Announced at Hannants. None in RN markings, shucks.

 

Could be as we never used the -3W.

 

AD-4W Skyraider next, perhaps?

I have the Mach 2 version, but I will gladly set it aside :D

Very nice, looking forward to a Kon.Marine one.

Be nice to see this followed up by a -3S2.

Wonder if they'll give us a TBM-3S so we can do a 'hunter-killer' anti-sub pairing?

 

After all, ACE did it with their AF-2S and AF-2W Guardian kits

 

...Just saying, Sword!;)

The -3S  and -3W weren't a hunter-killer pair though, one was anti-submarine while the -3W was an Airborne Early Warning platform.

I would love to see a -3S2 or an Avenger AS.6 though, the Hasegawa one is way to expensive.

In fact any of those late anti-sub, COD or ECM Avengers would be welcome

Got to get one, looks quite easy to convert to a fire bomber...

It would be nice to see Japanese markings at some stage on an AEW Avenger. Everybody seems to forget they had them.

Would be nice to see some markings in 1/48 for the excellent MDC conversion as well.

Both Mach 2 and Highplanes did JMSDF Avenger AEW boxings, but would be a nice option on this kit as well

JMSDF markings are included in Sword kit 72114.
