Hobby Boss 1/48 TBM-3 Avenger
Representing an aircraft from VT-83, USS Essex (CV-9), April, 1945.
A very well engineered kit and enjoyable build. Model Master enamels used throughout and constructed out of the box with the exception of the pilot’s seat belts, which are, you guessed it, foil from a wine bottle. No pre-manufactured masks were harmed in the process of painting the canopy framing.
