Product Code: 72-TBM-2

Used between 1966 and 1972, Aerial Applicators Inc. of Salt Lake City, Utah operated three Grumman TBM's as aerial fire fighters in the western United States.  Use this set with the 1:72 Academy or Hasegawa TBF/TBM kits and a scratch-built tank.

Model built by Derek Olson using the 1:72 Academy TBM-1 kit. Derek used Mike West's resin Lone Star conversion set to transform the kit into a fire bomber after some heavy modifications to the cockpit plug.  To make the kit more closely resemble the proper -3 Avenger,  Derek added some thin sheet styrene to portray the full cowl flaps and also cut a chin cooling scoop.  Other than that, the kit was build out of the box. Model with finished with Testor's Model Master enamels.
