Nice find Hesham.

Strange to see the main undercarriage gear mount on the outermost nacelles. I wonder why so wide a track?

A side question about James S. McDonnell Jr. I know that he left Martin in 1938 to form MAC and that he'd left Great Lakes in 1931. Does anyone know exactly how long he was with Martin?

Dear Jos Heyman suggest that the last project to Martin
was from competitors to Fairchild C-82,and I agree with
him,don't you ?.

There was a Martin Model 133 project circa 1933-34 described as a "Twelve passenger transport". This seems to correspond to it pretty well.

Even the 'inverted gull wing' (W high wing) is similar to the C-82...
