This is my Accurate Minatures 1:48 TBF-1C Avenger with Dangerboy wingfolds and  Verlinden Update set.  The resin wing was routed out with a motor tool to show the gun bay and ammunition box.

The model was painted using Testors Modelmaster Enamels.  The finished model was mounted on a wooden base with Verlinden's WW2 US carrier deck.  

The astute observer may notice some cracks in the national insignia as the decals were extremely thin and reacted quite violently with decal setting solutions. 

Enjoy!
