TBF-1C Avenger

by Christopher Erkens


TBF-1C Avenger


Accurate Miniatures' 1/48 scale TBF-1C is available online at Squadron.com




This is my 1/48 scale Accurate Miniatures TBF-1C Avenger in the "Truk Lagoon" boxing.



The model is build out of the box. I only added seat-belts and antenna wires. The details of this model are outstanding and it was a fun to build. A real challenge was painting the greenhouse and the turret, so I used EZ-masks for the first time and (in my eyes) they worked very well.



Another hard part was the insertion of the turret. After glueing all parts together I started inserting the turret to the fuselage. After a couple of frustrating minutes I managed it (somehow).



I used Xtracolor for airbrushing the three-tone camouflage scheme. Weathering was achieved with a black/brown wash. Exhaust and gun stains were airbrushed.
