  1. After the TBM-3W Guppy (link), Sword Models is to release new Grumman Avenger variants https://www.facebook.com/swordmodels/posts/256373042442580 Expected late June 2020: - ref. SW72130 - Grumman Avenger AS.4 Source: https://swordmodel.cz/en/home/151-sw72130-avenger-as4.html - ref. SW72131 - Grumman TBM-3S2 Avenger Source: https://swordmodel.cz/en/home/152-sw72131-tbm-3s2.html - ref. SW72132 - Grumman TBM-3R Avenger Source: https://swordmodel.cz/en/home/153-sw72132-tbm-3r.html
  2. Junkers Ju.188A-2 'Racher' (03855) 1:48 Revell The Ju.188 has a long and confusing development as a proposed improvement to the Ju.88, which was becoming less effective against the evolving Allied fighters as time marched on. It began life as the Ju.88B-0, but it wasn’t a major improvement, so languished in limbo because the expected Ju.288 was expected to far-outstrip it - once it was operational. The trouble was, the 288 was having the same problem with engines that the 188 was, plus other issues that delayed it yet further. The worsening situation with the J
  3. Modelcollect Hobby Inc is to release in 2018 (?) a 1/48th McDonnell Douglas A-12 Avenger II kit - ref. UA48001 Source: https://www.facebook.com/Modelcollect/posts/1003754996446267 V.P.
  4. Hello to all, While the Mirage 2000 awaits its paintings, I attacked another kit, the TBF-1C Avenger from Hobby boss. It is a rather original subject which does not exist very little at 1/48 in the end apart from Accurate Miniatures. The kit is complete, beautiful, as much as the AM, I can not judge, I never had it in hand, I leave it to the experts. However, the kit has its shortcomings, such as many injection pads placed everywhere and especially in places that are difficult to access such as in the arming bay for example where this area is dotted with inj
  5. Today I want to present "civilian" version of TBM-3 - Tanker 74 Model is based on Hobby 2000 TBM-1C (#72010) kit, decals from Draw Decal (No. 72-TBM-1) with some scratch added (to be honest - some decals are home-made too; Draw Decals set have not enough digits to make a complete miniature). There's no WiP from that build but if someone will be interested in short story - I've some photos in backup Some data (and photos) about this Tanker you can find e.g. HERE. Back to model (LARGE photos - click on miniatures)
  6. Please find my latest completion Italeri's Grumman Avenger in 1/48 Scale. The kit was nearly built out of the box apart from a P.E. seat harness and decals by Print Scale for the insignia and markings plus a Techmod sheet for the stencilling since most of the original decals were not usable anymore from this ebay purchase. (Which was made clear to me prior the purchase which was at a reasonable price) Had some trouble with the windows, which required a few polishes with Tamiya polishing compound after which there were still some blemishes apparent. I once came acr
  7. This is a refugee from last years Frog Squad GB This is the reason I am keen to build it, as it served at Macrihanish with 857 Sqn, Fleet Air Arm. Macrihanish is near Campbeltown in Argyll on the Mull of Kintyre, it's a bit of local history. The previous build thread is below, Still lots to do, will post further photos soon. Cheers Pat
  8. I'm all moved in to my new place, got the internetz up and running with no effort at all (plugged the router in, switched it on, walked the dog, came back, used internet) and am currently still a bit dazed by the extra space I have here. I got my modelling table set up in the back room: Just look how tidy! And remember it well for we shall not see its like again. I will be building this bad boy: I bought it several years ago, I can't even remember where now but they were as rare as hens' teeth even then. Fortunately for anyone who w
  9. I have just completed this model from Hobby 2000, It is a re run og the Hasegawa under new label. Very nice kit fit is perfect as can be expected from an Hasegawa kit. The kit included the decals used on this model of the very well known burial at see of an airmann and his aircraft. Cheers Jes

  11. Hello All, Hasegawa's Avenger competed as an aircraft deployed on HMS Indomitable Dec 44 in the Indo Pacific. OOB with the exception of a replaced tail radio mast (broke the kit one). Thanks for looking and Happy Modelling. Ian

    TBF-1 Avenger

    What's the reason for the look of the window below the gunturret on the Avenger's? Was it a hatch that could be opened or.. ? Cheers / André
  13. Hi everyone ! After a very long time i present to you my latest project . At first i thought that this would be an easy and oob project . When i started assembling the cockpit , i decided to try and improve the whole model . I give you photos of my progress so far . Thank you!!! [url=https://flic.kr/p/nNW94V]P6010230
  14. Hi Thi is my entry for this group build, a TBF/TBM Avenger in 48th scale from Italeri (rebox of the beautiful Accurate Miniature's kit) I have not already decided the livery and the version My first intention was to build an early version with the use of the rare KMC update set, (It would be great for me to build the only survivor of the battle for Midway) but I also own some good Techmod decals that I'd like to use (don't worry , i have another box) Aftermarket decal A pair of
  15. News for Star Wars fans and those who like Star Destroyers. Good news from the new workshop of Randy Cooper Models was announced late last month. Randy has completed his revised and re-tooled Avenger class Imperial Star Destroyer 1/1500 resin model. Randy has been taking back orders for around 6 months and has started to put the waiting list into production now that he has moved home and has his new workshop set-up. For the UK buyer, you will be looking at paying around £700 for the model once shipping has been included for export from the US. HMRC will still need to ha
  16. Unless I dreamed it (which is less unlikely than it may sound!), someone recently posted a link to a really excellent webpage with thorough details of the interior colours of USN types, not just Corsairs, Avengers and Hellcats but more obscure types as well. As well as cockpit interiors, it listed cowling interior colours, wheelbay colours, etc. Unfortunately I forgot to bookmark it. Does anyone else recall following this link and could they please remind me where it is to be found (or at least the thread in which the link is found)? Thanks in advance.
  17. Hello folks, This is the Academy (Accurate Miniature) kit. It is very detailed but the manual is poorly designed as it retained only the pictures of the Accurate Miniature's one without any explanation. I also used some Eduard photoeched in the cockpit, the decals are from Berna. Hope you like it. cheers
  18. This kit is a monster - both in sheer size and by measure of the amount of work that will be needed to complete it. Ordered from Randy Cooper in the US in the Spring, this must be one, if not the last of his old Devastator mouldings. A nice challenge ahead - when was a short run resin kit ever meant to be a simple lick and stick job. If I'm honest with myself, I'm quite looking forward to the amount of work needed here. The Hangar parts are not really usable due to shape distortion so I have commissioned a 3D build which will be an upscaled hanger produced for the Zvezda 1/2700 ISD - the propo
  19. My next attempt at model building will be the 1/32 Trumpeter TBM-3 Avenger. (Apologies to jean who requested the 1/32 F-105, but there are too many corrections and additions I need to make to the 105 and just want to do something semi-out of the box.) When this kit came out, it was reviewed as one of Trumpeter’s better kits as far as shape and accuracy is concerned. The box art is here. Inside there is some included kit PE and it looks like at some point in time I purchased the Eduard Seat belts. Now the kit PE has seat belts, but the Eduard are so much better. T
  20. Hello all this is a post I've decided to transfer here from Real Aviation. I moved it so more people might get use from the photos. I have approximately 50 Photos but will only post 9 here for now. There was an EAA ( Experimental Aircraft Association ) Air Tour stopping by me this weekend. Planes there were a B-17G, TBM Avenger, T-6 texan, T-28 Trojan, & an L-5 Sentinel. and that pretty much covers it. I was only able to get photos of the B-17 though from my perspective outside the fence line. I will try to post other photos if you need anything specific not showing.
  21. Hi all, I recently completed this a few weeks ago and I decided to upload it here. The build wasn't that enjoyable and I'm not to pleased how it turned out to be honest . The decals are just a bunch of markings I had spare so it is in no way historically accurate
  22. Hello A few new pictures of my latest project. It's TBM-3 Avenger in 1/32 scale. Enjoy. Cheers Mike

    An old chestnut this, I am in the throes of assembling an old Accurate Miniatures Avenger and I would like to know how the hell the turret fits inside the fuselage. Years ago there was a link to some instructions on the Accurate Miniatures Website but that has well gone now. Just asking as I don't fancy a cock up at this late stage, thanks in advance lads. Dauntless
  24. A wee bit of a test to see if I can still post photies on the new set up forum. I back-dated the old Airfix Grumman Avenger to a Mk1 Tarpon of the FAA. A lot of the info for doing this was gleaned from this very Britmodeller Forum Changes and improvements are; fish-bowl observation windows, gun trough in top front of fuselage, removal of chin intake & reprofiling of engine cowling with the reduction of the number of cooling fins. Exhausts drilled out and replaced with sliced aluminium tubing. Guns changed for white metal ones. Yagi aerials correctly positioned and
