Academy's 1/72 scale superdetailed
TBM-1C Avenger

by Piotr Dmitruk


TBM-1C Avenger
VC-79, 25 February, 1945


Academy's 1/72 scale TBF Avenger is available online from Squadron.com




I have always wanted to make an aircraft model with everything “inside and out”, but based on a real situation. So, when I found this picture in Squadron- Signal “Flight deck- US Navy Carrier Operations 1940-1945”, I couldn't resist.


This is my version of this event.

Here is Academy's 1/72 scale kit with Aires resin (quite bad), Eduard photoetch, Pavla vacuformed canopy, Equipage wheels and many parts scratchbuilt.



All markings were painted. Some of the accompanying pictures show this model during construction.

Please enjoy.
