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 Buffa[...]

End of the decade, add our favorite builds..

I have seen a few "All Decade" sports lists the past few days, so I thought maybe it would be fun to post pictures of our favorite builds of the past 10 years. Sadly some of mine died a grisly death at the hands of movers when I retired from th[...]

On This Day…June 4th.

There’s not much left one can say about Midway. My approach to this singular conflict is try and set up this first day of battle proper, and let the images tell the rest of the tale. Early on June 4th, Vice Admiral Nagumo launched his attac[...]

On This Day…May 24th.

The Battle of the Denmark Strait was a short, intense encounter that was a humanitarian disaster for the Royal Navy. In the early hours of May 24th 1941, the HMS Hood was sunk and with 1,418 souls on board, a staggering and scarcely believable[...]

Torp in the water! Another Monogram Classic done

well here she is my 1974 issue Monogram TBD-1. I painter her as a bomber from the USS Yorktown at the Battle of the Coral Sea. Scratchbuilt seats and interior details, Eduard seat belts. One of the interesting things I discovered while buildi[...]

Devastation continues in the cockpit…and apparently Kate will be here for Christmas….

Ok, maybe that was a stretch...nah...As I continued on my Monogram Devastator my Hasegawa Kate kept calling me from my stash, so I decided to do a dual build with both being Coral Sea birds. I will need to modify a 1/48 torp I have for her and [...]

Seats please…

Continuing with my Devastator, it became apparent that the seats were not going to cut it. They are actually ok, very good for the era, but I chose to scratch build the pilots and radio operators seats, I'm still deciding on the gunners seat. [...]

Next up an old friend The Monogram TBD

I built this kit as a teen, my late brother was always good about getting me a kit for my birthday and I still remember getting this one when it was the hot new Monogram pressing. A while back I found an original 1974 issue of the kit. The pol[...]
