GWH 1/48 Douglas TBD-1 Devastator in Barclay Scheme No.8
Hope everybody got savely into 2020!
Here´s another more rare scheme, built in 2015.
Besides the USAAF also the USN tested experimental camos on their aircraft. The US artist McClelland Barclay designed 8 schemes which were applied to two Buffalos, two BT-1s, two Vindicators and two Devastators.
In September 1940 scheme #8 was painted on a VT-3 bird.
Colors aren´t 100 percent sure but it was a very dark blue, a brighter blue for the two vertical half-bows on the rudder, a grey and finally white for the underside.
My dad used a selfmix for the dark blue, further Tamiya XF-18 Medium Blue, Gunze H334 Barley Grey.
GWH kit built oob, the camo was done with Uschi van der Rosten masks.
