1/48 Hemet Valley TBM Avenger firebomber.


Recommended Posts

my latest finished project..an Accurate Miniatures  Avenger with a lone star conversion and decals...it was a straightforward Even if the kit instructions aren't great)..the resin conversion fitted perfectly..the decals were very thin and went down well...a build i am very happy with.

Impressive models!

 

The Avenger looks very pristine, almost as if it was moulded in matt orange. Maybe some light shading work and a hint of exhaust stains could give it a bit more 'life', now that the foundation is so solid?

 

The Cat is really nice, too!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

thanks Joachim

the odd thing is when you look at in in the plastic it has quite a variation in finish..almost like mild fading(it seems Orange is a bugger of a colour to paint).

That makes for an attractive model Paul. I'm guessing the photography has removed some of the valuation in your finish. I rely on it to do that with mine. ;) You're going to have a great pair with the Tigercat, anymore water bombers?

it's kind of weird in some lights it almost looks like it has two colour oranges on it.......yes there will be another water bomber or two.....in the package with the tigercat tank is a Northrop F15 reporter conversion.
