This my TBM-3 Avenger from Accurate Miniature in 1/48 scale converted to an AS-3 Avenger by using the Belcher's Bits conversion set # BB4.

This set is very nicely done, very nice resin pieces perfect fit.  I had some difficulties to adjust the long vacuform canopy, but it's my fault I'm not very good working with Vacform material.  I'm not very satisfied with the result, but to me it looks like an AS-3 Avenger.

The model was painted using Humbrol Dark Sea Grey and US Gull Grey, decals are from the conversion set and were very good. 

The model is for an AS-3 Avenger of Royal Canadian Navy 881 squadron onboard aircraft carrier HMCS Magnificent in Spring 1953.
