Any good paper models of the Douglas TBD-1 Devastator?


I've been looking for a paper model of the devastator to build out of depron.I'd like to find one of the better quality ones with fuseloge formers and wing internal structures.Thanks Mike.

TBD-1 model


Hiya,

I'm brand new here, referred over from the Paper Models group. I love this so far... I can hardly wait to try my hand at cutting some foam!

As the TBD-1 is one of my all time favorite planes, I'm sorry to report that the only half-way decent model I've been able to find was printed by Maly Modelarz in 1991. The paper is crap, the ink is thin, but the design is solid and could make a very decent model. I've redrawn my copy in Paintshop Pro, and recolored it to the pre-war silver and yellow scheme.

If any one else knows of another, let me know as well!

Thanks,
Tolomere

Thanks for all the replies,with many google searches i had all but given up.I'll have to check out the Maly one and see if it's still availible.If it's a good model,which i'm pretty sure it would be,there stuff is usually very good quality.I'd like to just use it for templates for the depron and airbrush on color.Thanks again.
