What all needs to be done to the Revell/Monogram 1/48 B-26B Maruder, in order to turn it into a B-26G version? I know the wing incidence was increased 3.5, but was the front of the wing raised with the trailing edge staying in exactly the same location? Or was the wing "pivoted" around the centerline, with the leading edge raised as well as the trailing edge lowered? I have been unable to find any good drawings, showing the change in the wings.

TIA

In my humble opinion I don't know if 3.5 deg. in 1/48th scale would even be noticable especially given the poor fit of the wings to the fuselage of that kit. I would concentrate on the other differences of the G version.
