My TBF Avenger

Recommended Posts

Excellent job, especially with your accent-work on the panel lines and exhaust staining not being overdone!:goodjob:


Having a built one in my collection, I know what you went through many would classify it as a "PITA" build:

  • Their "no-illustration instructions".:huh:

  • "Over-engineering" the cockpit interior so the panels all being too wide to simply fit into the fuselage interior require extensive sanding and filing.:deadhorse:

  • And then the gyrations you go through to fit the gun turret...:wacko:

Congratulations!

If you look closely there is a gunner in the ball (gun turret).

 

Neat!

Are those Monogram figures?

I would think a "smart cookie" think about marketing their figures separately like ICM does in their figure sets.

 

I reworked a seated spare pilot's masked face with that from a ground crewman to create a helmeted pilot figure with no face-mask for my Italeri A1-H Skyraider.

 

I still think they are the best in any scale!

Beautiful work - excellent camo work.

 

I will be starting my 1/32 Trumpeter Avenger in a few days, hope mine turns out as well.

"Photo-etched flight control hinges" never ever again. If its anything like their Hellcat, that I dumped in the bin, I would rather go for a live root canal.

I dont bother with those hinges, I will just cement the control surfaces into place.  I have done that with all such builds and only attach these in so much as they might be visible.  Most are not.
