This article contains short accounts of some of the means adopted by Glenn L. Martin to build their first post‐war air liner, the 2–0–2, without the prior building of a prototype. Although this commendable effort to hasten into service a replacement for the Dakota eventually resulted in the production of an excellent air liner, we understand that it is an experiment that is not likely to be repeated. As was almost invariably the case during the war when a prototype was dispensed with, the delay in ironing out the teething troubles (which always seemed to be more than usual in such cases) and modifying the machines on the line was greater than that between the prototype and production.—EDITOR.
