-12. I think you mean the USAFM.

    You know, there is a very good chance that I meant the NMUSAF but said NASM instead.

    I am not responsible for anything that has been said before I've finished my morning coffee. :evil4:

    The "B-10" at the NMUSAF is not a true B-10, it actually is a Martin 139WAN (Argentinian Navy) that was fixed up to resemble one. It actually is supposed to be a replica of one of the ones used in the Alaskan Flight (like my signature picture) but there were a few differences, such as the scoop. Her is a close up of the one at the museum:

    You were spot on about one of the easiest ways to tell them apart is the exhaust. Even a number of pictures in the archives were mislabeled. The safest way I have been doing it is the aircraft number itself.

    Guys: first I really appreciate comments on the pics i find

    Second: plse remember i (mostly) post the type name of the picture as it has been named. I am sure an admin could and should edit when consensus of type has been established. I would like that.
