Grumman TBF Avenger

Post by daz greenwood » Thu Sep 30, 2010 11:04 pm

This is the subject of my build for the comp.

I have a thing for Grumman aircraft, and this one of my all-time favourite WW2 USN aircraft. The mighty Avenger.

So anyway the box art:

And what's in the box:

And the markings option, which is for an aircraft from the USS Bunker Hill in 1945:

Northrop YB-49

Post by benyboy » Thu Sep 30, 2010 11:42 pm

I bought a 1 48 B-17 for this comp but then I picked this up for eight quid at last weeks, Duxford bus show. Yes I said bus show :blush: :roll: :lol: I was there for the aircraft honest :D

I have a plan for this build and it does not include finishing the aircraft in a `natural metal` finish. First because I dont like it and second (and more important) I cant do it.

Image

This pic is a grab from the net untill I can get some of my own up. The usual camera problems :grr: The box I have is pretty similar to the one shown. It is quite batterd and was very wet, did you see the weather last Sunday :D A lot of the major parts are off the spruce but everything seems to be there as far as I can see.

I might as well of gone for the B-36, this thing is 72cm long :huh: :D

I will be putting up some progress pics but not going into techniques because i just dont have any :roll: :lol:

Good luck to all and thank you for running the comp :thumb: :thumbs: :thumb: :thumbs:
