1/48 Douglas TBD-1 Devastator in Barclay Scheme No.8 - NEW PICS ADDED

Recommended Posts

#40/2015

It is done!
My dad managed to finish number 40 for this year which is also really the last.


Besides the USAAF also the USN tested experimental camos on their aircraft. The US artist McClelland Barclay designed 8 schemes which were applied to two Buffalos, two BT-1s, two Vindicators and two Devastators.
In September 1940 scheme #8 was painted on the following VT-3 bird.
Colors aren´t 100 percent sure but it was a very dark blue, a brighter blue for the two vertical half-bows on the rudder, a grey and finally white for the underside.
My dad used a selfmix for the dark blue, further Tamiya XF-18 Medium Blue, Gunze H334 Barley Grey.
GWH kit built oob, the camo was done with Uschi van der Rosten masks.

The canopy masking is a work of art in itself!

Nicely done and a very unusual subject!

Great work. Is it me or does that scheme make the aircraft look even more chubby?

It looks like another super effort, particularly with that old kit.                  Bob H.

OOPS .... I apologize. I have the old Monogram kit sitting on the shelf. Whenever I get around to building it my plan was to attempt to scratch build many of the cockpit details and also do some minor modifications of the engine to see if I could make it look better.    Bob H.
