Douglas TBD Devastator

TBD-1 Devastator VT-3 Midway

The Douglas TBD-1 Devastator was the US Navy’s premier torpedo bomber when hostilities broke out on December 7th 1941. Six months later it was completely obsolete and removed from combat operations. The subject of my build is from the [...]

Another Devastator

Bill Koppos has already done an excellent review of the kit on this site, to which I have little to add. I totally agreed with all his points about the strengths and weaknesses of what I thought was essentially a very good kit. The only [...]

Review: Trumpeter 1/32 TBD-1 Devastator

From the beginning of carrier aviation, the torpedo had been seen as the best weapon for aircraft to use against warships, given the light explosive weight and inaccurate aiming of aerial bombs. Due to the technology of the torpedo itself [...]

Review: At last, a large scale TBDTrumpeter 1/32 Douglas TBD-1 Devastator

"Mythical", according to Merriam-Webster, is defined as :existing only in the imagination: fictitious, imaginary. Well, for how many years now has a Trumpeter 1/32 scale TBD Devastator been dangled in front of the modeling [...]

I have seen the Trumpeter 1/32 TBD-1 Devastator - Good News

Was up at the LHS this afternoon and they had one of the new Trumpeter 1/32 TBD-1 Devastator kits. Yes! Thirty years of "coming soon" has arrived! It's no longer vaporware. It's real. So how is it? It's like this: 20 years ago [...]

TBD-1 Devastator Monogram 1/48 and Tamiya figures "WW2 pilots with moto-tug" 1/48

Hello friends, here comes my TBD-1 Douglas Devastator from Monogram in 1/48. The kit was released in 1974 and cannot live up to the high standard of the Great Wall Hobby kit. I also would like to point out that there are better built [...]

TBD-1 Devastator VT-6, 1Feb 1941, Airfix 1/72

This was flown by LtCdr. Massey and RMC1c Grent, over the Kwajalein lagoon in Marshall Islands. Massey was later lost at Midway. The kit is an old boxing of the Airfix kit. Except for the crude clear parts, the kit was pretty clean. The [...]


Found these two on the web, at a reasonable price. I have noticed of late that prices have gotten way out of hand. I bagged these with shipping for around 20 dollars US each. Some listings , for the TBD goes for three times as much or more.

PTO builds you say?

I'm in with my classic Monogram SBD, built as close to intended by the gang in Morton Grove as I could, then my Monogram TBD, with some scratchbuilt details, and my Tamiya 1/32 Corsair! I actually think the SBD is my favorite, brought [...]
