Italeri 1/48 FAA TBF-1C Avenger

Recommended Posts

This is my completed TBF-1C Avenger, JZ257/373 'P', 849 NAS HMS Victorious 1945. I used the Italeri kit, Xtradecal markings and an Eduard cockpit detail set.

The build log is at the link below:

Very nice Dave,

Another fine addition to your Fleet Air Arm collection mate and you came to a very similar conclusion to me for the Observers position. One of the things that I like about your in progress shots are the tantalising glimpses of what you have to follow in the wings,.......I`m looking forward to the Mustang and Kittyhawk!

Cheers

Tony

Nice work Dave, I really like the paint job! Quite the attractive scheme on the Turkey. Looking forward to your future builds!

Thanks all. I have a few more of these kits in the stash so I am planning at least one RNZAF aircraft and a few more FAA ones.

Looks very nice indeed! I am in the process of starting a Hobbyboss 'FAA Mk1' to be built as a MkII. Do the dome shaped windows come with the kit? I like what you have done with the observers position too.

A mighty fine job you have made of it, she looks a stunner! What paints did you use?

Thanks all.

For paints I used the US equivalents of Humbrol Hu159 for OD, Hu 125 for the EDSG and Hu90 for the undersides. For the overpainted area on the right wing I used Hu224 I think.

The dome windows come with the kit and I should have put more time in to fitting them properly as they are not quite right and sit slightly proud.

A very nicely done model David!!! :thumbsup:

I did the same one a couple of years ago for the Fleet Air Arm Group Build, except mine was probably late in JT-257's life! Mine had LOTS of extras thrown in, was a very enjoyable build!

It's great to see this build, I have a love of love for this aircraft and the model!

That looks excellent, though maybe a tad large for your photo booth.
