Hi guys, here's my latest completed build. The RNZAF operated the TBF, not TBM, but with this kit being my only option, I decided to finish it in RNZAF markings regardless.

I used custom mixes of Tamiya acrylics for the camo, Montex vinyl masks for all of the markings, watercoloured pencils, oil washes, Ammo enamel washes and AK Interactive pigments for the weathering. I replaced the .50cal with a Master Models brass barrel.

F#$k me that's a nice build. Gotta agree about the value and worth of those Master barrels. It's a simple addition and it really does give a nice crisp focal point that sets off the model nicely.
