Model Airplane Factory, makers of hand made model aircraft, presents to you our Martin P6M Seamaster Flying Boat Wood Model Seaplane. The P6M Sea Master display model airplane is meticulously carved and painted to reflect the true detail of the original Martin P6M Seamaster aircraft. After passing through several stages of sanding and priming, our talented artists paint and detail the P6M Seamaster model seaplane with historically correct markings of the Seamaster P6M aircraft. The P6M Seamaster model airplane is supplied with a mahogany base for display.


The Martin P6M SeaMaster, built by the Glenn L. Martin Company, was a 1950s strategic bomber flying boat for the United States Navy that almost entered service; production aircraft had been built and Navy crews were undergoing operational conversion, with a service entry about six months off, when the program was cancelled on August 21, 1959. Envisioned as a way to give the Navy a strategic nuclear force, the SeaMaster was eclipsed by the Polaris submarine launched ballistic missile. Due to the political situation at the Pentagon, the Navy promoted the P6M primarily as a high speed minelayer.

The Navy and Martin felt that a new version, the P6M-2 would provide a useful aircraft. The first was rolled out in early 1959. Changes included new, more powerful J75 engines, an inflight refuelling probe, improved avionics and a canopy with better visibility. A buddy refuelling drogue kit had also been developed to fit in the bomb bay. Three had been built by summer 1959 and Navy crews were moving them through operational conversion when the program was abruptly cancelled in August of that year.

P6M Seamaster is a made-to-order model. Production & Delivery time for a Made To Order model is approximately 12-14 weeks.
