Product Description

This is a 1/72 Plastic TBF-1 Avenger US Navy Torpedo Bomber from Academy Plastics. It's for ages 10 and up.

The TBF-1 Avenger was available in sufficient numbers to be present for the outbreak of WWII despite the fact that it only made its first flight on 1 August 1941. The Avenger was especially popular because it could carry a full size submarine torpedo. This requires a weapons bay capable of carrying up to 2,000 pounds of bombs or other weapons. The Avenger also carried more defensive armament than many craft. The Avenger remained in use both during and after World War II.

long lived mould... Still buildable though!
By jclemente1980 July 25, 2015
So, I've built this kit long time ago, when it had another box... But I googled it, and it is still the same mould, the same parts. The fitting is nice, the engine is not complex, but has enought details... The cockpit could be more elaborate, but its not bad, even if it has a lot of clear, we dont see that much unless we really look for. It is a simple kit, of a complex airplane. The heavyest one engine bomber that fooled the japanese airforce, who thought it was a fighter, and placed relaxed behind them... and didn't knew what hit them, didn't expected the rear pointing machine guns. It was projected after the pear harbour attack, it was meant to avenge them. It did its job. Even if the kit is not that elaborate, Its nice to start with, to have it even if it is your one time model.

Simple price for a simple model
By kennethlinger June 15, 2017
straight from the box, you can tell its very simple and the complexity is minimal. Each piece fit very well with very little filler and sanding. Detail is lacking but for the price and size its expected. Overall it was fun to build and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Lacking in research, but ok kit.
By rovert815 October 16, 2017
This kit is typical of Academy. Simple molding, ok fit, lacking in decals, and a bit of confusion in their research. This kit if built straight from the box actually represents the British variant, and the included decals are for a paint scheme from a TBF-3. To do the kit right, it requires some careful modification and scratchbuilding as well as sourcing of decals. However, for a quick simple build or for someone first starting out, its a great cheap kit to get the basics of kitbuilding down.
