RE: TBF-1C Avenger
Jim!
That is just cracking.
Super work.
Delicate chipping, very good photos showing the excellent pre-shading (I assume) and well worked lightening on the panels.
The cockpit looks perfect, as does the bomb bay.
US Navy scheme...never easy eh...you have done a superb job with this model.
Clap, clap, clap...:bow:

RE: TBF-1C Avenger
Thanks guys, The Tri-color navy scheme has always been one of my favorites, I think I got a little heavy handed on the pre-shading on the underside of the aircraft, The Accurate Miniatures kits are great kits with a lot of details the only thing I added to this one was the seatbelts I've got a SBD dive bomber I'm going to tackle one of these days

Excellent work; the cockpit in particular is amazing.

RE: TBF-1C Avenger
Brilliant !

But where did the USN get their pilots to fly such small planes ??

RE: TBF-1C Avenger
I know you didn't just built this one however, since the thread got going again, it is a super sweet looking model!

@ Iwo Jim. Do you ever paint up the crew members on your models?

BTW, did you ever get around to finishing your SBD dive bomber?

@ Toni. I've never been standing next to one however, I believe this airplane is a pretty decent size, when compared to other US planes/fighters.

Thanks for sharing Iwo Jim.

Thanks Compass, These days it rare even to find a kit that come with a crew, I have a couple of Hasegawa F-4's that came with crew and I put them in, but those kits are 20+ years old, as far as the SBD its still in the box right now I have 1/72 EA-6B on the bench that I hope to complete soon
