    'evening, all!

    It's me, again, and I've been developing the cockpit of a TBF-Avenger for FlightGear flight simulator, and now I've moved to the radio operator's station - but I have one problem. No matter how hard I look, I can't find a single photo of the RO's panel anywhere.

    Do any of you guys have some photos I could use?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tom

    Got some interior pics in a couple of books Tom (TBF-1 and TBM-3 variants). Give us a couple of days and I'll post them up for you.

    Fantastic! Thanks for the all the photos so far - norab, the photo you tried to show us isn't loading; could you provide a direct link to the photo instead?

    Ok, here's the pics mate, sorry about the wait!

    The first 3 are applicable for TBF-1, -1c, and TBM-1 aircraft, from 'Squadron/Signal no.1082: TBM/ TBF Avenger in Action'; the last 2 are of the TBM-3 radioman's station, courtesy 'Aero Publishers, Inc: Supplement to Grumman TBF/ TBM "Avenger" '.

    Hope these help!
