I need the color guide for painting the Trumpeter 1/32 kit of the TBF. If anyone has it, please do me a huge favor and send it to me. The instructions do not include this minor feature although there are numbers in the instructions, just no colors or paint manufacturers named. Thanks a lot. Funny, for more than 100 bucks list, you'd expect this to be part of the instruction sheet.

Christopher Mullins started working on this again, I stopped because I was having a lot of problems with the turret. I think i go tit now, but it is a bit marred from glue from before unfortunately. I had to repair the landing gear, both Mains were broken, but so far it is looking better. Took some pictures of the interior detail cause I think it looks pretty good, even though I think the green is far too bright and I should mix it to tone it down some.

Kerry COX I am SO happy for you Gareth. There will be many happy days ahead mate. And the basement.! ? Yeah, solid gold. hehehehe :)

Clifford Keesler Cool, I am happy for you Gareth. Nice project. That is one that is on my list.
1. August 2018, 02:48
Gareth Windsor So I found a database of aircraft side numbers and it says that JZ527 (the "Yanks in Roundals" decals i have) is actually a TBF-1C (Avenger Mk2) not a TBM as the instructions say. General Motors started supplying TBM-3's (Avenger Mk3) from JZ635. So my next bit of research....... When the aircraft arrived in the UK they were sent to Blackburn to be modified for the Fleet Air Arm. It appears that this was mostly just radios and seat straps. The Observers seat was also fitted directly behind the pilot (US Avengers have radio equipment here), but it seems that at some point this seat was removed to accommodate the increasing amount of electronics that were being developed rapidly.
I have a feeling I can ignore the extra seat as the decals are for a 1945 aircraft.

Gareth Windsor
Credit must also go to Dana Bell. His article in the October 1997 FineScale Modeler magazine. His 3 volume set Air Force Colors contains some useful info.

"TBF-1 / TBF-1C, Avenger. Cockpit: FS 34058 Bronze Green forward from the bulkhead with the window (in front of the turret). FS 34151 Interior Green for the rear crew areas. Light Gray (Grumman Gray) inside the cowling, (FS 36440 is very close) and accessory area. The stainless steel 'Dishpan' firewall was unpainted and often quite bright. Torpedo bay: FS 34151. Remember on all of these a/c the general rule is that the wheel bays, landing gear struts, wheel centers, landing flap bays, etc. are the under surface color. On the Avenger the inside of the flap itself was the upper surface color with the inside of the flap well on the under surface of the wing being the bottom color."
1. August 2018, 16:17
Kerry COX Thank you again Gareth. These links are fantastic. :)
Cheers mate.

Wim van der Luijt Thanks for all the Intel, saving it all as I plan to build one too....post war strike or warner version most likely.

24. April 2016, 21:18
Kelly Wellington Avenger, Dauntless, and Wildcat. I have a Catalina built, but it's in Coastal Command colors, rather than US Navy blues. Curiously, when I get around to it, my first B-17 will be in Coastal Command colors. "Minding the Gap", as it were.
24. April 2016, 21:31
Clifford Keesler I have an Avenger and Dauntless built, guess I only need to add a wildcat. I want to do a Short Sunderland flying boat. I think it is neat and I like the Coastal Command colors.
26. April 2016, 00:10
Kelly Wellington I assume you've seen my Coastal Command collection? I recently finished the Sunderland, but the Whitley album has group pix. Next up in that series is the Handley Page Hampden....then, I have to go back a do another Anson, as I was NOT pleased with the Airfix kit. I suspect that the Special Hobby Anson kit holds special challenges for me. Last, I think I'm going to be forced to do the biplanes from early in the conflict...Stranraer, Walrus, Vildebeest, Gladiator, Tiger Moth...struts...shiploads of struts.

26. April 2016, 01:54

Robert Thanks for the reply. Its my first time scratching. So far so good. A little bit unclean, but I'm OK with the result.
The kit is old, but I've build newer kits with more problems.

Philippe Verhelst Ok, My first FROG, and it's a nice kit. Assembling is very good, not too much trouble.
Now my skill is better than in the beginning and I'm able to get more fast result.
I'm relatively happy with the masking of the canopy and the turret. Not perfect but ok.
The big trouble was for the paint, I have used "Extra Dark Slate Grey" and it seem its really too dark and there is not so much contrast with the Dark Sea Grey" (Italeri Acrylic), but too late.
I also make the mistake to put the Extra Dark Slate Grey first, then the Dark Sea Grey.
Also for the decals there is a problem of alignment in the printing.
I used the 'white JZ386' but the 'JZ535' decals was my first choice but too 'dark'.
During the construction I also find a way to manage 'Insignia White' problem.
If i try to use glossy white it take me too much time to achieve a result.
My solution is to paint in white mat, then after i can easily put a layer of insignia/gloss white to achieve same result.

Nicolas Valtinson I'm guessing you're very big into WWII US navy currently?
26. December 2014, 09:19
Christopher Dworjan I think I have a bit of everything. But I like to build models based on the story behind them, so I got motivated to look up which squadrons flew off of Taffy 3 during the Battle of Samar. They were as heroic as the escort ships, conducting dummy torpedo and straffing runs all morning.
26. December 2014, 23:16
Nicolas Valtinson Yea I'm the same way, I've been thinking about doing some navy aircraft but am rather inexperienced in that field. Not history wise but building them.
27. December 2014, 03:11
Christopher Dworjan There's definitely some really good kits out there for US Navy aircraft that are nice builds as long as you have enough blue paint for them. I build in 1/48, and have done Tamiya's F4U and two of Eduard's F6F and both are pretty much painless. The Great Wall TBD also turns out great, but there are one or two specific hiccups in the build. There's others too.

If you ever want to get into the Navy side, and you have any sort of questions, feel free to ask. Whether it is about the models or the real world aircraft, anything is fair game. Afterall, that's why I signed up for this site.
