Damn the Torpedoes!

Recommended Posts

Hey all

So I'm just about finished my Accurate Miniatures Avenger (In the Academy box) and I've decided that seeing as how the Avenger was designed as a torpedo bomber, it just makes sense to put a big ol' Mk.13 Torpedo in the weapons bay as opposed to standard GP bombs. As the Academy boxing only comes with bombs, I've sourced a very nice resin torpedo from True Details, however, I'll be damned if I know how to mount the darn thing in the weapons bay. I've tried every combination of "torpedo, avenger, mount, etc" in Google that I can think of, but to no avail.

That is why now, I rest my fate in the paint and cyanoacrylate covered hands of my fellow (brit)modellers...

Regards,

KHood

Here you go :D

The torpedo bay had from the attached photo links two 1/2 moon type mountings to which the

top of the torpedo rested with support cable slings from the bay roof under the topredo

I don't have my copy handy of the Squadron TBF/TBM Avenger book, but seem to recall either photos or

drawings of the mount with torpedo if you can access a copy.

Hope that helps?

Regards
