12452 1/72 US Navy TBF-1 Avenger (Part # ACYS1651)


  This is a 1/72 Plastic TBF-1 Avenger US Navy Torpedo Bomber from Academy     
                     Plastics. It's for ages 10 and up.                        
     The TBF-1 Avenger was available in sufficient numbers to be present for   
the outbreak of WWII despite the fact that it only made its first flight on    
1 August 1941. The Avenger was especially popular because it could carry a     
full size submarine torpedo. This requires a weapons bay capable of carrying   
up to 2,000 pounds of bombs or other weapons. The Avenger also carried more    
defensive armament than many craft. The Avenger remained in use both during    
and after World War II.
