    G'day good peoples, the latest one completed. A very nice kit from Trumpeter their 1/32 TBF-1C
    Quite a complicated kit to build but your patience will be rewarded with a fine looking model. The trickiest bit is you need to plan ahead with regard to your assembly and painting procces. If you think it out and take your time it will all go together very well. There are no major hassles anywhere on this kit with regard to fit, and Trumpeter got the decals right in this one. (no spelling mistakes on my sheet!)
    OK enough banter from me here she is in done up in her Atlantic Scheme as a Torpedoe carrying VC-42 bird from the USS Bogue CVE-9 in the spring of 1944.
    And yes..............that rear gunners turret is a pain to mask:lol:
    Hope you like it
    Cheers
    Jim

    Thank you all so much, it is great to receive the feedback gents.:D
    She's a whopper fellas :shock: (fortunately I have the room to work on and store these 1/32nd models). The models detail is magnificent, Grumman built them like the proverbial "Brick Sh*t House" and the model is engineered pretty much the same way!
    A couple of more shots for those who are interested...........

    Not the most flattering of shots of a Lady.............Up the "Big Gals" skirt

    Nice work. I have the 1/18 scale Toy from 21st century in the Atlantic scheme. If anybody needs reference photos of the TBM for future builds, I can give them to you; I've been involved in a restoration of a TBM in Pennsylvania.
