  1. Beautiful aircraft!
    Impeccable assembly!

  2. I have this kit in my stash, and I am now thoroughly intimidated. Excellent work.

  3. JUlian, this is wonderfully done. I especially like the work in the torpedo bay, but it’s excellent!

  4. Nice job on that Julian. I have the kit and the big 32 trumpy one but aint gotten round to them yet.

  5. Those AM kits were pretty darn nice (still are) – and this one is proof. Nice build, sir!

  6. Nice!!!! Ditto on the torpedo bay. Well done.

  7. Outstanding work Julian, very nicely done.

  8. Wow a great looking model. I’ve always liked this class of USN aircraft – nice details everywhere.

  9. Awesome build of an exceptional kit. Fine work.

  10. Very nice! You did a great job with the kit.

  11. Nice work! Great paint job and that torpedo turned out sharp. I built the Atlantic ASW version back when those kits came out. You’re inspiring me to take the other two out of the stash and actually build them.

  12. You definitely have a thing with Naval aircraft and this one looks great, it’s the little details that make the difference. Is this a recent build?

  13. Julian, I like it !, Its seems to always take an extra level of effort to make a single color airplane looking interest, like you’ve done here. Well done !

  14. Terrific job on your Avenger, Julian. The fit and finish look superb.
